As kids, many of us had that one stuffed bear that will always hold a special place in our hearts. You remember, don’t you? Being tucked in with it at night, lugging your special friend with you anywhere and everywhere…
Then we all grew up and got dogs, who make better companions in each and every way. Not even the most special teddy could compare to these beautiful pups:
1. Like this Husky pup who fits so easily in the palm of one hand.
2. Or this adorkable, smooshy-faced pup.
3. You can take your dog with you on any car ride, just like old times with your teddy bear pal.
4. And the fluff level of a real dog puts your teddy bear to shame, so you won’t be lacking any softness to squeeze. A dog might just hug you right back. Would a teddy bear do that?
5. You can even take your pup shopping with you. Guaranteed to garner more aww’s than a lifeless stuffed bear.
6. A teddy bear can’t take a nice stroll with you outside, now can it?
7. Little girls around the world can rejoice – you can still play dress up with your pup! (Treats for bribing sold separately)
8. This pup is better than your childhood teddy bear AND that silly plush lion. And probably the rest of your stuffed animal collection for that matter.
9. Just like those giant teddy bears you can get at Costco — but ten times cuter! And you can take them on picnics without being judged. No offense to any teddy bear picnic goers out there…
10. Can a stuffed bear enjoy a milkshake with you on a hot summer’s day? Didn’t think so.
11. That head tilt! It’s utterly irresistible. Yet another trait an inanimate object lacks.
12. This pup has mastered the art of cuddling. With you, or your shoe… either works.
13. When the pups’ tongue is bigger than his ears… *squeal*!
14. Just like teddy bears, dogs come in all shapes and sizes so you can find the perfect fit for you.
15. However, we’d argue that this pup has more piercingly beautiful eyes than any sort of stuffed bear out there.
16. Nor will you find markings as exquisitely unique as these!
17. So? Which stuffed plush would you pick?
18. Large, medium, small, and x-small sizes available.
19. You can get your pups’ hair done with no fear!
20. Whatever crazy do’s fit your fancy, go for it. Dog hair grows back. Teddy bear fur doesn’t.
21. Can a teddy bear be any cuter than this pup?! Impawsible!
22. Just way too unBEARably cute.
23. So, dog lovers out there…
24. Do you have puppy fever yet? Because we do!
25. If anything, have you forgotten about that childhood teddy bear by now? Yeah. We thought so.
