Video of Labrador Puppy Playing Drums Is Melting Hearts Online

A video of a puppy appearing to play a drum has gone viral online, with many finding the footage adorable.

In the clip, shared to TikTok by Imperial Point Animal Hospital, known on the app as Mydelrayvet, we can see a small Labrador puppy sitting in front of an upturned metal bowl.

A staff member at the Florida hospital, whose name badge reads Taylor, can be seen holding the black puppy's arms, before a snare drum soundtrack kicks in.

The puppies arms are then lifted up and down to bang the makeshift drum in time with a soundtrack.

This makes it appear as though the cute pet, whose name is Benji, is drumming away.

The footage, which can be watched here, is made all the more adorable by the animals blasé expression as he hits the drum.

Mydelrayvet captioned the video, writing: "Puppy drums! #ipah #vet #animalhospital #puppy #puppydrums #dogsoftiktok #4u #labpuppy."

The clip has gained lots of traction online since it was posted on August 13, having been viewed by a whopping 28.1 million people and surpassed 5.3 million likes.

More than 31,700 comments have been left beneath the video, with many people sharing their delight at the funny clip.

One TikTok user, Elizabeth Hernandez, wrote: "That dog is going to be huge."

Another person, Taylor, added: "Big boy paws, omg so freaking adorable.."

Emileeemichelleee said: "There's not a single thought behind those eyes."

Senex Phocion joked: "So this is what the vet techs are doing with my puppy while I sit in the parking lot," alongside a string of laughing-face emojis.

Audreyallison gushed: "That is the biggest puppy I have ever seen."

Acidrayne86 said: "Oh my god he could crush me with his fur mittens and honestly I'd be ok with that he's just too cute."

Dennis Ames revealed: "This is why I never worry about leaving my pets over night at the vets."

An account by the name of Michael Tods Sr commented: "Be careful Taylor. I work for a hospital and they discipline employees for putting stuff on social media with the hospital's name on it. Funny video."

To this, the animal hospital responded: "We have permission from the owners for all videos posted."

Another video which recently went viral online shows a Great Dane's peculiar penchant for licking windows.

In the footage, which was posted by Ryanne O'Donnell, we can see the huge pet licking the outside of a window with his tongue, as his ears move to the rhythm.

The camera then cuts to the dog, whose name is Hank, sitting on a sofa with the smaller brown dog's head almost fully engulfed in his mouth.

The clip has so far been watched a whopping 17.1 million times.
