Hilarious grumpy pup terrifies the internet: ‘My soul left my body’
Dogs can get grumpy for a number of reasons.
Boredom, lack of sleep, exhaustion or a general lack of attention are just some of the factors that can lead to a grumpy dog.
However, it was a slightly different story for Savannah Sylvester’s pup, Cash.
A Pekingese Chihuahua mix, the pint-sized pup got a lot of attention on TikTok after Sylvester shared a hilarious video of his dog reacting badly to being hampered by her.
In the video, Cash can be seen lying on his owner’s rug, bathed in the sun, soaking up the rays. Unfortunately, his peace is soon disturbed by the passionate Sylvester who interrupts his sleep to shower him with affection.
“Oh look at this handsome bobansome sunbathing today!” we hear it said on the clip. “Sunday morning, Sunday tan, I love you more than words, sir!”
But while his remarks are meant as terms of endearment, it seems Cash feels more than love at having his downtime interrupted in this way.
As the footage shows, as Sylvester continues to gush over his pooch, his expression changes from neutral to pure anger.
Like a blown fuse, it appears only a matter of time before Cash explodes. This moment comes as the clip ends with the pet dog shown barking at Sylvester in a way that says “go away” or maybe something a little louder. The video can be viewed here.
The incident could have been more threatening if it hadn’t been for the fact that Cash was so small and cute. Either way, the clip has proven so popular, amassing over 11.6 million views on social media as well as thousands of comments from pet lovers, many of whom admit to feeling petrified by the antics. of the little dog.
“I jumped so hard,” Itzyourbaetae wrote and banned. Ms Clean commented: “My soul left my body.” Picklesbutdil admitted: “I know there was a jumpscare but I jumped anyway.”
Elsewhere, KirstyMacDonald555 criticized Cash’s response. “Why are all the dogs like that so angry? ” she asked. Eager to defend the little dog, Abigail Freeman replied: “Because they are small people think they can ignore their body language and personal space.”
Ash62686 could totally relate to Cash’s answer. “My reaction when I’m at the beach sunbathing and strangers try to talk to me,” they wrote.
Newsweek contacted Sylvester for comment.
According to experts at Falconbridge Animal Hospital, dog owners should never assume their dog is grumpy because of a behavioral problem.
“Before you assume your dog is sizzling because of a behavior problem, stop by your veterinarian,” they recommend. “Certain painful conditions can lower a dog’s aggression threshold, making your pooch more nervous than he normally would be.”
“Also consider that sometimes aggressive behavior can be triggered by systemic disorders, such as hypothyroidism,” they added.
Grumpy dogs remain a constant source of online entertainment with recent highlights including a Golden Retriever with a menacing look and a dog that hates mornings.
