Just in case you aren’t awake all night click-click-clicking on the Internet like I am, you may have missed a recent and most welcome addition to the viral pantheon: Bob, the Golden Retriever.
I used to think Chloe had the best dog life possible, but she only has a fluffy white airhead for a sidekick and a couple of cats and chickens wandering about, whereas Bob’s owner actually went out and got Bob his very own pets. As a follower of Bob’s Instagram,(and yes, of course Bob also has a Facebook page), I now get to thrill to daily photos of Bob and his hamster, parakeets and (this is bittersweet, RIP Birdie) lutino cockatiels.
I have my doubts about Bob’s master, one Luiz Higa, Jr. who hails from Sao Paulo, Brazil, because who is that person who would spend their entire day taking photos of their pets? Wait. Oops. Ahem…
Well, never mind that part. Just feast your eyes on Bob and his friends. He’s there any time of the day or night, and, like every other Golden on the planet, his goal in life is to make you and me happy.
