When McKenna adopted a pug puppy, she was looking for a companion and a loving pet. She brought Violet home, to the dismay of her dad, and was ready to spend some quality time with the pupper.
"My dad was very not on board with getting a dog. It took about a week for him to fully accept," McKenna told The Dodo.
However, as time went on, McKenna's dad developed an unbreakable bond with Violet.
"There's something about my dad that my dog loves more than the rest of us," McKenna said. "So when he saw that he was her favorite, they became BFFs."
Violet and Dad were practically inseparable, with the puppy even sleeping in Mom and Dad's bed every night. Otherwise, she had trouble sleeping all together. Mom has never really had an issue with it, until a stinky problem caused her to put her foot down.
Violet had to undergo a routine surgery, but because of her stitches and bandages, she can't be bathed until everything has healed. She's gotten a little smelly, and that's where mom draws the line. Violet is no longer allowed in the bed.
"So, she's just super stinky at the moment and my mom just cleaned her sheets," McKenna said.
Instead of spending a night without his cuddle buddy, Dad decided if Violet wasn't sleeping in the bed, neither was he.
"They were just going to bed right then," McKenna said. "I thought it was funny that he went that far, but at the same time, it was sweet. [Mom] was laughing too."
Violet's stitches will be removed within the next week, which means she'll likely get her sleeping spot back in no time. Until then, Dad will be sleeping wherever Violet does.
"I'm glad he loves her as much as he does, because it's way better than when he didn't like her," McKenna said. "Since then, she's pretty much the best thing to ever happen in his eyes."
