Tears of joy as dog tries to ‘grab his ears’ in funny video

A dog named Hugo has gone viral on social media after his owner shared a video of him trying to grab his own ears, leaving the internet in a frenzy.

A clip shared by his owner in September on TikTok, under the username lukec9311, shows the Weimaraner lying on a sofa, trying to bite his long ears, and it comes with a caption that read: “I I’d say he learned that these are attached to his head, but…I’d be lying!”

In other comments, the poster explained that Hugo also likes to chase his tail a lot, and “you can see the conflict in him when he has to choose what to chase.”

Adding that, unfortunately for Hugo, “it’s a losing battle”, and every time he gets one [ear] the other appears and it starts again”

According to the American Kennel Club (AKC), Weimaraners are very affectionate dogs that have a high level of tolerance and patience with young children.

They are very protective of their family and have a good level of adaptability and training potential. They are also very playful dogs, with the AKC classifying their level of play as non-stop.

Their lifespan is around 10 to 13 years, and although they have very high energy levels, they are not known to bark excessively.

These long-eared dogs were originally bred to hunt bear and deer and were not converted into companion dogs until the second half of the 19th century. Today, the Weimaraner ranks forty-first in popularity in the United States

The clip has been viewed over 104,200 times and received over 11,500 likes in less than a month, and the internet can’t get enough. One user, thicckshake, said, “I can’t count how many times I’ve watched this.”

Lmwx95 commented, “imagine that frustration what a gorgeous boy.” And Jana Michelle wrote: “Honestly if my ears were banging against my face all day I would lose my mind too lol.”

Another user, Mystic, said, “Dad!!! For God’s sake, make him a pet!!!” And Alba Gu’Brath pointed out, “At least you won’t have to buy him toys.”

Debbie Murthick commented: “Hahah I’ve seen the tail hunt but never catch the ear… cute.” And Shona Allee joked: “Your dog is broke… The best way to be!

Toebeansontoast added: “I just hope he never catches one because ouch.”
