A video of a sleepy puppy trying not to keep his eyes open on a boat trip has gone viral on TikTok, and many commentators are bewitched by the adorable animal.
In footage that Dawg Haus posted on the video sharing app on July 3rd, the little English bulldog can be seen on the carpeted floor of a motor boat.
A man’s voice can be heard saying, “First time, doesn’t look that thrilled yet. What do you think, buddy? Do you want to fall asleep?”
Kona, a puppy around 11 weeks old, nods when he is overwhelmed by the tiredness and movement of the motorboat.
The man continues, “The rocking of the boat sooooo sleepy … Kona’s first boat trip. Hey, Kona, you know your name, don’t you?”
In response, the puppy tries to raise its head only to make it fall again, as its eyelids do the same.
The man, now smiling, continues: “So far not too enthusiastic. I think he’s going to take a nap. He’s so tired.”
The clip titled “#sleepyhead #bulldoglove #sleep #puppy #englishbulldoglife #englishbulldogsoftiktok #puppylove” went viral with 4.1 million views and 1.1 million likes.
Thousands of TikTokers have left comments sharing their delight with the footage.
One social media user, JiJiGirl, wrote: “He’s still so small, maybe a few months more dad.”
Another person, Asnj3, wrote, “This is the cutest thing I’ve ever seen.”
Katie typed: “He doesn’t look real, he’s so cute.”
Blake Pavey joked, “For Kona, I’d take a bullet.”
Lifegavememelon raved, “He’s so small and so damn cute. He needs a nap, Daddy.”
Miki Minach commented, “Friend, are you sure he didn’t get seasick? Lol, by the way, he’s so adorable!”
A TikToker using the User2512031066747 handle gave Kona’s owner some advice, writing, “If you’ve never owned this breed just be careful in the sun. I have one and they can overheat quickly. However, you may already know that. “
Superduper92 asked: “How do your other dogs behave when they go on a boat trip?”
Dawg House, who also owns a bulldog named Stella and has posted several clips of her adventures, replied, “They like the boat. Very peaceful!”
According to the Sleep.org website, puppies need just as much sleep as human babies.
The website states, “A 16 week old puppy sleeps an average of 11.2 hours a day and up to 14 hours or more. Younger puppies may need 18 to 20 hours of sleep a day to support their body and brain development. “
Newsweek has contacted Dawg Haus for comment.
