Dread it. Run from it. Your pet's nail trimming session still arrives.
Nervous Corgi Keeps Support Plushie Close During Grooming Sesh
Such is the struggle, very much real, for both dogs — and their people — everywhere.
But for one suspicious corgi, the antidote to said indignity is a cherished toy and "support plushie."
Adorable AF, no?
The money moment unfolds about two-thirds of the way through the clip when the skeptical corgi flashes the groomer a woebegone look, the eyes communicating a how-could-you-do-me-like-this sense of betrayal.
Not mad, just disappointed.
Finding the woofer's crestfallen resignation all too real and very relatable, Redditors pushed the short video loop to the top of r/awww, the site's landing page for all things cute and furry, with an astounding 58,000+ upvotes.
"Glad the support plus his works. My dog needs a Hannibal Lecter type mask!," shared one woman.
"I want to make these plushies for all the puppies. #CareerGoals," added a second.
While the technique might not be as game-changing as that of the Minnesota dad who suspended his Frenchie from a makeshift harness Macgyvered from a cheap handbag and pull-up bar, this does seem like a breakthrough in dog and groomer relations.
