I hope we'll all be as happy as this dog when the election is over.

Me too.

Dogs have many, many virtues - but I never quite thought that they have a sense of humor.
This dog looks for all the world like he actually gets the joke.

I love how she just drops the original toy unthinkingly. I also love the slow approach where you can see her brain-cogs turning. And I also also love her friend doggie who is clearly pleased that everyone's happy and on the floor but doesn't entirely get what is so amazing. I love the whole thing!!!

I love the slowwww rise up from her seat. This is like the golden retriever equivalent of the scene in Jurassic Park when Laura Dern sees a brontosaurus for the first time.

Golden Retrievers are such complete silly sweethearts.
(somewhat biased, grew up with one who was just utterly and completely sweethearted and also silly)

note: all dogs are THE BEST DOG.

I tweeted the following when I first saw this video:

OTHER DOG: You are so weird.

Not only her favorite toy, but her favorite toy + smells like her Human. We had a wonderful shelter dog who looked a lot like Jolene, our beloved Jake, who has been gone for some time. Dogs are the *best*.

As of right now 557 people have given this video a thumbs down on YouTube.

I'm a pretty cynical person when it comes to animals. I don't like when people anthropomorphize them or attribute emotions to them that I feel they don't possess. But even I am not so goddamn terrible to think this is anything less than the greatest damn doggie video ever.

Wookit da puppy go for the great big Gumby!

I think he's still lying on the floor, because that dog clearly stepped on his crotch at least 5 or 6 times.

I watched this at least twenty times yesterday and plan to maintain that regimen at least through Nov. 8th.

Can confirm. Source: got punched in the crotch by a clumsy 65lb greyhound earlier today.

Also, Mrs. Example and I have always said that if we ever get a dog, it'd be a golden retriever like this or a yellow lab, because we want a dog like us: big, blond, and kinda goofy.

So relatable. It's that feeling everyone has had at least once of their dream totally coming true. "This? For me?! It's real?!"

Somewhere I have a picture of the eighteen-month-old daughter of a friend (this daughter/this friend) taken when she won the Easter draw for a giant chocolate Easter bunny at a local bank. She is standing, hands clasped and slackjawed, standing next to this bunny about two inches taller than her. She is looking past the camera at her mom as if to say, "you're seeing this too, right?"

It is the same expression.

Love it. I love my mini beagle but he's rotten sometimes, his newest tactic is spilling food bowl into other dogs eating area AND common area. (Water bowl)
And he can get away with it if not reminded. The bigger dog will not eat or drink until the situation is resolved. He's done this like 6 times in the last year.

If you look carefully, you can see a narrow ridge of hair sticking straight up running down the dog's back.

It is as though the dog is saying "I think that's him--but it also looks like some kind of horrible monster. He's always playing tricks like this so I'll keep my guard up and walk over carefully and give a smell."

Then after the smell "It is you! Oh you!! You scared me to death. Thank goodness it is you. I am so happy!"

dogs are the best

My cat watched that video and her remarks translated to "dogs -- pathetic former predators, or REALLY pathetic former predators? pffffft. Where's my breakfast?"

Then she read your comment and spit out "best at what, being stupid?"

Just saying. Cats are the best. No one is coercing me to say this. I am writing of my own free will.

And that, my friend, is why I will never own a cat. No offense to the kittehs. Merely not my thing.

This is the best thing ever. Two random thoughts:

1. The dog's reaction is exactly the same as my cousins reaction when someone rented a Mickey Mouse costume to wear to his second birthday party. Apparently his favourite show had guy-in-a-Mickey-Mouse-costume, and when Mickey Mouse walked in, he just couldn't even believe it.

2. If this guy never wears the costume again, that dog will eventually convince himself that he dreamed this whole thing.
