Dogs are sweet, loving creatures. Therefore, all dogs deserve to be treated with as much love and respect as possible. Like many other dog parents, Aiden Mann knows exactly how important it is to be kind and gentle to his dogs, Lola and Plum.

Plum was born blind and deaf, so the world is much different for her than it is for her sister. Because of this, Mann knows that he has to be extra careful around her to make her feel as safe as possible. So, he posted an adorable video showing how he wakes her up from an afternoon nap.

Mann cannot touch Plum to wake her up like he can with Lola. Touching her could easily scare her and stress her out. So, he had to learn new ways to interact with Plum to make her feel as comfortable as possible.

Many of his fans on social media were curious about how he wakes up his sleeping pup, so he posted a video on multiple platforms of social media, including TikTok, Instagram, and Facebook. Now, his video has gone viral all over the internet. In fact, the heartwarming moment between him and his dog has even brought tears to many followers.

How Does He Wake Plum?

To wake his sweet dog, Mann slowly approaches her. He lies on the ground beside Plum and gently blows on her face. Blowing on her is a much calmer way to wake her than petting her.

At first, Plum is a little startled by the sudden feeling. She wakes up instantly, looking a bit confused about what just happened. But then, as she approaches Mann, he reaches out to her. With his touch, she can tell that he’s her dad, so she calms down a bit.

Once she realizes that Mann is the one that woke her, she happily seeks his attention. All she wants is love from him, so the end of the video shows Mann and Plum playing together. It’s such a touching moment between the two of them, which is what caused so many people to tear up.

In Mann’s description on TikTok, he wrote “yes I know I have a hole in my shirt”, which doesn’t fit the video at all. In fact, no one would’ve even noticed the hole in his shirt if he hadn’t mentioned it. The most important part of the video is Plum. Mann’s interactions with the sweet dog are way more significant than what he’s wearing.

This adorable video reminds us that dogs deserve as much love as possible. We should always be kind to our dogs because they are always kind to us.
