Nina Dobrev uploaded a pic of herself enjoying the warm weather in a pink swimsuit while floating on a large pool floaty alongside her dog, Maverick, on Tuesday afternoon.
The actress was lying down on her stomach with her legs up and crossed at her ankles. She rested on top of a neon pink FUNBOY inflatable pool float. Aside from her one-piece swimsuit, she also sported a bright pink sombrero and a pair of sunglasses.
Dobrev’s toned legs were visible, poking out of her form-fitting bathing suit. The camera was situated on the side of the pool, capturing her lithe frame from her side. She reached out her hands to hold her dog in place as she looked down at her owner. She pursed her lips as if to kiss her pup on the nose.
In her caption, she noted that Maverick was very upset with her in the image despite how it appeared as if she was content. The former Vampire Diaries star admitted that her dog hates all things that have to do with water and that she was very eager to get out of the pool. She also joked that if she were ever drowning, the animal would sit on the sidelines and watch rather than jumping in to help her.
Dobrev hashtagged her post “#TB,” which seemed to indicate that it was a throwback pic. She also tagged her dog’s personal Instagram account in the photo.
Dobrev did not state her location, but it appeared to be a picturesque location with the pool overlooking the ocean beneath a nearly cloudless blue sky.

A picture is worth a thousand words. If this photo could talk it would tell you that @mrs.maverick wanted to kill me. She hates the water. She doesn’t like getting wet. She despises pools. If I was drowning she’d just sit on shore and watch it happen. She looks like she’s smiling in this picture but it’s all a lie. She couldn’t wait to get off the floaty and get as far away from me as possible #TB
Dobrev’s fans and famous friends quickly took to her comments section to praise her and react to her caption. Within an hour of posting, her post had garnered over 200,000 likes, including one from actress Zoey Deutch. Her admirers left more than 1,300 comments, the majority of which were positive.
Dozens of users wrote about how much they love Maverick, and several people labeled Dobrev and her dog “couple goals.”
“This is so sweet! I love you two!” wrote one fan.
“You and Maverick are the best couple ever,” another admirer gushed, alongside a starry-eyed emoji.

“No bond is stronger than a girl and her dog,” a fourth devotee chimed in, trailing their comment with two pink heart emoji.
Dobrev shared another throwback video last week. The short clip showed her wearing a black-and-white swimsuit and hanging out with penguins while on vacation in South Africa.
