This Dog's Reaction To Her Gumby Toy Coming To Life Is All You've Ever Wanted

Jolene's love for Gumby surpasses any love we've ever known.


You may think you love Gumby, but we’re positive Jolene loves Gumby more.

Emily Crisp recorded her golden retriever, Jolene, playing with a stuffed Gumby toy in a viral video posted on Thursday.

The video turns from adorable to downright you’ll-want-to-cry-it’s-so-cute when Crisp’s boyfriend, Ben Mesches, shows up in a Gumby costume.

Jolene’s reaction to the real-life Gumby is, well, perfect. You can see what appears to be pure shock and joy as she sees the living, breathing, giant version of her favorite toy.

Of course, there’s a good chance she was actually just excited to see Ben, but either way, this’ll warm the coldest of hearts:

Isn’t life grand?
