In a world of daily stress and toil, it is still possible to find a few bright moments of happiness and joy here and there, in particular for pet lovers who get a kick out of seeing videos of pets in their moments of unabashed joy, like in a recent video that went viral of a dog freaking out from joy who meets a favorite chew toy come to life. The golden retriever named Jolene, got the chance to act possibly the canine equivalent of a star-struck human, when someone her owner knew dressed up in a Gumby costume on Thursday, giving Jolene a doggie thrill she will probably remember the rest of her life.
Tech Times reported that Jolene can be seen in a video uploaded to YouTube by Ben Mesches. Check is out below! In the video Jolene is shown on the floor, chewing on her Gumby toy. The golden retriever sees a human dressed in a Gumby costume for Halloween, walking into the room, and she stands up, her eyes wide, as the realizes exactly who has entered her home, seemingly her favorite chew toy, come to life.
The dog can smell, of course, that there is actually a human inside the costume, but that does not stop the golden retriever’s joy from being expressed. Maybe, just maybe, Jolene is even more joyful, knowing that a human has gone to the trouble to make her day, by dressing up for her.
Jolene approaches the man, who is dressed up like Gumby, and jumps into his arms, as the two of them end up on the floor, the man in the Gumby costume laughing at how happy Jolene appears to be. The video, showing the golden retriever expressing a few moments of joyful bliss, have taken the Internet by storm, and have shown that Halloween can be one of the best holidays of the entire year…especially for dogs like Jolene, whose owners arrange for their pets to have fun encounters in their lives.
The video currently has 216,081 views, and the number is rapidly climbing, as more and more people discover that they find a few brief moments of joy, themselves, watching Jolene meeting her favorite chew toy come to life. Watching Jolene as the knowledge that someone who looks very much like her favorite chew toy is walking into her home is priceless, like watching a little kid meeting Santa Claus or his or her favorite superhero in person.
On Thursday, Jolene the dog freaked out from joy after she meet what must have seemed to her like her favorite chew toy, suddenly come to life. The joyful encounter led to coverage even by People, which compared Jolene’s meeting with a human dressed up like Gumby to “a small child finding out they were pulled out of school to go on a surprise trip to Disney World.” Watch the video below, and may your Halloween be filled with as much joy as Jolene appears to feel, upon meeting her favorite chew toy, come to life!
