There’s nothing cuter than a dog’s love for their owner and this story truly takes the cake. This little guy is totally terrified of bath time. In fact, he’s so afraid that he’s naturally assumed that his owners are both scared too. At first he would completely avoid the tub and he expected his owners to do the same, however, it wasn’t a reasonable option. Naturally, the dog assumed that the owners needed some moral support when getting into the tub. When you see what he does to cheer her up your heart won’t be able to take it!
20. The Owners
Meet 24-year-old Rebecca Weaver and her fiancé Sage. The couple lives in Rochester, New York with their adorable miniature Goldendoodle, Clark. While their dog may be adorable he also is very caring in the cutest way. You won’t believe what he does to “protect” his owners…
Clark is a super cute and super sweet and considerate dog. Rebecca and Sage absolutely adore him. In most photos of him, you’ll see him with a green plastic toy. The toy serves as a comfort item especially against his biggest fear ever…
18. The Tub

You see Clark has one huge fear: the bathtub. Since the couple has moved into their new home with a tub they’ve noticed that Clark is absolutely terrified of it. Their old apartment only had a shower and they never seemed to have a problem with it. Now things have changed with their move and the sudden appearance of a tub.

The couple instantly noticed that Clark was not reacting kindly to the new home addition. “The bathtub is the bane of his existence,” Rebecca told The Dodo. “He hates baths. He even hates when we’re in the bath because he hates getting the water on him,” she explained. The couple quickly grew concerned about the dog’s reaction to the tub.
16. Bathtub Troubles
Since Clark is so terrified of the bathtub himself he also assumes that the tub must be frightening to everyone else. So whenever Rebecca or Sage happen to get into the tub, Clark follows them in and does the most surprising thing.

“It was scary the first time I saw him behind me because I wasn’t expecting him to be just standing there looking at me,” she said. “He just looked so concerned, then he would walk away and bring you his green toy. Then he would drop it in the tub and get all excited.”
Rebecca didn’t quite understand what to make of the entire situation in the beginning.

At first Rebecca just assumed that Clark wanted to play fetch with his toy. After all, what other reason would he have for bringing it over to the bathtub? However, when Rebecca tried to toss the toy to play fetch Clark got incredibly offended. Then she began to realize what was going on…

It was then that Rebecca realized that Clark was bringing over his green toy to be a source of comfort to her and Sage whenever they would be bathing. “He’s been giving us his toy since we moved into our new house that has a bathtub in it in July. Where we used to live only had a shower,” Rebecca said.
12. Not Playing
“Of course, when he would first do it we thought he just wanted to play but that clearly wasn’t the case because if you throw it he gets visibly upset and doesn’t chase it, he just wants you to keep it until the shower is over,” Rebecca explained. However, Rebecca never expected this to turn into a routine with her and Clark.
11. Always There
Now Clark makes it a routine to show up anytime one of them hops into the bath. He makes sure to come prepared with his green toy in his mouth. “He wants to save us from the bath,” Rebecca joked. “He stays for a good five minutes. This is the torture part for him and he’s super upset and sad.”
10. So Sweet
“He wanders off and returns after a few seconds with his green toy and plops it in the tub, to which he immediately cheers up!” Rebecca said. “It’s all he has to give and he does it every time. He is so sweet.”
However, just the fact that Clark drops off the toy in the tub isn’t special enough. In fact, you’ll be blown away when you find out just how special this act is when you find out what the toy means to Clark.
9. Super Special
The part that makes this even more special is the fact that Clark refuses to share his green toy in any other scenario. He refuses to give it up for anything, but he really wants to save his owners from the nightmare of the tub. And while his fear of the tub may be a bit overblown, Rebecca still admires his efforts.
8. Sweetest Dog
“He’s always been the sweetest dog. He’s literally the nicest dog I’ve ever met,” Rebecca said. “I’m not just saying that because he’s our dog either. He’s literally never growled at anyone.” Because of how sweet Clark is, Rebecca decided that she had to show him off for everyone to admire.
Since the occurrence would continue to happen on a regular basis, Rebecca decided to document it by taking some photos of Clark doing what he does best. She took photos of him with the green toy in his mouth as he plops it into the tub. She thought it was absolutely adorable and knew that she had to do something about it.
After taking all of the photos of Clark near the tub, Rebecca decided that she couldn’t keep the cuteness all to herself. She hopped onto Twitter and shared a post about Clark and how he runs to her rescue every time she gets into the tub. The post instantly went viral…
5. Sad Face
“His sad face is so sad looking, so I was like, ‘They need to see it.’ I was really excited because you could see what we’re seeing every day,” she said. Weaver’s post began to gain traction by getting over 650,000 likes and 200,000 retweets. She never expected such a reaction from the online community.
4. Viral Post
“At first it got to 1,000 likes. I was like ‘Oh my God, I can’t believe it’s at 1,000 likes, that’s insane.’ Then it went to 100,000 and then it went to 500,000,” she said. Everyone on social media fell in love with Clark and his story instantly. The outpouring of love and positive comments was almost overwhelming…
“I thought it was crazy that the tweet went viral but I’m so glad it did. Clark makes us so happy and I’m so in awe of the joy he’s brought other people,” she said. “I can’t believe the joy he’s bringing other people and I’m so glad he is because he’s such a sweet dog.”
2. Sweet Commentary
There were a lot of sweet comments left on Rebecca’s post about Clark. Some of them included comments such as, “He deserves the world.” Others said, “What did we do to deserve such compassionate creatures I’m literally crying.” Everyone adored just how loving and selfless Clark was and how brave he was to stand near the tub in order to be of moral support to his owners.
1. Brave Pup
Dogs can be so loving and caring it’s really no wonder that they’re often called “man’s best friend.” Clark has truly shown how much of a caring and compassionate dog he is. If that’s not a story worth sharing then we don’t know what is!
