“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!”

Their bond is like no other...

Not only because the pair go everywhere together but also because Barley is known to be able to destroy stuff toys but keeps his friend in good condition.

Their bond is like no other...

“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.”

They even go through tough medical procedures with one another.

“A few weeks ago, Barley got neutered and had to wear a lampshade for a week. We felt so bad for him that we got a cone of shame for Fluffy too. It definitely made him much happier haha.”

Why is fluffy so important to Barley?

 “Fluffy is his best friend and also his comfort blanket. He’s had him since the day he came home.”

Why is fluffy so important to Barley?

“Goldens are known for their soft mouth so I guess he feels comfort when he holds him and he loves the attention he gets when he carries him around everywhere!”
