This video of a puppy talking in its sleep is so adorable – we just wish we knew what the little Shiba Inu was saying.
We’re going to bookmark the cute clip from 2009 – it’s getting attention this week thanks to a repost by The Pet Collective – because it’s the perfect pick-me-up for a bad day.
There’s just something so sweet about the way the pup tilts its head back and issues a high-pitched puppy call-out, and it’s made even more heart-warming by the fact that the pup is lying on its back in its owner’s lap, alongside a doll in an animal costume.
The video gets extra points for the reaction it got out of this writer’s two sleeping dogs – they woke up, pricked up their ears and walked toward the computer, so clearly they understood what the pup was saying.
Try playing it for your four-legged friends and let us know in the comments section if it got the same response.
