When humans are clingy, it can be a bit uncomfortable. But when it's a dog that can't stand to be without his or her human, it's downright adorable.
This morning, 17-year-old Reddit user ConcerningTE posted this photo of her dog, Tingeling (apparently the Norwegian version of "Tinkerbell"), cuddling with her clothes while she was away from home for 2 weeks.
ConcerningTE wrote in the post, "My mom sent me this picture while I was away for some time. She found her in the bathroom sleeping in a pile of my clothes, sobbing while waiting for me to get home. I missed her a lot too while I was gone." She later specified that she meant whining instead of sobbing.
Other Redditors fell in love with the heart-sick pooch, and some even had similar stories of their own.

My mini dachshund was used to me being around constantly, because I worked from home for about 3 years straight. When I had to go away for 2 weeks on a work trip my wife reported that the dog was either frantic or depressed. I got on Skype and started calling in every few hours and the dog got better. My wife reported that the dog would go nuts hearing the Skype ring tone after that.
