Bereft Dog Anxiously Watches as Favorite Toy Undergoes 'Operation'

Erica Pieters’s dog, Bella, watched on intently as her owner performed vital “surgery” on the pooch’s favorite toy.

In a video posted to YouTube on October 9, Bella’s eyes can be seen fixed on the operation of sorts as Pieters, a resident of Den Helder in the Netherlands, mends a tear on one of the toy bunny’s arms.

“She loves her stuffed bunny,” Pieters told Storyful, and the keeshond “could not wait for it to be repaired.” Indeed, the video shows a relieved Bella grabbing the bunny in close as soon as the delicate operation is done. Credit: Erica Pieters via Storyful
