Dog Does The Sweetest Thing Whenever Family Leaves The House

“No matter if we're gone for five minutes or an hour she has always been drawn to our shoes to keep her company.”

Luna the bull terrier is happiest when she’s close to her family — like, really close.

And they are more than happy to lavish Luna with affection because they know the one thing she hates more than anything is being left alone.

But her dad, Justin Grosjean, wasn’t aware of just how much Luna depended on her family’s company until he came back from a trip to Home Depot last weekend.

Luna, thinking she had been abandoned, collected not one, not two, but four of her parents’ shoes and brought them to her bed for comfort. When Grosjean walked in, he snapped a photo of the hilarious sight.

“My wife and kids were out of town and I went to Home Depot for 30 minutes and came home to this,” Grosjean wrote on Reddit. “I think she panicked and thought we all left. Broke my heart."

Grosjean and his wife adopted Luna in 2015 shortly after their wedding, and it didn’t take long for the little dog to establish herself as the baby of the house. “She was just a pup and truly our fur baby from day one,” Grosjean said.

Luna’s shoe fixation started as a chewing habit soon after joining the Grosjean family, and the pup has since developed quite a collection, Grosjean noted.

“No matter if we're gone for five minutes or an hour she has always been drawn to our shoes to keep her company,” Grosjean added. “We think they smell like us and keeps her feeling close to us, and after all she's been through we don't really mind — she can have 'em!”

Her family is more than happy to oblige when it comes to lending Luna a smelly shoe now and then — especially since Luna no longer sees fit to make a meal of them.

Now, three years later, Luna has two human siblings. But instead of being jealous, for Luna, when it comes to family — the more the merrier.

“[She is] equal parts lazy cuddler and giant comedic goofball,” Grosjean added. “She keeps us laughing and is just as much a part of our family as our kids!”

“She is happiest to see us all together and happy,” Grosjean said. “She's so gentle and tolerant with our babies [and] we are so blessed to have her in our family.”
