The video began with what appeared to be a screengrab of a text message from the user’s neighbor, who shared a photo of a dog standing on snow-covered ground and asked: “Good morning Desiree! Is this your dog?”

The owner was later seen on her way to retrieve the dog, who had seemingly “decided to go on a little walkie by herself.”

Upon being discovered, the dog was seen running toward the owner, who said: “Excuse me little missy, what do you think you’re doing?…are you here to see your boyfriend?” as another dog is seen in the distance.

The owner’s dog was seen looking up and jumping toward the owner and sitting on command before the video ended.

The dog in the latest viral video appeared to be unapologetic about her “bad” behavior, but do dogs ever feel guilty?

In an article for VCA, one of North America’s largest animal hospital chains operating over 1,000 animal hospitals, veterinarians Dr. Debra Horwitz, Dr. Gary Landsberg, Dr. Theresa DePorter and Dr. Jamie Joswich said you should not assume that “your dog knows that he did something wrong just because he lays down and rolls over on his back.

“In fact, he probably has no idea what you want, he just hopes this grand canine gesture of appeasement will work,” they added.

The veterinarians said: “Often, submissive or appeasement signals are misinterpreted by owners to be indicative of ‘guilt’ following an undesirable behavior.”

But dogs displaying such postures are “likely responding to discernible human body language or past association with punishment and are attempting to lessen predictable forthcoming punishment based on previous experience. Simply put, the dog is saying ‘don’t hurt me’,” the veterinarians explained.

The latest video has left TikTokers in stitches.

In a comment that got 10,100 likes, user Dak said: “As her lawyer, she is innocent.”

Mander said: “Oh she knew she was in trouble [crying laughing emoji],” while user3053762300838 said: “Just wanted to go play with her friends, she a good dog.”

The original poster replied that her dog may have been saying “‘Oh umm this? Ya, I was just… see the thing is… ummm… mum.. soooo don’t be mad but…'[crying laughing emojis].”

Julianna A said: “I can just feel her embarrassment when her mom showed up and I know she wants to say ‘he’s my forever, mom, you don’t understand!'”

Rachel Ann wrote: “Boyfriend is like ‘I told you she’d be mad’ [crying laughing emoji].”

Newsweek has contacted the original poster for comment. The latest video hasn’t been independently verified.
