From Romeo and Juliet to Kim and Kanye, history is full of legendary power couples that inspire countless tales of romance (or a tacky Italian wedding in the latter case). And last week a new power couple emerged on the Internet when the owner of an adorable husky posted two pictures to Twitter that showed the intense adoration the dog has for a certain cat toy.
The very unconventional couple stole the hearts of Japanese netizens with the short, but moving, saga of a dog yearning to be reunited with its toy after the stuffed cat was washed and the pure agony of waiting for it to dry.
According to the owner who had just washed the stuffed cat toy and put it outside to dry, the dog saw the toy hanging outside and just sat in front of it, waiting patiently for it to be returned almost like the legendary tale of Hachiko .
The owner said the dog was even whining and wouldn’t take its eyes off the stuffed Felyne character from the Monster Hunter video game series. The dog’s agony is unmistakable and you can almost feel it through the picture, reminding us all of that excruciating feeling of having to wait for something we want so badly.

After the toy dried, the owner returned it to the dog to reunite the happy duo. And with the husky and its toy back together, Japanese netizens began to swoon over the couple after seeing the incredibly cute photo of the smiling dog holding its toy.

Netizens were relieved to see that the dog had its toy back and many talked about how they completely understand the painful emotions the husky was going through. And since it’s likely the stuffed animal will have to be washed again in the future, let’s hope the husky has plenty of time to spend with it before experiencing that separation anxiety again.
