There’s no arguing that dogs are among the smartest animals on the planet, and a new video demonstrates that they do know their favorite words.
The video begins with a 5-year-old Dachshund named Rosie sitting on a bed, as posted on Instagram by user Rosieandmack. Her mother starts a phony phone call with all of Rosie’s favorite words, such as “grandma,” “treat,” “car ride,” and “walk,” as the dog twists her head back and forth, her face beaming. Words like “stick,” “chicken,” and “outside” elicit a response from her.
On TikTok, staging a phony phone conversation with your dog’s favorite words has become a viral craze. Because of its inherent attractiveness, this video received national recognition and nearly 4,000 likes.
“Oh, my my, that side-eye at’stick,'” one viewer commented. “Aww, she adores her grandmother,” one person wrote. A third offered, “This sweetie pie needs to get everything that was listed!” “This is the most amazing thing I’ve ever seen.” A fourth said, “Her ears and head tilts and side-eye…”
Rosie has a lot of interests, and her mother has gotten her all worked up for the sake of the cute video. Fortunately, as evidenced by her Instagram feed, this pooch is treated with all of her favorite things daily.
Another user commented on the video, “You can see the tiny gears in her head working while trying to understand the message.”
Rosie’s mother followed up with another video featuring one of Rosie’s favorite people: her grandmother. Rosie is cradled in her grandmother’s arms, receiving kisses and soaking up all of the love.
Another video of the two shows Rosie howling at her grandmother while lying down next to her. It’s evident they have a particular relationship, especially because she turned her head so much when she heard “grandma” during the phony phone call.
People all over TikTok are checking out what their dogs do when they say their favorite words as part of the fad. Do you know what your dog’s favorite words are? They’ll probably act the same way Rosie did when her mother manufactured the phony phone call with her items.
The heartwarming video has warmed people’s hearts all across the world, and it only goes to show how intelligent and perceptive our dogs can be.
