When a Golden Retriever was given a blanket by his parents, he thought it was the most special thing. It was actually a blanket that belonged to his new baby sibling, and they wanted to give it to him to get him used to the baby’s scent.
The dog instantly became obsessed with the blanket, carrying it everywhere he goes. He snuggled up with it one day at doggie daycare, and the rest is history.
