Danica Patrick enjoyed the Sprint Cup Series' rare off-week by vacationing in the Bahamas.

The Stewart-Haas Racing driver was bummed, however, when she had to leave early because of an approaching hurricane.

But what she found when she returned home to Charlotte, N.C., clearly lifted her spirits.

It seems that "Dallas Stenhouse" -- the miniature Siberian husky that Danica and boyfriend Ricky Stenhouse Jr. bought in May 2014 -- now has a sibling by the name of Ella.

By all appearances, the furry new addition to the Patrick-Stenhouse clan is already fitting in quite well.
