Dread it. Run from it. Your pet's nail trimming session still arrives.
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.
