Adorable moment service dog meets Dug from 'Up' at Disney World
Disney World is often referred to as 'The Happiest Place on Earth' for children and adults alike - but it turns out that it is also true for hardworking doggos. Prepare yourselves, because your hearts are about to become full.
While visiting Disney's Animal Kingdom park, Jessica Paulsen of Nashville, Tennessee, rewarded her hardworking service dog Henry with a character meet with Dug from Up. (Of course, it was just a person in a costume, but we all suspend our disbelief when we're at Disney.)
And in what has quickly become my favorite video of 2019, Henry expressed pure delight at meeting Dug.
Check out the incredible character meet below:
As Henry approaches the furry star of the 2009 animated classic, his tail wags uncontrollably with excitement. The two-year-old dog then shows Dug his Kevin toy (swipe to second video).
The video was shared to Henry and Jessica's Instagram account, kinghenryofnashville, to their 115,000+ followers - and, as of this writing, the video has amassed more than 22,000 likes and nearly 600 comments.
Jessica captioned the post: "I have just met you and I love you
"Furiends please note that Henry is a working dog but Disney days are long and character meets are a great reward for all of Henry’s hard work. You can learn more about his job in our highlight labeled 'working'."
For another playful pup, check out this dog that drove his owner's car around in circles for an hour:
Per The Tennessean, Jessica has a condition known as postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome, which can cause fainting and rapid heart rate.
Paulsen documents her personal journey and life with Henry on YouTube and at HenryTheHelper.com, where she often answering fans’ questions.
And luckily for all of us, Jessica has posted more shots of Henry's winter vay-cay to Disney World, including...

I think it's safe to say that Jessica and Henry make the best of friends, just like Russell and Dug.
