We. Do not. Deserve. Dogs.
They are the purest joy on the planet and what we’ve ever done to be worthy of their splendor is a mystery for the ages. But somehow, some way, here we are, on the Earth at the same time as them.
And the internet’s latest installment in the “Dogs are one of only two things that make being alive worthwhile, the other being cats” files is really overwhelming in its joy and “awwwwwww” factor.
So are you sitting down?
Ok. LOOK AT THIS DOG LOSING HER SHI* OVER HER NEW PUPPY FRIEND!!!!
So we got my dog a puppy today and this was her reaction… pic.twitter.com/bMwcywAuAv

I have a question: have you ever felt this happy in your entire beleaguered existence?
Look at Black Doggo!!!
She is so elated she can’t control her tail and her agency over all other physical faculties seems poised to collapse at any moment! Those tightly controlled zigs and zags of happiness seem like they could go full “oh god what are you doing” in the blink of an eye, like when white people dance at weddings.
THIS is what true happiness looks like.
Like okay sure, having an actual human child is probably great and all BUT IS IT THIS? Not for any parents I’ve ever met, who all seem one more lost hour of sleep away from total mental collapse.
THIS DOG HAS FOUND NIRVANA.
Granted, as someone pointed out, Pupper seems unsure about all this?
That pupper be like…

To be fair Black Doggo is bringing A LOT of energy.
But Pupper is new to the game, and also was probably just napping in that banker’s box cozy as… well, a puppy in a banker’s box. If you woke any of us up from a nap we’d probably be like “😐” too, no matter how happy you were.
But she’ll soon learn the path to joy. Black Doggo will teach her/him!
Anyway, Black Doggo’s Big Joy Energy was definitely contagious on the ol’ interwebs.
The dog was like “OMG OMG OMG ANOTHER DOG WE’RE GONNA HAVE SO MUCH FUN, WALKING IN THE PARK, PLAYING CATCH, EATING FOOD AND CUDDLES OMG OMG OMG I HAVE TO SHOW YOU MY TENNIS BALL! OUR OWNER IS SO MUCH FUN OMG OMG OMG I LOVE YOUUUUU!!!” Basically excited

Get someone in your life who is that happy to see you.

Even other doggos were like, “Oh wow yes wow oh my gosh my goodness wowee wow yeah that’s joy.”

You spelled ‘require’ wrong. Never seen it spelled W-A-N-T.

And thankfully, the owner obliged! Black Doggo and Pupper are already bffs!
Blown away by all the love this video is getting! Update: my black lab has since calmed down from the initial excitement and they are already best buds 🙂

Here’s wishing Black Doggo and Pupper a canine friendship for the ages. And may we all be inspired to find this kind of energy for our own lives, amen!
