31 Days of Happiness Countdown: a dog owner secretly filming his husky jumping. (Day 21)

Thanks for stopping by for Day 21 of Upworthy's 31 Days of Happiness Countdown! If this is your first visit, here's the gist: Each day between Dec. 1 and Dec. 31, we're sharing stories we hope will bring joy, smiles, and laughter into our lives and yours. It's been a bit of a challenging year for a lot of us, so why not end it on a high note with a bit of happiness? Check back tomorrow(or click the links at the bottom) for another installment!

Just how delightful are the activities good doggos get up to when they think no one is watching?


On a scale of 1 to 10, where 1 is "unceremonious" and 10 is "sublimely magical" this Husky pupper's morning routine is a 13/10-would-watch-on-loop-until-the-Earth-plummets-into-the-sun.

We promised happiness, and if this doesn't make you happy — well, you may want to see a doctor.

Let's break it down, shall we?

1. Human stealthily approaches with camera.

2. Pup executes a reverse quadruple good boy bounce.

3. Pup stumbles, stops abruptly, and stares off into middle distance, his secret revealed, yet triumphant nonetheless.

2017 was a tough year. There was war, poverty, death, destruction, and Donald Trump's Twitter account. In the face of it all, may we all find the strength to live life like this husky. Unafraid. Unencumbered. Unbowed. By the news. By politics. And by the sneaking suspicion that someone might be watching.

Go forth and find your trampoline.
