An Alaskan toddler now uses her family's 100-pound Pitbull as her security blanket following a large earthquake and thousands of aftershocks. The girl's father, Kyle Leary, caught his daughter Adalynn on a video monitor tucking the dog into her little toddler bed for the night.
The Daily Mail shared the sweet story of the Leary family and their dog, Fury, in an Alaskan town which has become all too familiar with earthquakes. Adalynn Leary sleeps in a toddler bed which generally has room for one toddler and perhaps a stuffed bear, but to quell her anxiety, she tucks in with Fury, making sure that her "fur baby" has plenty of blankets to sleep for the night.
Kyle Leary says that after the 7.0 earthquake hit their home, little Adalynn refused to sleep without her "best friend and body guard" Fury. Following the initial quake, to date they have lived through 5,000 aftershocks, leaving the little one stressed.
"The only way she'll sleep is if Fury is in there with her to protect and ease her anxiety. Normally he sleeps on the floor next to her bed but that night she called him up to cuddle him."
