The dog’s reaction to being asked to sleep in its own bed is heart-melting

An adorable video of a dog’s ecstatic reaction after being allowed to sleep in his owner’s bed after initially being told to sleep in his own bed has gone viral on TikTok with over 2.1 million views.

In the video posted by Laura Grayson, Kima, the rescue dog, can be seen walking into her owner’s bedroom and told to lie down in her own bed. She looks at her owners sadly before slowly walking to her bed. Her owner then says “I’m just kidding, come here” and Kima rushes to jump onto the bed.

One user commented, “The relief.”

According to a 2017 American Kennel Club (AKC) study, 45 percent of pet owners share their bed or bedroom with their pet. While some research shows that sleeping with your pet can increase relaxation and reduce anxiety, other research suggests that the different dog and human sleep cycles could affect sleep quality.

A 2017 study in the journal Human nature titled “A Multispecies Approach to Co-Sleeping: Integrating Human-Animal Co-Sleeping Practices into Our Understanding of Human Sleep” looked at the difference between letting a dog sleep in a bed or bedroom versus letting a child sleep.

The study pointed out that sleeping in the same bed or bedroom with our pets is not a modern trend.

“Australian Aborigines often slept outside next to their dogs and/or dingoes for warmth and protection from evil spirits,” it says.

The researchers found that one negative aspect of co-sleeping with a pet could be the aggravation of allergies.

“There is also a risk of disease transmission, both dog-to-human and human-to-dog. However, such transmission is rare.”

Disrupted sleep quality is another reason why some pet owners choose not to sleep with their pets.

“Dogs are polyphasic sleepers,” says the AKC, “and have an average of three sleep/wake cycles per night hour, while humans are monophasic sleepers (one sleep period over a 24-hour cycle). Dogs remain alert to sounds even when they are asleep, which can make them lighter sleepers than their humans.”

Despite the negatives, the study explains that many owners believe the positives outweigh the negatives. Sleeping with your pets can reduce anxiety and provide a sense of security that allows for stress-free deep sleep. Likewise, dogs make the perfect bed warmers in cold weather, and who doesn’t want to wake up with a happy dog?

TikTok users shared their joy at the footage of the deceived dog.

Liz Little said, “She’s like ‘OH THANK YOU GOOD!!!!'” while Teri Tesmer commented, “Fastest ‘get here’ in history.”

Rachael Damron420 wrote, “Didn’t even finish the whole sentence before she did the dash.”
