Family Stuck At Home Notices Their Dog’s Tail Has Stopped Working

"The vet said ‘he had sprained his tail from excessively wagging it’" 😂❤🏠

In recent days, Emma Smith and her family have been hunkering down at home to help curb the spread of the coronavirus. But while quarantine isn't many people's idea of a good time, there is one person in her family who feels differently.

Smith's adorable dog Rolo is thrilled about having everyone at home full-time.

Perhaps a little too thrilled, in fact.


Emma Smith took to Twitter the other day to share something unusual that happened after the family started spending all day at home — Rolo’s tail suddenly stopped working, and they weren't sure why.

Concerned, Smith and her family brought Rolo to the vet.

The diagnosis? “[Rolo] has been so happy that everyone is home for quarantine […] he had sprained his tail from excessively wagging it,” Smith wrote.

Rolo had hit excitement overload — and his sweet little tail needed a rest.

As you'll see, Rolo is happy and his tail still sways, but not with the vigor it did before:

Fortunately, as Smith notes, the dog's condition isn't so dire. After a week of pain relief medicine and rest, Rolo should be back to his old tail-wagging self again.

But in the meantime, he's still getting plenty of affection from his doting family:

While there's no telling how long the quarantine will last, it's fair to say that Rolo will be loving every minute of it.
