The online world will surely never run out of stories and anecdotes featuring dogs’ antics and mischief. And obviously, these tales never fail to make everyone smile.
Here’s another cute story that you can add to this collection. A puppy had captivated the Internet because of his reaction after hearing his own bark for the first time.
Po’s first-ever bark
The viral video of a dog named Po had been drawing in people for the cutest reasons. In the clip, you could see the dog playing beside his crate. Then out of the blue, he started barking. After that, he stood rooted to the spot; he was probably looking for the source of the sound.
The video clip had been shared by a popular Twitter page called WeRateDogs, which humorously rated dogs (mind you, all dogs featured on this page received passing marks!). The said page explained that Po’s own bark had sent him into an existential crisis.
The Internet falls in love with Po
Of course, the Internet has easily fallen in love with the dog and his funny reactions. Currently, the video has 1.6 million views, over 130K likes, more than 19K retweets, and 735 comments. A lot of the comments to the video were funny and witty.
One commenter said that the best puppies were the self-aware ones and they even shared a video of a puppy being puzzled by its own reflection in the mirror.
Another person said that the dog probably didn’t know that he could bark, hence the surprise reaction. One Twitter user exclaimed that what she just watched was the best video ever.
A fourth commenter said that Po immediately realized that he was a dog the moment he started barking. He jokingly added that the dog would adjust in due time. And because Po evidently showed signs of wonder and stress at once, one person suggested giving the dog treats for therapeutic reasons.
