Little boy and his dog best friend are taking over TikTok with their cuteness

Rhode Island dad Kiel James Patrick shares the scenic view of his family’s New England lifestyle on TikTok and Instagram. Sometimes it’s a picturesque photo of the Nantucket docks or a hobbit house that looks straight from “The Secret Garden.” And while Patrick and his wife Sarah Patrick have some extremely romantic date nights, it’s their son Harry and dog Bennie that are the real social media stars. 

Nothing is quite as wholesome as a boy and his Golden Retriever. Bennie and Harry can be seen adorably playing on several of the family’s pool floatsgardening together and even engaging in some outdoor bathtime. But one video will surely hit you right in the feels.

“Storms aren’t so scary when you have your best friend by your side to snuggle and watch it with,” Patrick wrote in the caption.

A barefoot Harry stands on the massive front porch during a torrential rainstorm. Thunder audibly rumbles as the front lawn, lush with flowers and trees, becomes drenched. Little Harry reaches his hand out from under the awing to feel the rain. But he gets a bit spooked and runs over to Bennie who is comfortably nestled on the porch swing. A frightened Harry cuddles the dog like it’s his security blanket. 

The internet can’t argue with cute, so naturally, the brief clip racked up almost 500,000 views. 

“Out of storybook,” one TikTok user wrote

“This is the dream. Wow,” another said

  • Woman shares psychology behind why we seek toxic relationships

    Sonya Maya, a doctorate student and bartender, recently took to TikTok to share the psychology behind why people cling to toxic relationships. “Why is it that so many women can’t stop thinking about that person that won’t show them reciprocal effort?” . Maya went on to explain how “nothing creates an addiction like an inconsistent reward,” a phenomenon referred to as intermittent reinforcement. “Think about gambling, slot machines … When you get a text from this inconsistent person, it activates dopamine in the brain. Just like if you’ve been sitting at that slot table for a while and you finally get a reward”. This phenomenon is one that Maya says can numb you to the true quality of a toxic relationship. So, how’s a gal supposed to, well, stop being addicted to inconsistent people. “The first step is going to be understanding why you’re drawn to them,” Maya says. “Stop sacrificing energy for that person that isn’t reciprocal, do some self-reflection and time will heal,” she added
