Reese Witherspoon Posts Pic of Herself Doing Yoga…with Her Dogs

Reese Witherspoon must be getting really bored during self-quarantine, because she just enlisted her two dogs for a backyard yoga class. (And yes, she documented it on Instagram.)

Over the weekend, the Little Fires Everywhere star, 44, posted a photo on social media featuring two of her dogs, Hank (a chocolate lab) and Lou (an American bulldog), striking a pose.

The pic shows Witherspoon sitting in a meditation pose as she shares the mat with her four-legged friends. In the caption, she revealed the secret to her yoga success: dog treats.

She wrote, “I call this #treatpose,” along with a yoga emoji.

Witherspoon is obviously referring to her dogs, who are patiently waiting to receive a treat. While the mentioned goodies aren’t visible in the photo, we wouldn’t be surprised if they’re stashed in the actress’s lap, pocket or—dare we say—sports bra. If you know, you know.

It’s important to point out that Witherspoon’s French bulldog, Pepper, is noticeably missing from the group. (The pet recently appeared in an Instagram pic with the actress’s three children slash doppelgängers: Ava, Deacon and Tennessee.)

Our best guess is that Pepper didn’t nail the pose like Hank and Lou, which is why he was booted from the photo. Either that, or he’s more of a Pilates pup.

So, did Witherspoon actually teach her dogs the treat pose? Or are there countless outtakes sitting in her “Deleted Photos” album? Our money’s on the latter…
