Adorable Draco the pit bull have not had an easy start in life. But, there has always been one special thing that brought little Draco comfort in all good and bad days, and that has never left his side - a heart-shaped pillow with arms.
Ever since Draco’s mom rescued the orphaned puppy from a backyard breeder at just 2 weeks old, the little red heart-shaped pillow has never left his side and he has since then treated his pillow with care.
Anywhere the young pit bull goes, the funny-looking pillow is not far behind. “If anyone else picks up his pillow he will dart over and grab it. He sucks it every single day to fall asleep.”
Recently, after some time and receiving all the love from Draco, it looked as if the pup’s beloved cushion was destined for the trash bin, which is definitely something Draco wouldn’t allow. “Draco is a crazy chewer and we have become a ‘rubber toy only’ house because anything with stuffing he will destroy in less than five minutes. But he has been so gentle and loving with this pillow.”
For Draco, the saying ‘sharing is caring’ doesn’t include his prized possession. When Draco’s friend, a black Lab named Willow, wanted to share the pillow, he got a little too overprotective. Draco quickly rushed over to take back his prized possession and, unfortunately his beloved pillow ripped in the process. As stuffing began to bleed out, it seemed as if the worst had come to pass. But luckily, Draco’s grandmother leaped into action to save his beloved pillow.
“We think the pillow was so worn out it just easily ripped. My mom freaked out and grabbed it and yelled, ‘I’ll fix it, Draco!’”
While Draco’s grandmother was busy fixing his pillow with her sewing machine, the little pup couldn’t just stand idly by while his true love was being operated on. “The whole entire time Draco’s head and paws were peeked over,” O’Cain said. “He was whining and trying to reach it with his mouth. He acted as if his wife was in surgery.”
The moment the last stitched was done, Draco rushed to cuddle his favourite toy. O’Cain and her mom explained that they are more than willing to continue repairing the pillow until Draco outgrows his childhood plaything, if that day ever does come. “Bullies are the exact opposite of what people think. They stay babies forever!”
