Lady and the Tramp, meet John Travolta and Peanut.

The 69-year-old actor and his son’s pup, Peanut, recently shared a slice of cheese pizza — and the resulting photo looked awfully similar to the Disney film’s iconic spaghetti scene.

In the picture, which the Grease star posted on his Instagram Story on Friday, the little dog stood on the table and tugged on a piece of particularly stringy cheese as Travolta took a big bite.

The Pulp Fiction actor shared another photo featuring Peanut, who belongs to his son Benjamin, this time a picture of the pair cuddled up together sleeping face-to-face in bed.

The snuggly shot is peaceful — especially when compared to a video Travolta shared of himself and the pooch in bed last year.

In September 2022, the actor posted a sweet clip of Peanut poking and licking his face repeatedly as he attempted to avoid the slobber.

"This is how Ben's dog Peanut wakes me up," he captioned the clip.

Peanut is the name Travolta’s son gave the rescue pup, who was formerly known as Mac N Cheese.

Travolta adopted the dog for Ben after Jamie Lee Curtis brought her onstage during a segment dedicated to Betty White and her dedication to animal welfare at the 94th Academy Awards in 2022.

"They were dumped in a box outside the Avenal Shelter," Chad Atkins, co-founder and executive director of animal rescue Paw Works, told PEOPLE about Peanut, her mom and her three siblings. (The Avenal Animal Shelter is a rural shelter in Avenal, California, that works with Paw Works.)

After Peanut and her family were dumped at the California shelter, Paw Works brought the pets to their facility to help find them foster homes.

When the 2022 Oscars approached, Peanut (who was still named Mac N Cheese at the time) was the only member of her family who had yet to find a forever home. She was the pup picked for the big awards show moment, thanks to a bit of luck — and Curtis.

A production company for animals was originally going to provide a trained canine for the Oscars segment, but the 64-year-old actress stepped in.

"It was actually Jamie Lee Curtis who said, 'No, no, no, we can't do that. Betty White is known for her compassion for four-legged friends, and she was always a huge advocate of animal rescue. It has to be a rescue animal,'" Atkins told PEOPLE.

After the Paw Works director sent photos and information about several adoptable puppies in Paw Works’ care, Curtis chose Peanut out of the bunch, and brought her onstage for the In Memoriam segment.

Atkins held on to the puppy for the rest of the night, and while several people expressed interest in adopting her, it was Travolta who "eye-locked" with little Peanut, held her for 30 minutes and followed up about adopting her the following day.

In March 2022, Travolta made the adoption Instagram-official, sharing a photo of himself, Peanut and the pup’s new owner, his son Ben. “Ben adopted this dog from last [night's] Oscar tribute to Betty White,” the actor captioned the photo. “Thank you @curtisleejamie & @pawworks.”

"So it's happily ever after for her now," Atkins told PEOPLE of the puppy’s future in April 2022 and — at least according to Travolta's Instagram posts — it has been nothing but pizza, love and snuggles since.
