Google Street View is sometimes very helpful, sometimes very creepy, and occasionally extremely delightful, like when it catches people doing some unexpected stuff on camera. But when it catches a puppy? One hundred times better.
A little dog is winning everyone's hearts for chasing a Google Street View car down a road in Kumage, Japan. The whole episode is documented forever, or at least until they send another car down this tiny dog-guarded road.
You can see the moment the doggo spots its prey:
And the chase is on!
SORA News reports that the dog has become a bit of a sensation on the sorts of blogs that obsessively catalogue Google Street View.
People are writing it loving tributes, like:
“I laughed so hard when I saw how far it chased the car!”
“It’s so cute!”
“It looks like it’s saying, ‘What’s this that’s come down my road?'”
“As soon as it sees the odd-looking car, it knows something’s up.”
But who wouldn't love a pup this determined?
It won't give up!
It's going to get to the bottom of this!
"Excuse me, I have some questions, please pull over!"
Dog is following Google to the end of the road.
Which is quite literally a dead end.
Can you imagine being brave enough to follow a strange car to the end of the road just to see what happens?
Because this good dog did.
Once the car seemingly parks at the end of this stretch of their mapping duties, the dog disappears. Presumably, it trotted back to its person after sniffing the intruders.
Or maybe it was sucked up into an alternate dimension:
If there's a dog who can handle that kind of adventure, this is it.
