Consider: kid sabo with a therapy dog, recovering from the explosion. It's really playful and has big brown eyes and messy black fur and he cant help but think that it reminds him of somebody...
YOOOO. YES. i actually doodled
bad pics of a headcanon about sabo bonding with a puppy after joining the revolutionary army and growing up with it ages ago so this could be an addendum to that- the pup is also a therapy dog!!
and awww gosH the second i responded to the other ask and said i thought sabo would like dogs my immediate thought was “….because they’d totally remind him of ace and especially luffy” and it’s TRUE like!! sabo rolling around with the puppy in the dirt and just having this notion, this feeling that he’s done this before, with somebody else….
also, sabo later telling luffy about this like “bro…my dog totally reminded me of you, you two are so alike” and the straw hats being like ???? did he just compare luffy to his dog isn’t that kind of an insult but of course he didn’t mean it as one and luffy didn’t take it as one and luffy LOVES the pup
