If your Halloween costume is a good one, it will bring happiness to everyone that sees it. You’ll feel good, they’ll feel good, everyone will feel good, because nothing is better this time of year than a great get-up. But no matter how wonderful your costume is this year, you can combine all of the happiness it brings and it won’t equal the joy experienced by this dog when she saw her owner dressed just like her favorite toy.
This video was posted by Ben Mesches, and in it, his dog Jolene is quietly sitting with her favorite item, a stuffed Gumby, when he walks in dressed exactly like the doll. What happens next can only be described accurately with squeals of delight. At first Jolene is clearly confused, almost overwhelmed by this life-sized version of her favorite possession, but that quickly gives way to pure and utter bliss. She leaps into Gumby’s arms and then goes nuts when they both fall to the floor, running over him as he giggles.
This is obviously wonderful, especially since Jolene clearly want to protect her new giant Gumby from the other dog, but she can’t commit to being worried because she’s so happy herself. This is basically the complete opposite of that scene from Best in Show, when Parker Posey lost the stuffed bee.
So good luck with your costume this year, we hope it’s awesome and everyone loves it. Just don’t feel too badly when no one is as happy to see you as this dog was. Unless you dress up like a giant bone and go to the local kennel. That might be the only way to top this.
