This Dog Sprained His Tail From Wagging So Hard Because He Was Happy Everyone’s Home

Dogs are precious creatures that are seriously too good for this world and we don’t deserve them. They give us so much unconditional love and joy and they’re basically the best. Case in point? Rolo, a sausage dog who was so happy that his humans were home while self-isolating that he literally sprained his tail from wagging it too much. Ahhhh!

  1. Rolo really, really loves his humans being home. Dogs love being around people. They’re pack animals so they’re happier when their family is all together in one place. Basically, pups are having the time of their lives now that everyone is working from home, and Rolo is no different.
  2. One day his tail just… stopped working. According to the dog’s owner Emma, Rolo has been in seventh heaven so much that his tail stopped working one day. They took him to the vet for examination and found out that he sprained the thing out of pure happiness! “So my dog has been so happy that everyone is home for quarantine, that his tail has stopped working, so we went to the vet and the vet said β€˜he had sprained his tail from excessively wagging it’,” she wrote on Twitter.
  3. Don’t worry, he’s doing just fine. Rolo isn’t in any discomfort. Apparently a dog tail sprain only takes about a week to heal and in the meantime, he’s got some pain meds to make sure he’s chillin’. “For those asking, he is currently on pain relief and the vet said he should be healed within a week. This is him on the 2nd day,” Emma shared along with a video in a follow-up post after her original tweet went viral. “He is super happy and there is now movement from side to side but he is struggling to lift it up in the air.”
  4. Bottom line? Dogs are precious and we must protect them at all costs. I can’t say I’ve ever heard of a dog actually spraining its tail from wagging too hard, but clearly it happens and it seriously melts my heart. Aren’t dogs the best?
