A dog’s morning dose of Zoomies has wowed the internet as their owners have been sharing daily videos of their cheerful pet running around.
Self-proclaimed “puppy parents” from San Diego, Sheena and Sunit Shah regularly upload videos of their Pomsky — a cross between a Pomeranian and a Husky — to their TikTok account @sapphie_the_pomsky.
The daily ritual has led to the Shahs declaring their dog Sapphire the “QUEEN OF THE ZOOMIES” in their latest video shared on Thursday.
But it’s her clip from earlier in the week that has resonated with viewers and has been viewed more than five million times.
“Just another day of my morning ZOOMIES,” they captioned the footage, which can be seen here.
Zoomies is the slang term for Frenetic Random Activity Periods (FRAPs), the American Kennel Club (AKC) explained.
They described them as “those unmistakable bursts of energy that dogs occasionally have.”
They found that Zoomies often exhibit “frantic, repetitive behaviors” such as turning around and running in circles.
Put simply, it is the “excess accumulation of energy that dogs hold on to, which is then released in a great burst”.
It’s normal for dogs, but there may be certain times of the day that trigger the behavior, e.g. B. early in the morning.
“Zoomies are most common in puppies and younger dogs, but the phenomenon can sometimes affect dogs of all ages and breeds,” they confirmed.
As the AKC wrote, 2-year-old Sapphire appears to be getting a big case of sunrise energy, with several clips titled “MORNING ZOOMIES.”
Commenting on the most viral video, Chema gushed, “I’ll always love the pause and resume mid-zooms.”
Mayonnaise said, “If they stop and then continue, I die every time.”
Ernesto wrote, “Wow and I thought my sister’s dog was crazy when she was doing zoomies.”
Corgi fan number 1 thought, “When I think Zoomie breeds, I think Pomeranian breeds and Husky breeds, so… makes sense lol.”
A Pomsky is described by pet food website Purina as a “designer crossbreed” that’s gaining popularity “because of its cute looks.”
The website explained what makes them so appealing: “The result is a cute ball of fur that looks like a mini wolf but is less demanding than its Siberian Husky parent.”
