This massive furball being carried everywhere in these pictures might look like a huge teddy bear but it is in fact a pet dog that is inseparable from its loving owner.
The dog’s owner, Cliff Brush Jr., has been sharing images of a road trip he is taking with his Goldendoodle and he has no hesitation in picking up the 80-lb hound or carrying on his back even when on his cycle.
The pair are originally from Boca Raton in the southern US state of Florida where he worked in corporate affairs for six years as an accountant, a business consultant and a budget analyst, before giving it all up last year in order to become a full-time content creator.
His partner in the adventure is Brodie, a two-and-a-half-year-old Goldendoodle and in an exclusive interview with Newsflash, Cliff said they were the best of friends.
He said: “We do everything together. We travel the country, ride bikes, boats, helicopters and are up for anything thrown our way!
“He weighs 80 lbs and his mother is my dog as well, she birthed him!”
The travels can sometimes be a bit more of a challenge than might otherwise be expected as Brodie tends to be rather nervous of a large number of things, including “metal floors, escalators, empty plastic bags, vacuum cleaners”, according to Cliff.
In one of the videos, Brodie was featuring at a “Mutts to Models” charity event and Cliff said: “Brodie made his runway debut and loved every second of it”.
Asked about whether they took any risks, he said that Brodie’s safety was his priority and that he tried not to take too many risks. But when it came to the most terrifying thing – it was definitely flying in a helicopter over Bryce Canyon National Park in Utah.
He said: “I hate flying in small aircraft.”
The owner and pet went viral after a video showed him scared of going over a drain, which also bought loads of new followers.
Cliff said: “Brodie was famous before that video with over two million followers on TikTok. But after I posted that video, it really brought in a ton of new followers, or ‘Bromies’ as we call them, especially internationally!”
