Dogs are experiencing unexpected levels of attention as people everywhere stays at home and self-isolate themselves.
However, they can do themselves an injury with so much joy!
For the first time in their lives, owners aren’t leaving them to go to work for eight or nine hours a day.
Instead, they have seemingly unlimited company.Of course, unbeknown to them, the reason isn’t entirely joyful – people everywhere are taking proper precautions and working from home to help prevent the spread of coronavirus. Still, our furbabies’ blissful ignorance is exemplified by this cute pup, who simply couldn’t stop wagging his tail.
Emma Smith from Essex, England tweeted to share the innocent plight of Rolo, a sausage dog who just can’t get enough of his family being at home all the time.
‘So my dog has been so happy that everyone is home for quarantine, that his tail has stopped working, so we went to the vet and the vet said he had sprained his tail from excessively wagging it.’ Emma tweeted.
Poor Rolo! Apart from the infinite love from his owners, Rolo also has the internet’s sympathy. The original tweet has since gained more than 150,000 likes and nearly 16,000 retweets. People were evidently clambering for more details about the dachshund.
The replies are filled with people sending well wishes, pictures of their own dogs and similar injuries to Rolo’s, with one tweeting: ‘Omg! I’m so glad he is okay! My Labrador had this injury too, she’s so excitable and her tail goes round and round like a helicopter, we had to spend weeks trying to keep her as calm as possible because literally every time she sees someone she’s just like OMG! HUMAN! HI!’
Another user wrote: ‘This has happened with my dog several times. It’s very adorable but also a little sad.’ If there’s one good thing to come out of coronavirus, it’s the worldwide happiness of dogs. They deserve it.
