Couple shares hilarious viral video challenge to find out which person your dog loves best

A dog is a man's best friend, so the saying goes. On the other hand, many dogs actually show a preference for women over men. We also know that dogs are famously loyal to their owners. So what happens when a dog is forced to choose between its human parents?

Judging by this viral TikTok video, a fair bit of hilarity.

TikTok user @kamilandra_ shared a video with the hashtag #dogchallengerunaway, which calls on people to "Run in opposite directions to see who your dog loves more..." In the video, the couple's Yorkshire terrier is placed between its owners, who simultaneously run away from it in opposite directions. Forced to choose who to follow, the doggo looks back and forth, barks a couple of times, then starts spinning around in circles. It stops facing one owner, then spins the other direction and stops facing the other owner. Then it keeps doing the same thing over and over, clearly caught up in a fit of indecision.


Impressive show of equal loyalty there, pups.

@kamilandra_

The loyalty is real!! #fyp #loyaldog #yorkshireterrierlove❤ #dogchallengerunaway #dogchallenge

The video has been viewed more than 10 million times. People adore the sweet pupper's faithfulness to both of its owners. Comments on the video range from "You broke your dog!" to "He's playing spin the bottle with himself!" to "He said, "I CHOOSE ME!!!!'"

Many dogs would show a clear preference for one person over another, which is part of what makes this dog's reaction so sweet (and kind of sad, in a "Sophie's Choice" sort of way).

What would really be funny is to see someone try to pull this on a cat. You know a cat would just sit there, staring straight ahead, silently judging us humans for our ridiculousness.

Dogs are something else. We definitely don't deserve them.

Being married is like being half of a two-headed monster. It's impossible to avoid regular disagreements when you're bound to another person for the rest of your life. Even the perfect marriage (if there was such a thing) would have its daily frustrations. Funnily enough, most fights aren't caused by big decisions but the simple, day-to-day questions, such as "What do you want for dinner?"; "Are we free Friday night?"; and "What movie do you want to see?"

Here are some hilarious tweets that just about every married couple will understand.

A man told me gun laws would create more 'soft targets.' He summed up the whole problem.

As far as I know, there are only two places in the world where people living their lives are referred to as 'soft targets.'

Only in America are kids in classrooms referred to as "soft targets."

On the Fourth of July, a gunman opened fire at a parade in quaint Highland Park, Illinois, killing at least six people, injuring dozens and traumatizing (once again) an entire nation.

My family member who was at the parade was able to flee to safety, but the trauma of what she experienced will linger. For the toddler with the blood-soaked sock, carried to safety by a stranger after being pulled from under his father's bullet-torn body, life will never be the same.

There's a phrase I keep seeing in debates over gun violence, one that I can't seem to shake from my mind. After the Uvalde school shooting, I shared my thoughts on why arming teachers is a bad idea, and a gentleman responded with this brief comment:

"Way to create more soft targets."

She bought the perfect wedding dress that went viral on TikTok. It was only $3.75.

Lynch is part of a growing crowd of newlyweds going against the regular wedding tradition of spending loads of money.

Making a priceless memory.

At first glance, one might think that Jillian Lynch wore a traditional (read: expensive) dress to her wedding. After all, it did look glamorous on her. But this 32-year-old bride has a secret superpower: thrifting.

Lynch posted her bargain hunt on TikTok, sharing that she had been perusing thrift shops in Ohio for four days in a row, with the actual ceremony being only a month away. Lynch then displays an elegant ivory-colored Camila Coelho dress. Fitting perfectly, still brand new and with the tags on it, no less.

You can find that exact same dress on Revolve for $220. Lynch bought it for only $3.75.
