Sometimes, the best part of birthdays isn’t the gifts you get from others. But the ones you get for yourself. Imgur user ‘jekyllandclyde’ recently turned 25, and she decided to mark the occasion by bringing a special new friend into her life. She adopted Teddy, a Cattle Dog/Australian Shepherd/Golden Retriever mix with piercing blue eyes and an infectious smile.
Not only is Teddy set to help her stay active during the coming harsh winter months, he’s also “got a good snoot to boop.” Really, what more could you ask for?
Consider rescuing a dog like Teddy from your local shelter rather than buying from breeders.
