Happy Friday! It’s almost the weekend, and we know those last few hours of the work week can seem awfully loooooong. So to help pass the time, why not set your eyeballs on some major cuteness? Our hearts are melting over this video of a dog napping alongside his stuffed animal twin. It kind of makes us feel better knowing that while we’re sitting at our desks, somewhere in the world, this is happening:

If Marutaro the dog looks familiar, it’s probably because he’s one of the most famous dogs on Instagram. His followers tip the scales at 2.3 million. To put things in perspective, that’s more people than the population of the entire state of New Mexico. NBD. Marutaro is a Shiba Inu  and according to his web site (of course he has one, duh), he loves apples and his least favorite things are thunder and fireworks. We don’t blame you, Marutaro. Those are very scary things. Marutaro lives in Japan, where Shiba Inus reign supreme as the most popular dog breed (because ADORABLE) and where he apparently spends quite a bit of time hanging out with his stuffed animal bestie. Awwwww.  

Look at this. Just look at it.

Marutaro’s website also says his special talent is howling, which he shows off in the video below. His stuffed animal is right beside him (because of course he is).  

We just love the way these two are redefining #twinning.

Heart eyes forever.
