Internet left behind in Stitches by Dog’s Attempt to Chase Seagulls

A viral video of a dog chasing seagulls before his company took an unexpected leap has left the internet in the lurch.

In a TikTok video, seen here, user bradtonner10 explained how his springer spaniel chasing seagulls on the beach “went wrong”.

The clip began with the pooch running toward a flock of seagulls before they took flight as waves crashed in the distance.

Seconds later, the spaniel began to run in the other direction – presumably to assess whether he should make a second run.

But the dog was suddenly stopped in its tracks and stumbled into a depression in the sand covered with seawater, obscuring its depth.

The clip then ended with the spaniel’s owner laughing as the dog, seemingly shocked, tried to make sense of what had happened.

Since it was shared on Friday December 2nd, the video has garnered 3.3 million views and more than 607,200 likes.

It’s not surprising that dog content is going viral online as the US is a nation of dog lovers.

According to the American Veterinary Medical Association, there were 76.8 million dogs in homes in the United States in 2018.

The majority of TikTok users thought that the dog received a sudden dose of reality when it fell.

TikTok user Madeline wrote, “They say dogs aren’t ashamed, but I disagree.”

While Dea253’s cousin Tara added: “My husband was living his best life, the earth was trying to swallow him.”

Paul Clyde said: “Live your best life… then… bam. Life happens.”

Kathy commented: “It’s looking back at the hole like it’s the hole’s fault.

Luckily, Tonner later explained that his springer spaniel was only hurt in his pride in the fall.

He added: “He’s perfectly fine by the way, he hasn’t taken one bit of damage.”

news week has reached out to bradtonner10 and several canine experts for comment.

In November, a pooch abandoned more than 1.1 million TikTok users after being caught doing it [bad] dog stuff.”

The video began with what appeared to be a screenshot of a text message from the user’s neighbor, who shared a photo of a dog standing on the snow-covered ground while asking, “Good morning, Desiree. Is that your dog?”

The owner was later spotted on her way to pick up the pooch, who appears to have “decided to go for a little walk on her own.”

Moments later, the dog was seen running towards her, who then said, ‘Excuse me little missy, what do you think you’re doing? Are you here to see your friend?”
