Unlike many dogs, Akira isn’t afraid of the vet. The friendly golden is happy to wait her turn at her local animal hospital, especially if it means she gets to watch some of her favorite squirrel videos on her dad’s iPhone.
When VCA Panther Lake veterinary hospital manager Mel Cies recently caught Akira calmly watching her favorite show, she couldn’t believe her eyes.
“Never in my 7 years working in the vet industry as a hospital manager have I seen a dog so calm at the vet!” Cies told The Dodo. “It was so amazing!”
One of Akira’s favorite activities is watching the squirrels around her backyard. Having noticed his pup’s affinity for squirrels, Akira’s dad, Darin Beam, figured squirrel videos might be an easy way to entertain her. These days, the videos occasionally serve as a reliable source of entertainment for the sweet dog.
“If we ever need her to stay still, we show her a squirrel video,” Beam told The Dodo.
When she’s not busy keeping an eye on the squirrels, Akira loves spending time with her parents, lounging with them in their backyard.
Akira’s family can’t believe how much their funny, easygoing dog has already changed their lives.
“Akira has really been a blessing!” Beam said. “My wife couldn’t imagine life without her now!”
The 4-year-old pup has so many moments to look forward to with her loving family. And if the journey is ever stressful or monotonous, Akira just needs a squirrel video, and she’ll be good to go.
