Dog Jumps for Joy When Visitors Arrive

April Livingston | May 27th, 2018

Bayla the yellow Labrador just loves her family. She has lived with them nearly her entire life, so you could say she is pretty attached to them. Her favorite thing is to cuddle with them and wants to be around them at every opportunity. She has two human parents and two human brothers. The brothers lived in their parents home until they moved out a few years ago. So, Bayla does not get to see them every day anymore. So, when they come to visit it is a very big deal for her.

Joey Plotkin, who is Bayla’s owner, says she just loves to cuddle with her family. She doesn’t realize how big she is and often climbs on top of her human family and wants to lay in their laps. It’s like she thinks she is still a little puppy. Though she loves her human parents, she gets VERY excited when her human brother stop by the family home for a visit. When her brothers came for a visit recently, her parents filmed her hilarious reaction to seeing them approach the home.

Even before she could actually see them from the front door, she was aware they were coming. Then, when one of her brothers came around the corner she could hardly contain herself. She was so excited that she quite literally began to jump for joy. Then, her second brother made an appearance and the jumping continued. She just couldn’t stop jumping over and over again. While her parents say she is typically excited to see any visitor to their home, her reaction to seeing her brothers is second to none. Her brothers typically visit a few times a month and it is the best part of Bayla’s day, as she gets to snuggle and spend time with all of her family!
