We all know what it feels like to not get enough attention from the person that we desire it from the most. So we really felt for the hilarious Great Dane in a video that we stumbled across on YouTube today. Sometimes, dogs crave nothing more than the full attention of their owner, but when their human parent also has to split their attention between them and another fur baby, then that’s where things can get tricky.
The Great Dane in this story was faced with that exact situation when his dad was giving cuddles and attention to his dog brother instead of him. Not content with the amount of attention he’d been given so far, the hilarious pooch threw a huge tantrum, and it’s the funniest thing we’ve seen today!
The hilarious moment was captured by Ron Cameron and shared onto YouTube with the caption: ‘Dinky the great Dane argues and throws a tantrum.’ It became an instant success and now has over 11.7 million views as people can’t stop laughing over the Great Dane’s dramatic reaction to not being given enough attention.
The video begins with Ron cuddling up with a black and white dog called RoRo whilst Dinky sits on the couch opposite and is clearly making his feelings heard about this situation. He’s growling and whining indignantly as Ron says,
“You get up there and lay down – let RoRo have a turn.”
This seems to make Dinky even more agitated. He continues to growl and looks over at his human mom who’s filming the whole thing as if to say, “Can I have some backup here?”
“Don’t look at mom, just lay down,” Ron says. “I can give RoRo lovies too!”
Coming from a bearded, tatted man, this sentence sounds absolutely hilarious, and we’re living for the way that he talks to his fur babies!
The spoiled pooch continues to protest, and Ron has to put his foot down, saying:
“You’re just tired and cranky. It’s okay for me to love RoRo – it’s your brother.” He continues on, “It’s RoRo’s turn! You get up there and lay down.”
At this, Dinky dramatically throws himself onto the couch in a fit of jealousy. He seems to be saying to his dad, “I’ll do what you asked because I’m a good boy, but let it be known that I’m not happy about it!”
People took to the comments to share their love for the pampered pooch, with one user saying:
“Anytime I’m having a “ruff” day, this is one of the vids that can cheer me up. Thanks for posting.”
Someone else added:
“One of the funniest things I find about this is this biker looking guy saying things like; ‘It’s Roo-Roo’s turn to get lovies'”
We have to agree! It’s the sweetest thing to see such a tough-looking guy show affection towards his fur babies.
Another user said:
“LOL Danes are all the same: A baby with the terrible twos trapped inside of a horse’s body.”
We have to agree that we’ve never seen anything quite so dramatic before! The Great Dane is a real character, and this video sure has brightened up our day. Scroll down to watch it below!
