As one mother learned, it doesn't count as an empty nest when you have a pet to fill it.
Maddie, a freshman at Texas A&M University, went off to college, leaving her 1-year-old puppy Nina behind at home for her mother to take care of. Instead, her mom Rosie re-decorated her entire bedroom into a room for Nina.
"I'm in college for not even a month & my mom rearranges my entire room just for my dog," she wrote in a post that has since gone viral on Twitter. She shared screenshotted images of a text conversation in which her mom broke the news — complete with photos of her dog sitting on the bed in "Nina's new room."
