There’s a lot of things to do in Skyrim, from dragon killing to creature killing to bandit killing. But one player, Twitter user Patrick Lenton, decided to take a break from all of that to adopt a dog.
Of course, with dogs, being dogs, it wasn’t long before the little guy decided to join in on the adventures. That’s when things got a little complicated for our roaming adventurer.

But of course, the housing market in Skyrim is completely violent and full of things that are all ready to jump you the second you turn your back.
You’d think that’s where the story ends, right? Yeah, no, there’s yet another hurdle.

And wouldn’t you know it, Lenton winds up with another dog for his troubles, because of course.
This can’t be what Bethesda had in mind when they made this game…right?
Blah blah, middle middle, middle…
