The Golden Retriever meets his little brother for the first time and can’t contain his joy
The viral video shows the big dog going crazy when he sees the puppy entering the house. It was “the best day of his life.”
Welcoming a four-legged companion is a joy that many animal lovers can’t keep inside. After all, pets bring inexhaustible joy to the families that welcome them. However, humans are not the only ones who want to expand their families.
A video recently shared by Samuel Griffiths, 26, born in Frome, England, on X (formerly Twitter), shows the moment Ted, a golden retriever, prepares to meet his younger brother, a pup of the same race. for the first time. With a pillow in his mouth, the big dog can’t contain his ecstasy and wags not only his tail, but his entire body without stopping.
When the door finally opens and the cub enters with endless energy, Ted goes crazy and begins pacing around the room, jumping on the couch, while looking at his new companion. For a second, he lets go of the pillow to smell the baby, but then immediately picks it up again. “It’s your emotional support pillow,” one user joked.
We Rate Dog, an Instagram page with 3.2 million followers dedicated to dogs, also shared the adorable video. “This is Ted. He met his baby brother today and tried his best to keep calm, but it’s really hard when it’s the best day of your life.”
He couldn’t wait to meet his little brother ❤️

It’s no secret that dogs are social animals that love to live in a pack. The descendants of wolves have, since their domestication, been accustomed to living with humans – whom they instinctively consider part of their pack. However, it is also good for them to live with other dogs.
A study by a team of researchers from the Canine Aging Project analyzed the social determinants associated with longer life expectancy — that’s with more than 25,000 dogs — and came to a conclusion that is too clear to ignore: the central issue is in the package. Experts have found that the time a dog spends with people is an important factor in a healthy life, but the fact that he also spends time with other dogs is also of great importance.
Golden Retrievers are some of the most docile breeds in the world, and dogs make friends with all creatures. Boris, a dog who lives in the United States, hunts a herd of cows and brings them vegetables every day.
