For this adorable dog nothing compares to her stuffed banana.
Welcome Tessa, a 20 year old terrier mix who has always been very attentive to her charges.
Her parents, mother, and other neighbors are great, but nothing beats her stuffed bananas.
Tessa adores him, and although it is not alive, it is her pride and joy.
Tessa’s adoptive mother, Shanna Lauren, says she bought a banana five years ago when a stray dog damaged Tessa’s favorite toy.
“I noticed it in a basket at a nearby store,” she told us, “but I knew it was the toy she liked.”
Tessa is so pleased with her toy that she enjoys showing it to visitors.
“We encourage people to tell her they spotted her banana so she can lie down,” she says, adding that she won’t give up until she gets her way.
