Who said man's best friend has to be a creature that barks or purrs? I put my vote on something that is soft and warm, is always there when needed, and always ready to give the biggest hugs, like the 15" Squishables.
An added plus is that they don't need regular walks and don't get jealous when your partner is sleeping over. What I really need is a giant, round, fuzzy animal by Squishable. And when I say giant and round, I really do mean it.
These lovely stuffed animals come in all different varieties including the sheep, shark and octopus featured. They're made out of 100% polyester fiber, and are designed in Hong Kong.
