Dog sprains tail from wagging so much because everyone is home

It's fair to say that, with so many people choosing to self-isolate because of the recent coronavirus pandemic, we're all in need of some positivity right now.

However, for all the housepets in the world, the mass quarantines have actually been an unexpected treat. After all, this means that our furry friends get to spend much more time with us, and we can lavish our attention, love, and care upon them.

This rescue puppy was recently spotted 'smiling' for the camera in an attempt to be adopted:

Indeed, one little dog has gone viral on social media this week, after spraining its tail from wagging it so much over its owners being home during the quarantine.

The dog in question is an adorable little sausage dog who belongs to a woman named Emma Smith. Earlier this week Emma, who hails from Essex in England, took to talk about her over-excitable dog Rolo.

Posting a short video of Rolo, Emma wrote: "So my dog has been so happy that everyone is home for quarantine, that his tail has stopped working, so we went to the vet and the vet said he had sprained his tail from excessively wagging it."

When Emma's followers immediately expressed their concern for the little dog, she provided a thoughtful update for them in the form of another video clip.

She captioned it: "Didn’t expect this [to] happen, for those asking, he is currently on pain relief and the vet said he should be healed within a week, this is him on the 2nd day. He is super happy and there is now movement from side to side but he is struggling to lift it up in the air."

Well it's good to know that Rolo's tail is on the mend. But his story is a reminder of just how important pets are to us at times like this...
