Clearly, ’tis the season to be cheerful for winter dog, who was filmed watching his neighbor’s spectacular display of festive lights. The video, in which it was uploaded for the first time Reddit by Winter’s owner, who posted under the handle its_muri, has been spreading much-appreciated seasonal cheer on social media.
“My Samoyed loves to actively look at the Christmas lights every time we walk her,” Winter’s owner wrote in his Reddit post.
Winter can be seen in the video looking in awe from the edge of the property, which has been decorated with an array of illuminated lights. Christmas exhibitionsincluding an illuminated reindeer or two.
Dogs should have plenty of holiday cheer when December 25th rolls around. A survey of 2,000 pet owners commissioned by MetLife Insurance found that the average four-legged friend can expect receive gifts with an average value of $50 this year.
For now, Winter seems happy to simply absorb and enjoy the eye-catching holiday displays on offer in her neighborhood.
Winter’s owner told him Newsweek that the dog “loves Christmas and lights in particular.”
The Samoyed currently lives in Sydney, Australia but this Christmas he will go “downhill” to spend the holidays with his owner’s partner and his parents.
While Christmas lights are among his favorite things, Winter has other interests as well, according to his human companion.
“His favorite thing is to sniff and step on water like in bowls or puddles or buckets etc.” said its owner, adding “We don’t know why he does that.”
For now, however, it’s Winter’s vision he’s been watching Christmas lights peacefully with the kind of reaction of amazement usually reserved for a child, which has people talking on social media.
