Hilarious Grumpy Puppy Scares the Internet – ‘My Soul Left My Body’
Dogs can get moody for a variety of reasons.
Boredom, lack of sleep, exhaustion or a general lack of attention are just some of the factors that can lead to a cranky dog.
However, it was a slightly different story for Savannah Sylvester’s puppy, Cash.
A Pekingese Chihuahua mix, the little pup has been getting a lot of attention on TikTok after Sylvester shared a hilarious video of her dog reacting badly to crowds.
In the video, Cash can be seen lying on his owner’s carpet, bathed in the sun, soaking up the rays. Unfortunately, his peace is soon disturbed by the loving Sylvester who interrupts his dozing to shower him with affection.
“Oh look at this handsome bobansome tanning in the sun today!” hears them say on the clip. “Sunday morning, sunday sun, love you more than words, sir!”
But while her comments are meant to be affection, it seems Cash feels anything but love when his chill time is interrupted this way.
As the images show, Sylvester changes his expression from neutrality to pure rage as Sylvester continues to gushed over her doggy.
Like a burning fuse, it seems only a matter of time before Cash explodes. That moment comes as the clip ends with the dog barking at Sylvester in a way that says “go away” or possibly something stronger. The video can be viewed here.
The incident might have been even more menacing were it not for the fact that Cash is so small and cute. Regardless, the clip has proved so popular, with over 11.6 million views on social media and thousands of comments from animal lovers, many of whom admit they were petrified by the little dog’s antics.
“I jumped so hard,” wrote Itzyourbaetae, and banned.mrs.clean noted, “My soul left my body.” Picklesbutdil admitted, “I know there was a jump scare, but I jumped anyway.”
Elsewhere, KirstyMacDonald555 was critical of Cash’s response. “Why are all dogs so angry?” she asked. Eager to stand up for the little dog, Abigail Freeman replied, “Because they’re small, people think they can ignore their body language and personal space.”
Ash62686 fully agrees with Cash’s response. “My reaction when I’m sunbathing on the beach and strangers try to talk to me,” they wrote.
news week has contacted Sylvester for comment.
According to the experts at Falconbridge Animal Hospital, dog owners should never assume that their dog is moody because of a behavior problem.
“Before assuming your dog is feisty because of a behavior problem, see your vet,” they recommend. “Some painful conditions can lower a dog’s threshold for aggression, leaving your dog more on edge than he normally would be.”
“Also, keep in mind that sometimes aggressive behavior can be triggered by systemic conditions, such as hypothyroidism,” she added.
Grumpy dogs remain a constant source of entertainment online with recent highlights including a Golden Retriever with a menacing look and a dog who hates mornings.
