Jealous Older Dog Doesn't Care For Puppy Stealing Its Spot—And Its Reaction Is Hilariously Pure

Humans and dogs have loved each other for centuries at a level pretty much unprecedented across any other pairs of species.

As such, dogs form attachments to those humans and do not like it when those attachments are in any way altered or threatened.

See exhibit A:

Now then, the older dog is used to cuddling up under the arm of their owner. But with the new puppy in place, this attachment is threatened.

Check out the problem solving that the older dog takes on:

That's right—this big ol' pup both brought over a soft dog bed for the younger puppy and then physically moved the little one from the couch to the dog bed so that it could grab its usual spot, draped over its human.

Have you EVER seen a more polite display of jealousy?

Raising a puppy with an older dog can already be tricky, because often, the older dog will have a stronger relationship with the human than the puppy will.

Do you think the older doggo knows this and is trying to gently claim its territory?

And the little guy's look at the camera at the end?

Pawsitively heartbreaking.

But the older pup is plenty happy.

A person can basically pay tuition with the amount of money they walk away with from working in a club. It's a very lucrative thing. But it also draws a crowd that is rather unusual, as it is an unusual job.

Everyone is afraid of something, but for most of us it's something that "makes sense" like spiders, snakes, etc. That's not the case for everyone, though.

Being accused of things you didn't do is annoying and can be infuriating even in the best of situations. Sometimes, though, the thing you're accused of is so ridiculous that you can't even be mad.

For example, I had a group of friends I would chat with online. One day, the elderly father of one of those friends got a phone call from Florida saying the friend was in trouble and needed bail money.

Some of us are lucky: We have good neighbors. We each go about our business; no one makes any noise or brings any drama into each other's lives... It's quite simple, really.

But others aren't so lucky, and chances are pretty high that you've been one of those unlucky people. (As have I, sad to say.)
