Meet Maggie. She’s a 19-year-old rat terrier and she sneezes like a horse that just huffed a healthy amount of helium. Her sneeze is possibly the most ridiculous dog sneeze in the history of dog sneezes. Of course, all dog sneezes are ridiculous in their own way. Like human sneezes, the involuntary expulsion of air from the nose and mouth due to irritation of one’s nostrils is a snowflake of a body function, each unique to the person/animal. But Maggie? Oh, Maggie — her sneeze is unlike any sneeze ever captured on camera.
If a human sneezed like Maggie, they’d be called out for hamming it up, but we know Maggie’s sneeze is pure. She’s an old lady, this Maggie. She’s 133-years-old in dog years, but her sneezes are as vivacious as when she was 70. Maggie won’t let her ancient age get in the way of a good sneeze.
Just look at her: one eye closed, head cocked back — she knows it’s coming, and so does her owner, but there’s nothing that can be done. Just let it happen. Let Maggie blow germs out her cute mouth and into the air at 100 MPH of silliness.
We thank you, Maggie. We thank you for giving us your perfect, ridiculous sneeze.
