Video of Adorable Puppies Choosing Their Own Names Is Melting Hearts Online
A video of a litter of puppies finding their names in an unusual method has gone popular on TikTok, and it is one of the cutest things we’ve ever seen.
Six little Cavalier King Charles spaniels can be seen at a doorway in footage tweeted by a woman using the handle @Shellysyk.
Text overlaying the footage, which can be watched here, explains that she is “having the puppies choose their own collars, and naming them after the [collar]they pick.”
We see that @Shellysyk, whose TikTok bio states that she is “All about the k9s,” has laid out six different-colored dog collars with names on them. Then, one by one, each puppy goes out and nudges a collar with its nose.
Flower, a puppy that is now known as Flower, chooses a light pink collar.
Cheese is the name of the second pooch, who like yellow. Ninja has a black collar, Olive has a green collar, and Melon has a bright pink collar.
Piggy is the name given to the final puppy who is left with a pale pink collar. Piggy the puppy winks at the camera towards the end of the video.
