A video capturing the incredible bond between two cocker spaniel dogs has taken TikTok by storm.
The clip, shared on the @herbertandclover account, belonging to two English cocker spaniels, has amassed an astonishing 4.8 million views since its upload on January 8.
The video, filmed in Adelaide, Australia, begins with an overlay message that says:
“In 2022, we brought home a cocker spaniel puppy. We instantly fell in love with him, and he became our entire world.”
The heart-melting footage shows a black-haired dog sitting beside a woman and being showered with affectionate strokes.
Another note pops up on the screen, saying:
“He adored other dogs, so as he grew older, we thought about getting him a friend. And so, on his first birthday, we surprised him.”
The video then reveals the birthday-celebrating pup wearing a party hat at a table. Subsequent scenes showcase the two dogs joyfully playing together.
The close friendship between these two pups comes as no surprise.
According to a study published in Scientific Reports, dogs can form relationships of similar quality with both humans and fellow canines, with the dynamics varying across different partners.
Renowned dog expert Stanley Coren explains that well-socialized dogs possess the innate ability to approach any living creature, regardless of its species amiably. Their happiness relies not on the type of animal they interact with but on the quality of those interactions.
Throughout the viral clip, a note exclaims, “This is how it’s going,” while the camera captures the adorable duo enjoying outdoor adventures.
Accompanying the post is a caption that reads, “And the rest is history for these two. Best friends forever.”
TikTok users were deeply touched by the unwavering bond between the two dogs.
One user, Sascha Jacobs, expressed, “I would simply die for this to be my life,”
while @itz_liv simply commented, “Awww so cuteee.”
