Zac Efron Ups His Cuteness Quotient by Posing With Dogs (PHOTOS)

After months of grappling with the conundrum of how he can possibly seem more adorable, former High School Musical stud Zac Efron finally stumbled upon a solution in Aspen, Colorado, on Sunday, when he discovered that, by posing for the cameras while petting a group of lovable pooches, he instantly becomes 17 percent more appealing.

Thankfully, Efron experienced his “eureka!” moment before he had to resort to his back-up plan: Donning a pair of shorts and a blond, curly wig while skipping around and pretending to lick a giant, novelty lollipop.
