A little while after winning at the AIG Women’s Open, Nordqvist posted a series of photos with her dog Max. “10 weeks on the road… nice to finally be back home and get to meet the latest addition to our family, 10 week old English cream retriever Max,” she wrote, adding that it was love at first sight.

While people gushed over her new puppy, they could not help but notice that his mouth was in the AIG Women’s Open trophy she won not too long ago. Some comments only gushed over the retriever, some noted that maybe the first photo could have been kept private.

Most fans stuck to congratulating her for her win, also happy about her getting a cute puppy.
