A woman who decided to grab dinner at a local restaurant was lucky enough to catch a fellow diner on an adorable date with his very well-behaved dog. Gemma Colón from New York City thought she was just getting a tasty meal, but instead, she also got to witness one of the sweetest and most precious interactions between the man and his four-legged best friend. I haven’t seen anything quite so adorable in a very long time.
the purest friendship i ever witnessed 🥺 #nyc #dog #bestfriend #SyncYourMiO
- Gemma shared a video of the interaction on TikTok. In the clip, you can see the man sipping wine while his pooch perches on a yellow metal chair directly across from him, happy as he can be. He occasionally sips from a bowl of water provided just for him and is just generally a Very Good Boy. Be still my heart!
- Gemma found the moment incredibly heartwarming. As she told The Dodo: “I was presented with one of the most unexpectedly heartwarming views. I noticed this dog seated across from his owner, perched up on a chair, acting like an absolute proper gentleman.”
- She couldn’t get over how well-behaved the dog was. While many dogs are obedient, this man’s dog was able to hang out for the entire dinner while minding his manners the entire time. “[The man] was doing a crossword puzzle and sipping a glass of red wine with his meal. His date (the dog) was enjoying his own bowl of water, which he slurped politely,” she recalled. “It was really amazing how well-behaved the pup was. I saw better table manners displayed by this dog than I’ve seen from some humans.”
- The man takes his dog out all the time. While Gemma didn’t speak to the man herself, she did hear him talking to a server and he said that the dog comes pretty much everywhere with him. “I heard a waitress comment on how good the dog was at one point, and the man replied saying he brings the dog with him everywhere,” Gemma said. “It definitely seemed like a very pleasant date, with lovely company.” How adorable is that?!
