They say that it’s hard to let go of old habits, and we think that there’s some truth to that. While it’s doable to change something overnight, there are just some habits we couldn’t easily kick out.
This Golden Retriever named Luna is an example. She’s no longer a baby by dog years, but her behavior strongly suggests she’ll always be a kid at heart.
Mom came out one day to see her beloved pet on her side, sucking on a little blue thing. It’s a pacifier, one that hooman toddlers use. That little bit of detail didn’t stop Luna from attaching her mouth to it.
Luna’s either more spoiled than the rest of the pets we know out there, or there’s a baby in the house who used a pacifier consistently. The pet probably observed this and went on to do the same.
We’ve got to say that both scenarios are likely, and either way, our Luna became attached to the pacifier. Perhaps it reminded her of her baby days, or maybe she just feels safe when she has it.
Mom tried to remove the pacifier, but Luna wasn’t having it. The pup picked the pacifier up and rolled over to stay on her back. The blue soother almost came down Luna’s throat, so mom removed it.
Luna’s owner was a bit iffy about touching the wet pacifier, but a mom’s a mom. The pup’s hooman positioned the binky properly so that her pet wouldn’t choke on it.
Mom had Luna suck on the protruding nub, and the puppy instantly went back to her zen pose. Well, we couldn’t fault this fur baby for behaving that way. After all, we all need our comfort zones.
We hope that you get to outgrow this habit soon, but we won’t judge if you don’t. Never stop doing what makes you happy, Luna!
