Being stung by a wasp is a nasty experience, and one dog on TikTok knows this only too well.
In footage shared to the app by Nathan Fleming, known online as KungFuFlem, a dog can be seen lying on a beige sofa.
When his owner approaches the cute canine lifts up his back leg as if to show his paw to the camera.
Text overlaying the video explains: “He got stung by a bee this morning and every time I walk by him he lifts his paw to show me.”
The clip is made all the more adorable by the pet’s wide-eyed expression, and the nursery-style music that is playing in the background.
Fleming captioned the cute footage, which can be viewed here: “Poor Doge #MurraydaMutt #LilMurm #beesting #dogsoftiktok #savethebees.”
Since it was posted to the social media site on July 16 the video has so far been viewed a whopping 3 million times. It has also been liked by more than 523,200 people.
Many people have rushed to the comments section to share their thoughts on the heartwarming clip.
One TikTok user, Valanciagiles0, wrote: “Lol his face is like ‘you see this momma.’”
Another person, Sylvia Velilla, added: “How sweet sending kisses to make your paw feel better.”
Tina Trucker typed: “So you don’t forget to bring him snacks as he cannot walk for the first few weeks!”
Cold As Ice revealed: “I thought my dog broke his foot one time and apparently because I babied him his whole life he was just acting extra nothing was really wrong with him.”
An account by the name of user4196232453361 declared: “Omg if a wasp stung my baby on the nose, I would have torched that thing with fire afterwards and threw its ashes over the fence.”
Willow gushed: “I love that my FYP is almost exclusively cute animals by now and I love your dog.”
Jammietea revealed: “Aww my dog did this too. She died last year and seeing this warmed my heart with all the memories. Give him snuggles and blessings from me.”
Another example of a dog going viral for being adorable, is this beagle puppy who was recently filmed napping next to a kitten who was using its ear as a blanket.
In footage, posted to TikTok by thebeagleandthebun, a small grey and white kitten can be seen snoozing away next to the sleeping beagle as the golden ear of the dog is flopped over the baby cat’s head and shoulders.
The sweet scene is captioned: “Just using the dogs ear as a blanket #cat #dog,” alongside a laughing-face emoji.
Newsweek has contacted Fleming for comment.
