And, y'know, that actually means a lot considering the fact that I spend 80% of my time on the internet looking for cute/hilarious/gross/shocking videos involving anything from dogs to three-eyed fish to cute little old ladies who are able to do 1000 push-ups under a minute... you get the gist I'm sure.
ANYWAY, a clip has recently gone viral and it involves two all-time favorite things: a cute dog and something bizarre happening. Basically, the footage shows a pretty mundane scene at first - a guy is walking with his dog, they come to a busy road, they stop... BUT THEN, unexpectedly, the dog gets up on its hind legs, grabs its owners hand and walks across the road LIKE A HUMAN.
It. is. AMAZING. But hey, don't take my word for it... scroll down and see it for yourself!
A clip has gone viral which shows an absolutely precious dog portraying very sensible road crossing skills, holding his human papa’s hand as he trots along like a tiny fluffy person.
The footage itself was actually captured by an American journalist named Natalie Compton (Thank YOU Natalie Compton), who’d journeyed to all the way to Nepal in order to hike up to Everest Base Camp.
Compton then shared the clip on Twitter (because that's where viral videos are born), with the extremely understandable caption:
Simple, yet honest. And believe me, when I say that I wasn't the only person whose life was filled with joy after witnessing it. The internet completely melted over the sheer cuteness/weirdness of the whole situation, with one person making the comment that it was obviously some kind of 'dog sorcery'. Another then suggest that the tiny little guy was actually a human who had been lucky enough to be transformed into a dog. And I gotta tell you - I 100% believe that he is right.
See the original video for yourself below!:
DO YOU SEE WHAT I MEAN NOW? So, so amazing.
And the bemusement, bewilderment and sheer and utter shock of comments kept rolling in. I chose a few of my favorites for you, because I truly feel these on a more spiritual level:
Like I said, 100% agree with them all. If I could find a way to make it my moving wallpaper for the rest of my life, I would. Genuinely cannot stop watching this clever little superstar and his supreme road crossing expertise! It's sweet and surprising moments like this that life is all about really, isn't it?
Anyway, the whole ordeal made me curious; are all dogs capable of walking on their hind legs? Have any others been made famous for being caught off guard in such a funny way? So, I did a little digging, and boy oh boy am I not disappointed by what I found!
Just CHECK OUT THIS ADORABLE CREATURE!
(Footage courtousey of The Dodo)
However, on further inspection... as cute as this video it... the reason behind this adorable little creature jumping around on her hind legs is NOT cute whatsoever. So, in retrospect, maybe it's best not to see more dogs walking around on just two legs like us humans... no matter how amazing it may be to see.
Still, at least the pup in the original video looks like he's doing it on his own accord and only when he has to cross over a busy road with his owner... if you see this in any other situation however, be wary... and possibly report it to the authorities!
