In February 2019, college student Garrett Johnson’s parents went off on a weeklong cruise.
While they were away, they put Garrett in charge of the family dog, Oscar. Garrett’s mom had never been away from the pup for so long, and she was a bit nervous about leaving him. She asked Garrett to send updates about the dog, and Garrett immediately decided to get creative with these updates!
Garrett sent his parents an adorable, well-directed video showing what he and Oscar got up to on their first night together. The hilarious video begins by Garrett asking Oscar:
“So, what do you want to do?”
The rest of the video shows the answer to that question. Garrett and Oscar begin by eating dinner together at the dining room table. Oscar loves getting the chance to eat like a person!
After that, Garrett lets Oscar choose a movie. While they’re watching, Garrett shares some of his snacks with the pup.
After a busy day, Oscar climbs into his dog bed to go to sleep. Garrett makes sure to give Oscar a goodnight kiss before he heads to sleep himself.
Garrett sent the video over to his mom, and she loved it! She told Garrett she cried laughing.
Garrett also decided to post the video on his Twitter and Facebook page to share with his friends. To his shock, the video went viral, receiving thousands of views. Everyone loved seeing what Garrett and Oscar got up to!
“It’s blown me away,” Garrett told The Dodo. “I only had 70 followers, so I was just posting it for my friends. This is unreal.”
Many other Twitter user also sent over photos of their dogs, saying they were Oscar’s twin. It’s amazing how similar some of these pups look.

Tons of people told Garrett how much they loved the video. Other people commented on the fact that Oscar seemed to be a natural actor!
“Oscar is the funniest dog I know,” Garrett said.
Many people asked Garrett to update them on how the week went. He said that everything went well—he and Oscar had a great time together.
“We’re chilling and just hanging out ’til [my parents] come back,” he said. “Life is good.”
Garrett did a great job looking after his family dog—we’re sure his parents will ask him to dog-sit again after seeing this video! If you want to see Garrett and Oscar’s fun night together, check out the video below.
