Mom Shares Adorable Photos Of Rescue Dog Whose 'Best Friend' Is A Brick
Have you ever had a friend so special and true that you want to be with them all the time? That's the case for Sunny, a rescue dog. He has a unique friend that he just can't get enough of.
Ariana Smoak rescued Sunny and the rest of his litter when he was just a puppy. They'd been living on the streets and were malnourished and infested with fleas. Ariana nursed the puppies back to health, but there was something about Sunny that made the fluffy golden boy stand out from the rest of the pack. She decided to adopt him.
He quickly made himself at home...and also made himself a new best friend. Sunny's beloved isn't another dog. It's not a cat, a rabbit, or even a person.
Sunny's best friend is a brick.
Yes, that's right. A plain red brick that Ariana uses to hold down the corner of her carpet.

As a puppy, Sunny was curious about it. He wanted to spend time with it - he even started to sleep beside it. Aging didn't change his funny fixation. If anything, he seemed to grow more enamored with it.
He wants to be next to the brick all the time. If he's napping, it's usually with his head resting on top of it. Sometimes he curls protectively around it.
When Ariana posted a pick of Sunny and his best friend, the internet couldn't get enough of them. The views quickly grew. Ariana takes it all in stride. She thinks the fact that so many people enjoy looking at pics of Sunny and his brick is amazing.
