Of course, many of us like to do what we can for our furry friends and are willing to do anything to make them comfortable.
So one dog owner took caring for his pets to the next level by taking a large dog bed with him to the restaurant. In a video on TikTok posted by @ladyspinedoc on her profile, the woman wrote that her husband cares more about the comfort of his little ones than anyone else and takes a bed with him for his pets.
The two lop-eared dogs, eleven-year-old Pancake, and two-year-old Butter, can be seen enjoying a comfortable stay as they lie on the bed in the restaurant.
The pet owner, a fifty-three-year-old female neurosurgeon from Gainesville, said they visited a new restaurant in town with a dog-friendly patio. Her husband loves his dogs very much, and he does whenever he can take them out. And, of course, he has to make sure they are comfortable when they arrive, so he brings their bed with him.
