'Insanely Cute' Labrador Obsessed With Green Beans Delights Internet

A dog obsessed with green beans has left the internet in stitches after his owner created a simply hilarious video.

The video was shared on r/WhatsWrongWithYourDog on Monday where it has since received more than 24,000 upvotes and hundreds of comments.

The 25-second video features Kasey the English Black Labrador grabbing various green beans. Kasey lives with his owner Kevin Nolan in Westchester, New York.

Nolan told Newsweek: "Kasey has always been the most gentle dog ever but when it comes to green beans if you hold any up for him to jump, he will be sure he doesn't miss them on his first chomp."

A few years earlier, one of Nolan's videos of Kasey enjoying a green bean gained viral attention, and so he decided to create what he calls a "chompilation" of his pup grabbing the green beans.

While green beans may seem like an unusual canine snack, the American Kennel Club (AKC) say that green beans are safe for dogs to eat, and they seem to love them too.

"Chopped, steamed, raw or canned, all types of green beans are safe for dogs to eat, as long as they are plain," said the AKC: "Green beans are not only safe for dogs, veterinarians also recommend them as a healthy treat."

In stitches at the video, Redditors headed to the comments. One said: "From gentle to nom-nom eyes in 0.0001 seconds," while another wrote: "Dogs always eat like we haven't fed them in 30 days."

Another viewer said it was "the video I didn't know I needed."

"This is insanely cute," said another commenter.

Green beans are packed with vitamins and minerals, including protein, iron, calcium, and vitamins B6, A, C, and K. While your pup might not necessarily need these extra nutrients, they can still be a perfect nutritional alternative to dog biscuits.

According to VCA Animal Hospitals, around 25-30 percent of American canines are obese. This can have a devastating impact on dogs, leading to issues such as cancer, faster degeneration of joints, urinary bladder stones, and premature death.

If you're concerned about your pet's weight, it is always a good idea to consult your vet for advice.

"Pause this video at any point for a laugh," said another commenter on the viral post.

Another Redditor joked that the video was like the "dog version of the shark in Jaws."

"I can't stop giggling," joked another viewer: "The face. The sound."

"I love seeing any video of Kasey go viral especially since he's getting older now," said Nolan: "So any kind words in the comments, people telling us how happy our videos make them, and even some video reactions of people laughing at our videos makes it so much fun putting time and effort into new ideas."
