Luca the Alaskan Malamute was given a stuffed animal version of herself when she was just 8-weeks-old.
The toy had previously belonged to Luca's owner, Karissa, before she had a pet of her own.
When Luca joined the family, the stuffed animal was lovingly passed down.
Luca is now a year and a half and, in a wake of destroyed a frayed toys, has kept her favorite stuffed toy by her side.
And they are as cute as ever.
See Luca and her best bud then and now.
