Have You Seen This? Tiny dog vs. banana

Posted January 4

THE FRUIT BASKET — Bananas are a great source of potassium and an important food source for many animals, including many of us humans.

That could be one reason why this small pup is eating a banana, or it could be that his New Year’s resolution is eating a paleo diet. (Please don’t feed your pets a paleo diet.)

Whatever the reason this dachshund is eating a banana, it’s probably the cutest way for you to start your new year with a smile. Indeed, you may even take it so far to say it’s so cute that it must be an omen for a grand 2017.

The video is inexplicably adorable for a couple of reasons. First, I dare you to not get lost in the sweetness of the dog’s chocolaty, sweet eyes. Second, it’s lying on it back and eating the banana like he’s a human baby, and anthropomorphizing animals is the fastest way to feel the “aww factor.”

If I didn’t know any better, I would say this dog absolutely has to be part monkey. But since no one has actually discovered “The Island of Dr. Moreau,” and since I’ve only heard of scientist cloning animals and not splicing them together, I think it’s safe to say this is simply a crushingly adorable dog that loves to eat bananas.
