Kind Dachshund Insists That His Teddy Bear Eats Before He Does

Dogs are oh-so-thoughtful to those they love--most of the time, anyways--but Gideon the Dachshund takes that sweetness to a whole new level. Even his favorite teddy bear toy feels the love! We can tell that Gideon adores the plushie by the way he cares for it as he would for a baby, and it has us positively smitten.

The precious Dachshund has such a kind soul, so we aren't surprised to see how many fans he has. In fact, you can add us to that list now!

Aww! Gideon has successfully melted our hearts, and we wouldn't have it any other way. He's just the sweetest thing! It's safe to say that other viewers agree, too--just look at the comments!

"We don’t deserve dogs," wrote @erinjohnsonwelch. How right you are! They love so fiercely and unconditionally. Heck, you don't even have to be a living thing to be loved by a pup! Just like @shawnstinsong pointed out, "Proof that dogs are pack animals and that toy is part of his pack. Very cool."

If you ask us, 'cool' only begins to describe it. Maybe Gideon's love for his stuffed friend reminds us of all the teddies we've loved, but it sure got us right in the feels! @Karaxlewis said, "I wanna cry now," and we'd be lying if we said we weren't already one step ahead of you... Pass the tissues, please!
