This Golden Retriever’s reaction to seeing a human-sized version of Gumby is the dog equivalent of a child’s reaction to a surprise trip to Disneyland.
For Halloween, dog owner Ben Mesches decided to surprise his dog Jolene by wearing his old claymation costume. She was given a Gumby chew toy earlier this month, and it quickly became her favourite thing to play with.
The video starts with Jolene sitting down and playing with her chew toy. When her Gumby costume-donned owner enters the room, she drops the miniature Gumby and rises up – her attention has been completely diverted to the giant green figure in the room.
She slowly walks towards Mesches, and blissful happiness ensues.
The video was posted onto YouTube last Thursday and has already amassed over 5.6 million views at the time of writing.
Well done, Mesches.
