At these times of uncertainty, where more and more people go into quarantine and practice social distancing, there are some who actually benefit from our life’s sudden shift. No, we’re not talking about delivery services or Netflix, we’re talking, unsurprisingly, about pets and more specifically, dogs.
As people self isolate themselves from society and work from home, dogs are getting unprecedented amounts of attention. Dogs now get an endless amount of attention, petting, treats, and walks. Unaware of the hardships the world is going through, dogs are now living in a dog’s heaven.
A happy and playful doggo by the name of Rolo was so pleased by the sudden change in his owner’s schedule that he couldn’t contain his excitement. So much so, that it caused him actual damage. Rolo’s owner Emma Smith from Essex, England first shared her dog’s tale (meaning story), with her Twitter friends: ‘So my dog has been so happy that everyone is home for quarantine, that his tail has stopped working, so we went to the vet and the vet said he had sprained his tail from excessively wagging it.’
Her Tweet instantly won over the hearts of thousands of Twitter users gaining more than 480K likes and nearly 60K Retweets at the time of writing
Didn’t expect this happen😂, for those asking, he is currently on pain relief and the vet said he should be healed within a week, this is him on the 2nd day. He is super happy and there is now movement from side to side but he is struggling to lift it up in the air. pic.twitter.com/dY0o96HOpj— Emma smith (@Emmasmith77xx) March 21, 2020
People wanted to know more about the charming dog, so Emma gladly uploaded a video of her lovely pooch:

Seeing the warm response Rolo got from the online community, Emma felt obligated to keep Rolo’s new fans updated about her dog’s condition. This time she posted a more assuring tweet, saying: ‘Didn’t expect this happen, for those asking, he is currently on pain relief and the vet said he should be healed within a week, this is him on the 2nd day. He is super happy and there is now movement from side to side but he is struggling to lift it up in the air.’
People kept replaying and showering Emma and her pooch with warm recovery wishes. One user shared that his dog too had a similar injury: ‘This has happened with my dog several times. It’s very adorable but also a little sad.’
Emma then posted one final tweet (at least for now), thanking the internet community, and assuring them her dog will be back to his adorable self in no time:
Thanks for everyone’s concern, im sure he will be back wagging like this in no time 😊 pic.twitter.com/xyt3qR9KjI— Emma smith (@Emmasmith77xx) March 21, 2020
In times of so much uncertainty, there’s one thing you can count on to never change. That is, of course, the unconditional love canines give to their humans. They certainly deserve all the attention they’re getting right now.
