We love when our dog cuddles with us, but have you ever seen a dog cuddling with his toy? If not, it’s probably because you haven’t met Barley yet. Barley is a 2 years old golden retriever from Amsterdam. He has his Instagram account with more than 81k followers.
Barley shares his home with owners, Zita and Marc, and his tiny buddy-Golden Retriever toy named Fluffy.
Barley 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 us.
“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.”
“Every single time the human comes home, Barley picks up Fluffy and brings him over as a welcome-home present. Whenever he hears a loud noise or if the vacuum cleaner appears, he picks up Fluffy for comfort. He brings Fluffy to bed. He brings Fluffy with him when he has a bath so Fluffy gets washed too. He even brings Fluffy out for a pee!”
“Occasionally, he hangs out with his stuffed panda sometimes. Fluffy also has a big brother from IKEA but Barley’s not too interested in him. In fact, Barley’s destroyed all his other stuffed toys but has never once harmed Fluffy. He takes such good care of him, it’s kind of crazy how much he loves him.”
