Why are we not this puppy?!

Ben Affleck arrived in Atlanta via private plane on Monday afternoon to visit with his children, daughters Violet, 9, and Seraphina, 6, and son Samuel, 3, who are staying with his ex Jennifer Garner while she films her new movie Miracles in Heaven.

But he was joined with one undeniably cute pal who we just can't take our eyes off of...

The actor was cradling a fluffy yellow lab puppy in his arms and OMG IT'S SO FRIGGIN' CUTE WE CAN'T TAKE IT! The tiny pup looked so comfortable in the A-lister's arms, and we can't help but wish we could play with this furry cutie!

While the puppy may seem new to some of our eyes, the pet was actually adopted by the family back in May. According to Us Weekly, Affleck and Garner took their daughters to a dog adoption in the Pacific Palisades this spring, shortly before the high-profile couple announced their split in an official joint statement on June 30.

The twosome have been putting up a united front since announcing late last month that they planned to divorce after 10 years of marriage. A source tells E! News their split was "not contentious" and both parents want what's best for the kids.

"After much thought and careful consideration, we have made the difficult decision to divorce," the former lovebirds said in a statement last month. "We go forward with love and friendship for one another and a commitment to co-parenting our children whose privacy we ask to be respected during this difficult time."
