People Can’t Get Enough Of This Dog Whose Favorite Toy Is A Brick –
Like most good boys, he’s loyal and affectionate
Unlike other pups, though, Sunny could care less about popular dog toys such as tennis balls, squeaky plushes, or paw-printed blankies. No, his taste trends towards something more functional than fun: a brick.
Smoak documented Sunny’s relationship with the common building block — typically composed of clay and shale and forged in a kiln at a temperature of 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit if Wikipedia is to be believed — in a recent tweet.

I mean have you ever seen anything so pure in your life? Have you really???
Not unsurprisingly the internet quickly fell hard for the duo.

In an update threaded to the original post, Smoak detailed Sunny’s heartwarming backstory — and that of the brick itself, which moonlights as a paperweight.
i rescued him and his siblings off the street last year and we decided to keep him. We have the brick to keep the rug from curling up and he lays with it and kisses it for some reason haha

pupdate: I’m still in shock at the response, i can’t believe that his pictures have been shared on numerous insta accounts, Facebook, tumblr and on a buzzfeed article. It’s all very surreal. thank you all for all the love. we aren’t going to let the fame get to his head haha. pic.twitter.com/azcAne1YgJ
