Heartwarming film depicts an enduring connection formed when a lovely dog took an instant like to his human baby sibling.
Whitney Parks, 37, of Boston, stated that her one-year-old Golden Retriever Hinckley, who was mistaken for baby Theodore, due in October 2020, was brought home as a new toy for him to play with.
Hinckley immediately became Theodore’s constant friend, napping, snuggling, and eating together after realizing Theodore was here to stay.
Hinckley, a one-year-old Golden Retriever, has formed an unbreakable bond with Boston’s newborn Theodore Parks (shown).
Whitney, 37, stated that Hinckley, who had been the center of attention for years, originally assumed Theodore was brought home as a new toy for him to play with. Theodore is shown with his father, Rob, and Hinckley.
Whitney claimed that the first several nights after Theodore was brought home, Hinckley would keep watch over him while he slept (shown).
Whitney, who works in communications, noted that Hinckley wants to be involved in everything Theodore does, indicating that dogs are indeed man’s best friend.
‘When we initially brought Teddy home, Hinckley believed we had brought him a new toy specifically for him,’ Whitney explained. I can understand why he believed so after being the focus of our universe for a year.
‘Those first several nights, Hinckley would watch over Teddy from our bed while he slept in his cradle, just watching his every move in amazement.
‘After a few days, Hinckley discovered the “toy” wasn’t his and wasn’t going away. But, from the moment Teddy arrived at the house, Hinckley became obsessed with him and demanded to be there at all of Teddy’s activities.
‘During tummy time, Teddy and Hinckley like to snuggle on the couch or on the floor.
Hinckley took a few days to realize Theodore wasn’t going anywhere, according to Whitney. Hinckley and Baby Theodore are shown.

‘Hinckley attends each feeding. Teddy is usually on my left, and Hinckley is on my right; it’s a lovely time for the three of us to bond and snuggle.
‘Sometimes, when Teddy has finished his bottle, and I’m not paying attention, Hinckley will discreetly walk away with Teddy’s nasty burp towel, and I can’t help but laugh.’
Whitney is happy that Theodore will grow up with a four-pawed older brother to protect him.
During feeds, Whitney said, Theodore is normally on her left and Hinckley is on her right since it’s a unique time for them to bond. Hinckley and Baby Theodore are shown.

‘My heart melts watching the two of them together, it’s evident that Hinckley is taking on the role of big brother looking out for the wellbeing of his smaller sister,’ Whitney added. I can’t get enough of it.
‘Right now, Hinckley is unsure what Teddy is, but he knows he is important and must keep an eye out for him.
‘I’m looking forward to the day when Teddy and Hinckley can engage more and become great buddies who go on infinite adventures.’
