The internet has been left in stitches after a video was uploaded showing a dog and a puppy trying sparkling water.
In a viral video shared on TikTok, which can be seen here, two dogs can be seen tasting the bubbly water from a small container.
Stephanie Wagner, from Saskatchewan, who uploaded the clip, said in the caption. “That one time I gave the dogs sparkling water.”
She added the hashtag #whyisitspicy.
In the video, a black labrador can be seen quickly taking a drink from the container before giving a somewhat bemused look.
Likely needing some refreshment, the dog soon returns and starts to lap up the water and, again, gives a stunned look.
Seconds later, a puppy comes into the shot and also starts to drink from the container.
Unlike the larger dog, the puppy does not even attempt to hide its dislike for the sparkling water and immediately shakes its head in disgust.
A man can be heard asking, “Why is it spicy?”
Since being shared earlier this month, the post has attracted some 562,200 views and 69,000 likes on TikTok.
Most of those who commented on the most sympathized with the pooches and also revealed their disdain for sparkling water.
One TikTok user said: “Someone on a different video described it as tastic like TV static and, honestly, it’s the most accurate description I’ve heard.”
Another said: “Love the parent trying to be polite and [the] pup immediately just gagging.”
A third posted: I’m laughing because I’m surprised your dogs hate the sparkling water. They’re maybe like ‘mommy, really?'”
While a fourth person simply commented: “The look is precious.”
Newsweek has contacted Wagner for comment.
It is not surprising that dogs are one of the most popular subjects on TikTok, given that millions of Americans own at least one pooch.
According to the American Veterinary Medical Association, 48.2 million homes in the US own at least one dog in 2018.
It also found that there were 76,811,305 dogs in American homes in 2018 and that the average number owned per household that year was 1.6 per home.
This month a video of a dog being a “brat” after declining to have its dinner went viral on TikTok with more than 1.3 million views.
The video showed the dog being spoon-fed a scoop of what it believed were treats but was in fact being taken from its bowl.
A message laid over the video read: “My dog being a brat. He wants a treat but won’t finish his dinner [crying laughing emoji].”
