This is Luca (the real dog) with his best friend, a fake mini Luca.
The story began on Reddit when Redditor Lerchasaurus posted a picture of her dog sleeping with her lookalike.
It’s her baby 🙂 She carries it around everywhere and always has it with her when she goes to bed.
Karissa Lerch, of Durham, North Carolina later explained to Buzzfeed that Luca, a 1 year old Alaskan Malamute, has destroyed every other toy she’s owned.
When she was finally able to get Luca, the stuffy predecessor became the real dog’s most loyal companion.
In return, Luca doesn’t destroyed the stuffed animal and carries it around and chews on it but won’t destroy the toy K9.
