Doodlebug lives in New South Wales and is cared for by Gillian Abbott, the mother of Tim Beshara, who shared the photo yesterday. "Showing the value of a good hug, especially for an orphaned wallaby," Beshara wrote, although Doodlebug is actually an eastern grey kangaroo and not a wallaby. Regardless of his species, however, this much is true: Doodlebug is adorable. Hang in there, little guy. Everything's going to be okay.
