Watch This If You Want to Brighten Your Day

Rottweiler puppies are awesome. Kangaroos are awesome, too. But you know what’s even more awesome? Rottweiler puppies and kangaroos playing together like best friends. All together, now: Awwwwwwwwwww!

Ed Trindall, a resident of Perth, Australia, recently uploaded the video below to his Facebook page — and unlike engagement videos, I have absolutely no problem with videos of adorable animals going viral, because OMG IT’S SO CUTE I CAN BARELY STAND IT. The Rottweiler’s name is Trooper, while the kangaroo goes by the moniker Blue the Roo; put ‘em both together, and, well… you’ve got something special.

Here’s what I imagine the kangaroo is thinking throughout the whole thing, broken down by time stamp:

  • 00:05 — “Can… Can I hug you? Please?”
  • 00:11 — “Seriously, dude, I just want to hug you. Bros before hos, am I right?”
  • 00:15 — “Wait! Where are you going? I thought we were friends!”
  • 00:22 — “Oh. Okay. Getting’ a little friendly here. Down, boy. Down.”
  • 00:36 — “DUDE. I HAVE THE BEST IDEA EVER. I’m going to put you in my pouch, and it’s going to be AWESOME.”
  • 00:38 — “Hrrrrgh… let me… put you… in my pouch…”
  • 00:46 — “Dude, what’d you run away for? It was totally going to work!”
  • 00:49 — “Okay, fine. This game works, too. Haha, got your nose!”
  • 00:55 — “Whoa. Watch the tail, bro. Watch the tail.”
  • 1:04 — “Oh, so we’re doing a cage match now? Awesome! Come at me, brah!”
  • 1:11 — “ Awwww, I love you too, buddy. I love you, too.”

The Rottweiler’s stream of thought, meanwhile, I imagine going something like this:

  • 00:06 — “Uh… no, I would really rather you did not hug me, thank you very much.”
  • 00:13 — “Dude, I said no hugging. I’m outta here.”
  • 00:21 — “JUST KIDDING! I’m back! Let’s play, let’s play, let’s play!”
  • 00:37 — “Okay, not quite what I had in mind…”
  • 00:39 — “Dude, I don’t even think you have a pouch. Isn’t that something only lady-roos have?”
  • 00:47 — “Dude! It was not going to work! You don’t have a pouch!
  • 00:48 — “I’ve got a better idea. TAG! You’re it!”
  • 1:05 — “Totally! Come at me, brah! Braaaaaaaaaaaaah!”
  • 1:10 — “Dude, you’re the best. I love you man.”

Happy long weekend, everyone!
