VIDEO: Abbotsford dog goes viral on TikTok

Video of Oaklie holding a towel and entering pool trends on social media platform

The recent hot weather has made even local dogs find innovative ways to cool off.

And one dog has gone viral on TikTok for his polite, but firm insistence that he needs to enter the doggie pool at 6:30 a.m.

Oaklie, a nine-month old silver lab in Abbotsford, has quickly become a big star on the social media app and a recent video of him holding a towel in his mouth and seemingly asking for permission to enter the pool has collected over 2.5 million views.

Owner Giselle Tremblay-McEachern said she shot the video yesterday (Wednesday) after Oaklie and his sibling Charlie (11-year-old chocolate lab) had played in the pool for much of the day on Tuesday. She said they did use that towel to dry off Oaklie on Tuesday, but said it was a newly acquired behaviour.

Tremblay-McEachern started the account for the dogs back in March, and said she’s been amazed at the following the duo have collected online. The account has over 13,000 followers and has received 685,000 likes.

“Social media is all new to me,” she said. “I just got back on Facebook after seven years. After my first or second TikTok I was at like 1,000 followers and my kids were like, ‘oh my gosh’. With this video my daughter messaged me at like 4:30 this morning and said I have a million views. And then by this afternoon it was 2 million, it’s crazy.”

She said the account was created because she’s very passionate about her pooches.

“I love my dogs,” she said. “My kids say I love my dogs more than them, which isn’t true. But they’re very much like my kids and I treat them like they’re my own children. I buy them birthday presents, they have birthday parties and I just started the account because I’m always taking videos of my dogs and they’re entertaining.”

She said she finds the online fame amusing.

“I’m a 48-year-old woman with kids that are of the age that everything is about being popular and being on TikTok,” she said. “I never thought I’d have a viral video, I thought my kids might.”
