Like most Golden Retrievers, Tucker is a real people dog. He's not shy about introducing himself to new humans and greets everyone like a long lost pal. But there's one 'friend' that has a very special place in Tucker's big heart - his stuffed hedgehog toy.

Tucker carries the toy everywhere, treating it like the most precious thing in the world. The pair are almost inseparable. In fact, the only thing that can keep them apart is bath time - the dreaded moment when Hedgehog has to go for a spin in the washing machine.

Wash day is the worse day!

But even then, Tucker refuses to abandon his buddy. A recent video filmed by Tucker's dog mum shows the loyal pooch waiting anxiously by the washing machine as the hedgehog swirls inside.

Add when it was time for the Hedgehog to dry off, Tucker waited patiently by the tumble dryer too. The pair were finally reunited about an hour later, and we're pleased to say Hedgehog came through his ordeal intact. And he probably got a few extra cuddles of Tucker to make up for the lost time. Now that's love.
