A dog named Bunny has made everyone’s heart flutter, and it’s all thanks to some of the messages this pet conveys using dedicated buttons.

Downfall on @WhatAboutBunny

People may have seen Bunny through several viral videos posted to the @whataboutbunny TikTok account over the years. Many of these happily show Bunny using dedicated buttons on the floor to pass messages, which her employer trained her to do.

Through these videos, Sheepadoodle has gained more than 8 million followers on TikTok and she has been featured in buzz feed and New York Times.

This method of communication is known as augmentative and alternative communication (AAC), which “means all the ways that someone communicates besides talking,” according to the Hearing-Language-Speech Association. of the United States.

However, some of these uploads have gained a lot of attention lately, as they show Bunny using buttons to express existential fear and confusion. In one video, she repeatedly signals “worried” and “very sad” as she asks for Fluoxetine, a drug used to treat generalized anxiety disorder.

Twitter users react with concern

While Bunny was already well known on TikTok, one user called attention to the dog in an “existential crisis” on Twitter and numerous new users weighed in on the situation.

Some said they felt sorry for the “sentient dog” because they believed she was so self-aware that she understood her own reality.

There is also some disagreement over the story, as some believe that Bunny took antidepressants after learning to communicate. However, others also shared that the dog had been given anti-depressants before, although the situation is still unfamiliar to some.

While Bunny’s owners trained her to communicate, one user even theorized that the dog may have had memories of being a human in a past life.
