We can never deny that all dogs are smart in their own adorable way. Some canines can walk on a tightrope without fear, while others can master the game of Jenga in a matter of days. However, when it comes to being the smartest in town, this sweet Labrador Retriever sure takes home the crown.
Artie, as his parents fondly call him, is a pure bundle of joy. He is generally a bubbly, little guy who loves playing with his mom and his human siblings. But this adorable furball turns into a timid pooch every time he is faced with his worst enemy: the carpet.
While humans enjoy the smoothness of the rug, Artie definitely does not feel the same. The adorable pooch has no problem walking on tiles, hardwood floors, grass, and any other such surfaces. But as for carpets, it’s a whole different story.
It might be because of the weird texture of the carpet or the scary germs living on the unvacuumed surface. Either way, no amount of emergency can make Artie cross that dreaded carpet. However, one day, Artie decided that it was time to get over his fear of the dreaded carpet.
Artie’s mom documented the whole milestone as she watched the adorable pooch on the other side of the room. In the short video, Artie can be seen looking all horrified at the carpeted room in front of him. His mom, on the other hand, was encouraging him all the way, ensuring him that there is nothing to be worried about.
A few seconds later, Artie turned around and seemed to give up the fight. However, he then braved the carpeted room again and entered the room backward! Obviously, if he can’t see the carpet, then it won’t be able to attack him!
His witty and amusing way of conquering his fears sure earned giggles around the room. His video has also circulated the web in just a matter of hours. Good boy, Artie!
Watch his witty solution here.
