According to pet wellness experts Rover, dogs have a favorite person, and it's not always a primary caregiver. Dogs tend to bond with the person who gives them the most attention.

The Rover website stated: "In a family with two parents and two kids, the dog may favor the parent who fills their bowl every morning and takes them for a walk every evening. In addition, physical affection solidifies the bond between dog and person."

Cannoli's video exploits quickly gained popularity on the internet, attracting animal lovers from across the platform. It has received over 1.2 million views and 123,800 likes so far.

One user, Maddy, commented: "My friends in there." smitchell13 said: "Does Nana not know we have a full day of ACTIVITIES planned?" And corah_etc added: "My dog sits next to the guest bed silently staring until they show signs of life and then pounces lol."

Brian Bradley wrote: "Mine would've been in there sleeping with her." And _LNB_ said: "What is it with all dogs going crazy foe their grandmas?!!" Anne Marie added: "My dog has to sleep with his grandparents or no one gets sleep!!"

Another user, sunflowercs3623, commented: "Aww my golden has a nana he loves so much!" And Abigail Beauvais said: "I'd say my dog do the same, but if one of them isn't allowed to sleep over with gram, they would burn the house down."

Bash Footh wrote: "Our dog Hershey insists on sleeping with Grandma which is nice because I get a morning to sleep in a little bit."

Nicole McMahan added: "Haha this is my dog. Except she won't sleep the entire first night because she's so excited for morning ha." And Shannon Askren joked: "Please wake her up I need lovings."
