Dogs are similar to humans in many ways – they may not be able to talk, but that doesn’t stop them from having interesting personalities.
Gelato is a husky who was recently described as a “morning person” in a viral TikTok video. He looked energetic and eager to start the day, while his canine companions looked completely different.
The video, shared by @lifewithsnowdogs, shows Gelato full of energy as he waits for his foster carer, Samy, to let him out of his crate. The other two huskies continued to doze. To view the clip, click here.
Sammy added the following text to the video: “When only new foster dogs were early risers.”
It seems the other two dogs aren’t the only ones who like to lie down. In fact, one in seven Americans say they are not a morning person, according to a survey conducted by OnePoll on behalf of Evolution Fresh for Better Breakfast Month.
The results also found that 26% of 2,000 Americans do not have time to prepare breakfast in the morning. And those who don’t get up early would rather sleep than make breakfast.
Leo, the three-year-old dog in the video, seems to feel the same way. In the video, he is lying on his back with his paws in the air, looking very comfortable.
As of this writing, the adorable video has racked up 202,400 views and 27,400 likes. Other dog owners comment on whether their dogs are early birds or night owls.
One user said: “My dog is lying on the bed [until] 10-12 will come when she is ready to eat. If I try to wake her up before then, she’ll find another place to sleep. “
Another user said: “I have 8 dogs. 3 are morning dogs. The rest are night owls lol.”
“My two dogs are both all-time-of-the-day dogs. Have to get up at 12am to pee? Oh, it’s time to get up, right??!” said another.
in September, Weekly newspaper Veterinarians were contacted to find out what owners can do to ensure their furry friends get a good night’s sleep. Veterinarian Shannon Barrett offers these tips:
- Make sure they have a comfortable sleeping area
- Stick to the same nightly routine
- Provide adequate physical and mental stimulation
“Just like us, dogs need to burn off energy during the day,” Barrett, of Charleston, South Carolina, told us. Weekly newspaper. “Regular walks, play and physical activity can help tire them out and make it easier for them to settle down in the evening.”
