When Mikaela first brought her newborn son Ted home, she had no idea that her dog Elvis would become more than just a furry companion. In a heartwarming video, Mikaela shares the story of how Elvis and Ted formed an unbreakable bond, turning her household into a fun and chaotic environment that she wouldn’t trade for anything.


From the moment Ted was born, Elvis was eager to meet his new baby brother. It was clear that Elvis wanted to be involved in all aspects of Ted’s life, from babysitting to nap time. Mikaela couldn’t help but be captivated by the adorable duo, finding it impossible to focus on anything else.

In the beginning, it was the little things that brought Elvis and Ted closer together. Ted quickly earned Elvis’s trust and loyalty by sharing his afternoon snacks with his furry sibling. Mikaela began to notice the special treatment that was taking place between the two, but she never could have anticipated just how close they would become.


As time passed, Elvis and Ted began to act more and more like each other. They came up with their own games, learned to speak the same language, and even started to bark at the neighbors together. The once peaceful living room was transformed into a playground filled with toys, laughter, and endless barking.

The days of Mikaela lounging on the couch were long gone, as it had now become the designated spot for Ted and Elvis to watch their favorite shows. It was then that Mikaela realized that Elvis had been preparing Ted all along to ‘become the perfect partner in crime.’ While she was initially blinded by the cuteness, Mikaela now embraces the chaos that comes with having two toddlers.


Today, Mikaela’s life revolves around the never-ending antics of Ted and Elvis. To make the most of the situation, Mikaela has devised a new plan to manage her household. As Ted grows older, Mikaela has turned household chores into entertaining games, allowing her some much-needed free time. However, she also knows that time flies by quickly, and cherishes the days when Ted and Elvis can play together without a care in the world.

The bond between Ted and Elvis is a testament to the power of love and friendship, transcending the boundaries between species. As they continue to grow and learn together, Mikaela can’t help but feel grateful for the unique relationship her son and dog share.
