When someone pays you a compliment, what do you do? Unless you have an unusually large ego, you probably respond with a modest, “Oh, really? Thank you! That’s so kind.” Even if you know you look amazing in your new outfit, or that your home cooked lasagne tastes exceptionally good, it’d be rude to agree.
This modesty doesn’t usually extend to non-humans, but one little puppy proved that animals can have a hard time accepting a compliment, too.
In a video shared to YouTube four years ago, a tiny frenchie pup can be seen sitting on the couch behind a man. The pup is wearing a red bandanna that looks, quite frankly, adorable.
The man turns to his puppy and asks:
“How do you like your bandanna?”
And the pup responds with a nonchalant head tilt and a funny little bark.
The man continues:
“You look super handsome.”
In response to this, the puppy puts his paw up and shakes his head, as if to say, “Oh, stop,” and the man says,
“Yeah, I agree.”
It’s a short, simple video, but it’s easy to see why it has racked up more than 700,000 views since it was posted. The little puppy genuinely seems like he’s modestly reacting to the man’s compliment – and viewers agree. One person commented:
“Never thought I’d see a dog have a visibly hard time accepting a compliment. He understood and reacted to everything the guy was saying.”
“Both of you are handsome!! Lol”
When you see the photos of him on his account, it’s quite easy to see why. Link is obviously a bundle of chaos, in the best way possible. There are photos and videos of him taking a bath in a swimming pool, looking unimpressed in a headband, and hanging out with various other frenchie puppies.
Since Link has grown from pup into man dog, he’s seen a lot of change in his life. His human dad, Sean, has got married and had a baby with his wife. The pair also seem to have around 100 dogs between them.
If you’re more interested in Sean than Link, his YouTube videos are a combination of recorded workouts and videos of him and his dogs. You can find plenty more videos of Link on his channel, including one titled “This is my life…” in which Sean and Link appear to have a blowing/barking competition. With 1 million views, it’s an odd, if not amusing watch.
Sean has gone pretty quiet on his YouTube channel recently, so Instagram is the place to go if you’re looking to get your daily fix of his adorable doggos. Though Link is much calmer now he’s an adult, he hasn’t lost his puppy personality.
Whether Link’s tiny bandanna still fits him is another question. Perhaps he wears much larger bandannas as an older dog – and we’re betting he’s still as modest as ever if he’s paid a compliment about them.
Prepare to have a giggle at the video of Link tossing a paw at Sean’s compliment in the video below.
