In many ways, dogs and humans are similar. That is true, as any dog lover or owner will attest. This popular TikTok also demonstrates how accurate that assertion is. Introverts, extroverts, and people in the middle are all there are. Even these shy canines would concur that social gatherings can be draining for those who are not into them. So the timid dogs just had no idea how to act when a group of Swedish dog owners came together and brought their pets to a park. They were also really adorable.
Fortunately, the cute moment was caught on camera so that everyone can see it. One of the present owners, Sofia Rosten, published the humorous video on her dog’s TikTok account. Qila, her rescue dog, is already well-known! The event was planned by a canine psychologist to assist the owners’ shy dogs in making new friends. Fair enough, it sounded like a solid plan. The meeting took place for nearly an hour, according to Rosten, and at first, the dogs seemed to be having a wonderful time. But because these four-legged furry creatures are like us humans, their social reserves soon ran out.
The scenario started to become problematic for everyone when the unfortunate dogs were a little too overwhelmed by the crowd. The dogs just stopped what they were doing, remaining sedate and making an effort to avoid making eye contact. It almost seems as though they were anticipating being taken home by their owners. Like they had lost interest in being there. Rosten grabbed her phone right away, videotaped the action, and then uploaded it to Qila’s Instagram and TikTok accounts. It was an opportunity too excellent to miss.
We all thought it looked hilarious and because it was almost the end of the conference, she taped it. In the video’s accompanying text, Rosten continued, “It’s like a meadow of cows.” As of this writing, the trending video has 4.4 million likes on TikTok. Just observe how the dogs appear to be asking, “Are we done yet? ” And other introverts will undoubtedly recognize this experience. They don’t want to ruin the fun, but there are moments when dealing with everyone else can be too much.
Qila may feel uneasy with other dogs, but her owner claims that she enjoys being around people. The dog’s owner calls the animal in another video on her TikTok account a “professional attention seeker.” But at least the dogs gave it a shot! They should be commended for stepping outside their comfort zone. And lots of kisses, treats, and belly massages!
