How about a little humor to break up the stress of this horrible time?

In a video from April, that is just now starting to take off online, we see a small dog giving its owner some loving by licking their arm. However, the love fest ceases as soon as the owner coughs.

The dog stops the licking and immediately gives its owner the side eye treatment, suggesting it is fully aware of the coronavirus pandemic that is sweeping the world.

Maybe it’s a coincidence and the dog has always reacted like that when the owner coughs. But for my money, it’s certainly possible that the dog knows something is wrong if the owner has been around the house more than usual while quarantining.

Pets are incredibly in-tune with what’s going on around them. Never underestimate your pet’s ability to understand what’s going on in the world today – especially when times are as weird as they are in this day and age.
