Secret, Mary Peters’ Aussie, has been taught to do just about anything. This time, the task is to create a masterpiece.
This Australian shepherd seemed to be capable of anything! She can sing, dance, do laundry, and even do yoga poses such as the cobra raise, side twist, child’s pose, and single-leg downward dog. If you didn’t get a chance to meet her the first time around, this is your chance. Secret is back, the super-talented Aussie who’s ditching her yoga mat in favor of something a little messier.
Secret is seen approaching a blank, white canvas with a paintbrush in her mouth in this beautiful TikTok video released by Secret’s owner, Mary Peters, on July 18. The amazing video shows the canine effectively painting the entire canvas with blue paint, using her tongue to produce each stroke.
And, if that wasn’t stunning enough, the brilliant Australian then draws a lengthy stem using a separate paintbrush, this time laden with green paint. She then adds yellow to make the flowers. Secret then paints a red dot in the center of the yellow-painted petal region, followed by two green strokes that symbolize the stem’s leaves. Im-paw-ssible! You must indeed see it to believe it.
The beautiful video captioned “Secret’s first flower!” has received 85 million views and over 300,000 comments, including “Am I tripping or did I just watch a dog paint a flower?” and “When you realize Picasso is a dog.” We can only speculate on how long Peters spent training Secret to create such a masterpiece.
This isn’t the first time Secret has wowed a large audience. Mary began her journey in 2015 when she solicited Instagram followers for puppy training advice. Unaware of her impending celebrity, Mary continued to share images of her cute Aussie pet and their excursions on social media.
Mary is seen gardening with Secret in the most recent TikTok video. The lovely little paws of the smart Aussie can be seen digging, planting, and patting the ground. Mary offers her closest pal a doggy high five at the end of the video.
The link between Mary and Secret is undeniably strong. Secret was even trained as a service dog and accompanied Mary to her college classes last year since she was diagnosed with autism.
