PIERRE PART, Louisiana– A woman shared on her Facebook page an adorable video of a little boy stopping at her Louisiana home to hug her dog.

Hollie Mallet posted:

“Attn Neighbors! Anyone know who this sweet little boy is? Every now and then when he rides his bike he will quickly come and love on my dog or play fetch real quick, but always leaves quick like he doesn’t know if he should be here! I’d like to tell him he’s welcome to stay and play, she loves the attention!”

The child turned out to be a little boy named Josh; his mom, Ginger Clement Breaux, told Hollie,

“Josh talks about your dog all the time! Every time we pass he looks to see if she was sitting where he could see her. Just didn’t know he was doing things like this. 🙈
Last night when I first saw it, I was torn as a momma being happy and upset because he knows he shouldn’t be on someone’s property, but I wake up this morning more happy that he just absolutely adores dogs so much.”

Ginger said their family had a dog, Bella, who passed away last year.  Hollie told Ginger that Josh is welcome to come visit their black Labrador, Dutchess, any time.
