Everyone loves a doppelgänger, and this dog is no exception.
A photo set originally posted on Reddit by Lerchasaurus features a picture of an Alaskan Malamute puppy with a dog toy that looks just like her and then another photo of the dog all grown up but still very much in love with that same dog-twin toy.
The post states: “Then and now. She destroys every stuffed animal except this one.”
Since the photos were uploaded three days ago, they’ve been viewed more than 1.3 million times on Imgur. One look at the then-and-now photos and it’s easy to see why they’ve captured the Internet’s heart. So much mini-me cuteness!
Karissa Lerch of Durham, North Carolina, gave the dog, named Luca, the dog toy after she and her boyfriend adopted the little lady, Buzzfeed reports. Lerch had originally bought the stuffed dog for herself back when she was in college and unable to care for a real dog.
“When I was able to finally get my own dog, I passed the stuffed animal down to her and she has kept it by her side at all times ever since,” Lerch told Buzzfeed.
It doesn’t get any sweeter than that, folks.
