This is Sunny.
Yes, he is sitting in a letterbox for no reason.
He is not mail.
He is a rescue dog.
When Sunny was a puppy, he made a friend.
It was a brick.
As he grew - things changed. His walks. The size of his feet. But one thing remained constant.
One day last week, Sunny's human Ariana thought she'd share a little detail about Sunny on Twitter.
"My dog's best friend is a brick," she wrote to her followers.
No one could deal.

How did Sunny make friends with the brick? What is the brick's name? What does the brick bring to the friendship?
Immediately, it became people's favourite friendship of all time, and everyone reacted a lil' bit like this:
Given the unprecedented interest in Sunny and/or his brick, Ariana shared a few more photos of him, as well as some background information.
Sunny is one year old and allegedly a very happy boy. The brick he has become friends with was placed there for the purpose of holding the carpet down but obviously also to be Sunny's friend. He apparently lies with it and kisses it sometimes.

Ariana promised she wouldn't let the fame get to Sunny's head, although, I don't know, he looks kinda arrogant here:
In response to Sunny's story, other humans started sharing the unlikely friendships their dogs have formed with household objects.

This pug only likes socks, nothing else and teases you if you don’t chase him for them pic.twitter.com/p665YCIj4l

If you think all this is silly, there's something wrong with you and you should get it checked out.
Or make friends with a brick maybe.
