The three-year-old Dachshund hasn’t gone anywhere without his beloved ‘nug nug’ since Santa delivered it at Christmas and even takes it to bed with him.

It came in a set which also contained a burger and chips, but when the adorable doggo realized he couldn’t carry all three at once, he chose the chicken drumstick as his number one.

Pickle’s owner Rebekah Taylor decided it was time the toy was given a good clean, and distracted him with treats in the garden so she could sneak nug nug into the wash.
