Who was the best boy?

A heartfelt obituary written by a South Carolina woman about her golden retriever’s adorable “little quirks” fetched tens of thousands of likes when it went viral on Twitter Thursday.

Sallie Gregory Hammett, 30, wrote the tribute to her dog, Charlie, who died this month at age 7 after a battle with lymphoma —  describing him as a peanut butter-and-banana chowing, boyfriend-material-testing, fiercely loyal force of “unconditional love.”

“If we’re being honest, Charlie loved everything life had to offer,” reads the obituary, which has since raked in 100,000 likes. “He was good at lot of things, but he was best at unconditional love. He taught everyone he met about loving people and always seeing the good in everyone.”

Hammett took home Charlie as an 8-week-old puppy and the two quickly became inseparable.

When she met her now-husband, David, Charlie’s affectionate response to him was an early deciding factor that he was a good guy, and worth dating.

“[David] loved him as much as I did, which I didn’t think was possible,” Hammett told CNN, adding that the couple adored the pup’s eccentricities.

“When you put the peanut butter on the banana, I mean you would think it was just the best day of his life,” she said.
