Scarlett, a little girl, has discovered the key to a restful night’s sleep: her 99-pound rescue pit bull.
Four years ago, the Geiger family got Lebowski from Priceless Pet Rescue, and Scarlett felt an instant bond with the puppy.
“Scarlett met Lebowski when she was four and he was ten weeks,” Scarlett’s mother, Jennifer Geiger, told The Dodo. “She was completely taken by his adorable face and adored her pet!” “I’d say they both liked each other right away.”
Lebowski began following his older sister everywhere and imitating her actions. She dressed up the puppy, invited her to tea parties, and watched her do her homework.
“Since we first got him home, Lebowski has snuggled up to nap near Scar,” Geiger added. “They’ve passed asleep on the couch numerous times together.”
Around the age of eight months, Lebowski began to vanish at night. “There were occasions when I’d wake up in the middle of the night and couldn’t find him,” Geiger explained.
Geiger eventually discovered Lebowski lurking under Scarlett’s bed, “like a monster.”
Then one night, when Geiger entered Scarlett’s room, he discovered Lebowski dozing alongside her. Geiger added, “He made himself at home by her side and hasn’t stopped since.”
Scarlett and Lebowski are still sharing her twin bed years later. “Wherever they sleep in this house, it’s always together and that’s all that counts to them,” Geiger said on Instagram.
Now all that remains is for Lebowski to find his way to Scarlett’s room – assuming she isn’t at a sleepover. “When we say ‘go to bed,’ he rushes over to Scar and snuggles up,” Geiger explained. “It’s the most adorable thing.”
“When they’re not together, he keeps a tight check on his girl and mopes around,” she added. “Their friendship is quite special, and we consider ourselves fortunate to be able to see their love as they grow and experience life together.”
