There’s nothing cuter than an adorable dog cuddling his best friend. But did you know that dogs can make long-lasting friendships not only with humans? If not, it’s probably because you haven’t met Barley yet. Barley is a 1.5-year-old golden retriever from Amsterdam with more 81k followers on his instagram account @barleyboy. The adorable pooch is going viral for his friendship with a tiny mini-me companion – a stuffed toy that never leaves his side.
The pup and the stuffed animal have been absolutely inseparable from day one. “Barley’s had Fluffy since the very first day he arrived home. Fluffy was bigger than Barley when they first met so they’ve really grown up together,” his owner told Bored Panda.
When we say inseparable, we really mean it. “Oh my gosh, Barley brings Fluffy EVERYWHERE! Every morning, Barley wakes up and jumps up on our bed with Fluffy. Then Barley brings him out for a morning stroll. They chill together the entire day, it’s the sweetest thing.”
