Habs’ current family adopted him three years ago. His mom, Jacqueline Estey, had a large plush teddy bear but as soon as Habs came, the toy has been claimed by him and he has not let his favourite toy apart from him ever since.

“Habs has always been inseparable from the bear. He likes to bring the bear all around the house,” Estey said. “If you pick it up, he’ll follow you around until you put it back down for him.”

And when something threatening his teddy’s life happened recently, Habs was not happy about it. They were inseparable, but the toy really needed a nice wash. So, when his mommy put his favourite toy inside the washing machine, he stayed right in front of it the entire time.

Thankfully, Estey took a video of his concern. Watch:

“I have never seen him do that for anything in the wash, other than his bear,” Estey said. “It was hilarious when I realized he was sitting there for the whole entire cycle and wasn’t moving for anything!”

Thankfully, the concerned dog didn’t have to wait for long before finally reuniting with his best friend. However, the terrifying experiences seem to have been implanted on his mind. He apparently woke up later that night from a nightmare in which the teddy was still in danger.

“I heard Habs scratching at the dryer door,” Estey said. “When I went in there, he was looking for his bear in the washer and dryer!”

The teddy was safe and sound, though.

“I walked him downstairs and showed him where his bear was, where he continued to lay down next to his bear,” Estey said.

It was only then that Habs had a sound sleep.

Even though Habs stole her bear away, Estey loves him unconditionally.

“He’s such a sweet puppy.”
