A dog has gone viral for mocking its injured owner while going down the stairs, and the internet is having a right good laugh.
In a video Posted by the dog’s owner, who goes by the username Ash_laughs, on TikTok, the dog can be seen going down the stairs very slowly, imitating the owner’s movements, after seeing her struggling to get downstairs, due to a leg injury.
The post—which was shared by Ash_laughs on Tuesday—has so far reached over 697,000 likes, 2,900 comments and 26,500 reshares.
While a broken leg is not contagious, a yawn certainly is. According to research by the American Kennel Club, the sound of a human yawn can trigger one from your dog. And it’s four times as likely to happen when it’s the yawn of a person he knows.
The same study also found that about forty-five percent of US dogs sleep in their owner’s bed, and all of them dream, but puppies and senior dogs sleep more frequently than adult dogs.
Most users loved the dog’s sense of humor and/or empathy.
