In these trying times, it’s important that we find nuggets of happiness in unexpected places, from unexpected sources. Fortunately, this is where the internet comes in.
Cooper Fleishman, the technical editorial director for Mic, recently tweeted a text from his mother that we can all agree is absolutely perfect in every possible way.
The text concerned some neighbor’s dogs, who were having a “dog party” on the roof.
I know what you’re thinking: “A DOG PARTY?? I need more information.”
(Also, you’re probably thinking, “I DON’T KNOW WHAT THIS MEANS, BUT IT MAKES ME FEEL PURE AND HAPPY.” Also, you might be thinking, “I am concerned for these dogs.” All are acceptable reactions.)
Well, you’re in luck. Cooper, being a good reporter, insisted that his mother send follow up texts about the “dog party” on the roof. And his mom, being a dutiful and concerned neighbor, obliged by telling him of her efforts to get the dogs to go back inside the house.
Cooper’s mom said that she called the dog’s owner at work and tried to tell her, as gently as possible, that her dogs were on the roof.
While she waited for her neighbor to return home, Cooper’s mom attempted to bring in reinforcements to lure the dogs back into the house (much to Cooper’s dismay).
Naturally, she said she tried to reason with the dogs first, like any good mom — but the dogs were enjoying their roof party far too much to heed her commands.
Cooper’s mom said that she and the random passersby attempted to throw dog treats into the open window in order to encourage the pups to go back inside … which didn’t work.
Fortunately, the dogs’ owner soon arrived home and was able to coax the dogs safely back inside.
The backstory? Apparently the owner was trying to give her dogs a bit of fresh air while she was out of the house — a plan which ended up backfiring when her pups decided they wanted MORE fresh air.
Not surprisingly, Twitter users were ecstatic about the “dog party,” as well as Cooper’s mom’s thorough and detailed updates on the situation.
When dogs somehow end up on a roof, looking confused, the jokes practically write themselves.
This is exactly the sort of wholesome #FridayContent we were all looking for. Thank you, internet.
