Garrett Johnson was in charge of the home and taking care of the family dog, Oscar, while his parents went on vacation. As his parents left for their cruise, his mom repeatedly told him to take good care of Oscar. He proved to his parents that he was responsible and creative with hilarious video he sent as an update to his parents, featuring him and Oscar.
The short video starts by Garrett asking Oscar, a Shi Tzu and a Pomeranian mix, what he would like to do. The camera turns to Oscar’s adorable face and then the fun begins. Ray LaMontagne’s “You Are The Best Thing” song starts to play and Oscar takes off running. Oscar was treated like royalty eating at the table, watching movies and unlimited playtime.
The two were having a blast having the home all to themselves.
Garrett’s mother was overjoyed to receive the video and “she cried laughing,” he told the Dodo. Thousands of others have enjoyed the video as well after it was posted on Twitter. The video was posted with the caption, “My parents went on a cruise and left me home alone. My mom kept telling me to take good care of our dog Oscar. So I sent her this.” The video has been viewed over 55K times.
I think it is safe to say that he passed the test for caring for Oscar.
Watch the adorable video below.
