Dog sprains tail for excessive wagging because everyone is home

If you need any more proof that dogs are God's greatest gift then look no further.

Dogs around the country have been treated to extra time with their owner's this week due to the Coronavirus pandemic rendering a work from home period necessary for pretty much everybody.

Extra walkies, more treats, more cuddles and more quality time with their owners has been enjoyed by millions of dogs during this period – but one dog has enjoyed the situation a little too much.

Posting on twitter yesterday, dog owner Emma Smith wrote: "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’."

Of course, the tweet quickly went viral, and has racked up over 200,000 likes since it went live.

Emma's dog is called Rolo, and after going viral she followed up on the story, tweeting: "Didn’t expect this to 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."

This might be the best story yet to come out of this awful pandemic, and has put a smile on our faces today.
