Three-year-old Peyton and his dog, Dash rose to popularity after the boy’s mother posted a photo on January 27 of their pet keeping the toddler company during a time-out in their Sandusky, Ohio home.
Peyton and Dash are inseparable. When Peyton donned a Spiderman costume, Dash was by his side. After all, every superhero must have a trusty sidekick.
Dash isn’t just fond of Peyton – This furry favorite loves the entire family, including other dogs. Dash routinely spends time lounging in the living room with his multi-species family.
Dash is a faithful friend through good and bad times. When Peyton had to spend some quiet time in a corner for punishment, Dash refused to leave his side. Dash served time-out alongside his buddy Peyton.
Peyton’s mom, Jillian Marie Smith, thought the two were so cute that she snapped a quick picture of them during the time-out. She then posted the photo to Facebook with a caption that read, “When you’re in time-out but your best pal won’t let you serve your time alone.” The post clearly showed how irresistible Dash found his human companion.
Social media viewers couldn’t resist spending time with Peyton, either. Many readers responded with comments expressing their admiration for the pair. One such comment relayed the pain in Dash’s eyes and dubbed him Peyton’s “partner-in-crime”.
Other posts focused on the love readers felt with their own canine companions. Apparently, seeing these two friends together resurfaced some memories. One reader wrote of a special bond between their dog and a four-year-old grandchild.
