"🐾🐾❤️ Happy Birthday Sebastian. My stuffed fren was also 2 this year. 🎉"
Sometimes Twitter can be a toxic wasteland, full of trolls spreading false equivalencies and bad faith arguments.
And then there are times when the shared conversation takes a more wholesome turn.
Such was the case earlier in the month when Thoughts of Dog, a wildly popular account voiced from the perspective of a lovable and dopey Golden retriever, prompted its 2.9 million followers to share images of their favorite "stuffed frens."
"today. is my stuffed fren sebastian’s second birthday. and to celebrate. we would like to see. all of your favorite stuffed frens"
Seed planted, a sprawling thread of pups cuddling, smiling, and posing with their stuffy of choice quickly sprouted.
Not all that surprisingly, the best of the bunch were themselves volleyed back in doggo-speak and, well, and it was hard not to be overwhelmed by the purity and adorableness of it all.
