“He’s been with me every step of the way since I got him,” Cantu told The Dodo. “He helps me open doors and drawers, turn on/off lights, picks up things I drop, etc."

Toli loves to lend a paw. But on one special day recently, it was all about him.This week, Toli celebrated his 4th birthday — and Cantu found the perfect way to mark that happy occasion.

Rather than risk picking out a present that his dear pup might not prefer above all others, Cantu decided to take Toli straight to the source: the plaything aisle at a local pet store. There, the wagging-tailed Toli got to peruse his options, seeming to understand fully what the shopping trip was all about. 

Here's the adorable moment Toli found himself the perfect gift:

"This has kinda become a tradition on his birthday," Cantu said. "He loves taking naps and cuddling with his toys."

So, what exactly did Toli pick out for himself this time?
