In the videoshared on TikTok on Tuesday by the owner of the dog under the username Karoli.n1a, the cocker spaniel can be seen hiding something in her mouth as she looks at her owner with an “innocent look” on her face, before her owner opens her mouth to find her hiding her sandwich between her teeth.
The hilarious clip, which has since been shared nearly 9,000 times on the platform, comes with a caption that says, “No, I didn’t steal your sandwich.”
For those of you wondering, yes, dogs can eat bread.
According to the American Kennel Club (AKC), dogs can safely eat bread in much the same way humans do, albeit in moderation.
Plain white and wheat bread is generally safe for dogs to eat, provided they don’t have allergies, and it usually doesn’t cause an upset stomach.
As long as your dog is getting a complete and balanced diet and is getting enough exercise, it won’t hurt to give him bread as a treat from time to time, but it won’t help him either. That’s because bread is essentially just a filler food and doesn’t contain nutrients that aren’t already provided by your dog’s food.
Also, bread is packed with carbohydrateswhich can put your dog on the path to obesity if you are not careful about your portions and treat frequency.
The video has since gone viral, attracting animal lovers from all over the platform and has garnered over 3.2 million views and 181,400 likes to date.
One user, Michelle 211, commented, “He didn’t steal it. He kept it for you so no one else would steal it.” And John Berry wrote, “I’m just keeping it warm for you.” Matthell17 added: “I regularly have that innocent look on my cocker spaniel.”
Ric Malkin argued, “It could be anyone’s sandwich, let’s face it,” while glav said, “the evidence is circumstantial at best.”
Another user mais commented, “I can never tell if my cocker spaniel has that [eaten] because he hides it so well, but when they give you puppy eyes it’s hard to tell them out.” And Olaf the Count said, ‘She’s innocent! Look at her eyes.”
U2Ginger wrote, “Omg what a love bug. How could you be annoyed by that face.” And Sarah Jane Williamso said, “My dog just did that to my husband’s gammon!”
