This Dude Matching Durags With His Dog Is Iconic Beyond Belief

Blair Simon, a 19-year-old student from Houston, is exactly what the world needs in this time of hopelessness and despair.

Specifically, his adoring relationship with his “son” a doggo by the name of Hershie. Specifically, Simon matching his accessories with Hershie. Specifically, this image of Simon and Hershie in matching durags.

Simon breaks down Hershie’s chill disposition and their heartwarming connection to BuzzFeed News: “I’ve had him for seven years now. He is really chilled and very cool. He doesn’t really run around that much. I mean, when he sees someone he does, but he is usually chilled. He loves to lay down next to me.” Can’t say I blame him.

He goes on to add: “Sometimes I’ll be thinking about him, whatever I do to myself, I’ll do to him. So if I get a sweater, I’ll do my best and try to find him a similar sweater.”😭 😭 😭

Simon’s tweet captioned “What I get, he get” started to go viral, garnering almost 400,000 likes and 127,000 retweets in just a few days’ time. He told BuzzFeed News he was in total shock over the attention, stating “I can’t believe it. It’s such a random tweet. I wasn’t expecting this at all.”

“Hershie is my best friend. If you know me, you’ll know my dog is my twin. He even look like me sometimes.”

A few additional facts pertaining to Hershie in the form of a short poem:
