Video: Dog snoring isn’t that unusual, but this pup sounds just like a cartoon character

Dogs snore for a few different reasons

Sometimes real life seems fake, and this dog certainly fits into that category. If you’ve never seen a dog snoring before, you’re in for a surprise. This particular pup looks so silly while sleeping that you might imagine you’re actually watching Pluto the cartoon dog. That’s why the viral TikTok video posted by yowritten has the internet in stitches while watching the hilarious beastie.

We all know dogs love to sleep, but this one might be the king of it. The video opens to show a large pooch lying down in his favorite sleeping position, deep in slumber. On-screen text says, “Bro sleeps like he’s in a cartoon.” As the camera zooms in we get to watch his jowls move every time he breathes out. In addition, you can hear the distinct sound of a snoring dog, almost as if he were in a movie.

Commenters thought the video was hilarious, but most saw a piece of themselves in the happy pup. “School: *starts at 8* me at 7:59,” said WhyMeTabalt, who certainly captured the mood. Deep down, we probably all wish we could sleep as deeply as this canine.

Others tagged someone in the comments to insist they, too, snore this loudly and perfectly.

Finally, Ruby certainly told the truth: “I’ve been laughing at this for 5 minutes straight. I’m crying.”

Why do dogs snore (and what can you do about it)?

If your partner were keeping you up all night with their loud snoring, you’d probably get them a sleep study. But dogs can’t wear a CPAP, so what is there to do? Just as in humans, there are a few different reasons that your animal might snore.

The most common cause is extra weight, so if you hear a lot of Zs coming from your four-legged friend, it might be time to put them on a diet. However, if you know that Fido doesn’t need to shed any pounds, there are other possible sources of dog snores. These include allergies, sickness, and sleeping position. If your buddy just happened to lie down funny one night, you could hear a couple of honks and then never again. No need to investigate in that circumstance. Also, some breeds, like bulldogs and pugs, nearly always snore because of their mouth and head shape.

However, after you think through all of the possible causes, you might want to take a trip to the vet. They’ll be able to listen to your dog’s lungs and see if Fido might have a cold or seasonal allergies. Either way, some helpful meds could clear the snoring right up.

While it can be difficult to get any sleep lying next to an animal that snores loudly, it certainly gives us something to laugh about.

Video: Dog befriends bike thief (or why golden retrievers shouldn’t be guard dogs)
This is all the proof we need that golden retrievers make bad guard dogs
A sweet golden retriever puppy lies on the grass

The golden retrievers are at it again. Well known for being playful and goofy, these beasties lack one dog-defining characteristic: a healthy dose of stranger danger. In the mind of a golden, there's no such thing — only a new friend waiting to happen. This viral video takes that flaw to its natural conclusion when a beautiful goldie proudly invites a bike thief into his garage.

The video is a snippet from a broadcast and is entitled "Guard dog or accomplice?" on TikTok. The newscasters explain that a $1,000 e-bike was stolen out of a garage, and we all get to witness the scene. A sweet pup goes right up to the presumed thief and demands pets and belly rubs. The bike thief happily obliges and looks a little confused, perhaps unsure if he should stick to his original plan after meeting such a delightful pooch.

Video: Adorable dog thinks the TV wants to play fetch
This is why dogs love the game fetch so much
Beautiful couple watching television at home with their dog on sofa

Some pups just can't ever get enough playtime and will take every opportunity to chase a ball, even a virtual one. Videos of cats and dogs watching TV frequently catch our attention because they remind us how much more advanced our animals are than we really understand. Unlike us, though, this doggo doesn't quite get that he can't jump into the action on the screen, sadly for him. Watch this video of a dog playing fetch, or at least attempting to.

The video opens with a shot of a person throwing a football in a yard on the TV. The player tosses the ball, and it goes offscreen as we pan to a beloved dog watching it excitedly. He tries to follow the football, not realizing that it exists in a completely separate time and place. He looks back and forth, seeming to question his pet parent about the laws of physics, not understanding where the chaseable football went. It ends with the sound of his delighted person laughing in the background. The caption sums it up perfectly with: Huh? Mom, where’d it go?

Video: Genius dog figures out a way to beat the summer heat
Plus the best ways to keep your dog cool in the hot summer months

As the blistering heat continues this summer, people and pets are turning to all sorts of cooling methods to keep the days bearable. You may have discovered a few hacks for maintaining a reasonable temperature (more on those later), but this little guy has another idea for how to cool down a dog: a good old-fashioned fan. Watch as the dog genius in this video decides to take matters into his own paws to get the exact temperature he needs.

The TikTok starts out with a pup laying in his crate with the text "Smart dog gets too hot so he adjusts the fan." He easily pushes the door open and walks over to a fan previously off-screen. Fido jumps up and uses his paws to push the cooling device a little bit, thereby making sure the air blows directly on his little home. Of course, he returns to his crate, now with the cooling breeze, and closes the door behind him (like a little gentleman). That's why the caption states: He understood the assignment. Comments agreed with Mr. O remarking, "Too cute." It's certainly one of the cutest — and cleverest — things we've seen in a while.
