Meet Big Poppa.This adorable bulldog is usually a happy boy - but it seems self-isolation has been making him feel pretty down in the dumps.
Poppa's owner, Rashida Ellis, is a costume designer based in Atlanta...So usually, Poppa gets to meet actors on set. Even at home he's a social butterfly - according to Ellis, Poppa also loves hanging out with kids in her building. "He loves children and then other dogs and then adults," Ellis explained. "In that order."
It's no surprise that, like many of us right now, Poppa is missing his friends..."When he's in his sad mood I always say, 'Cheer up, Popsicle!' — I call him Popsicle — 'I want you to be happy!'"
The adorable pooch has gained newfound Twitter fame this week after a snap of him went viral...
via: TwitterWhy did it become so popular? Well, unsurprisingly, Poppa looks extremely sad in the photo.
While Ellis was working on Tuesday afternoon, she noticed Poppa on the patio...The pup was staring down at a pair of young brothers playing in the courtyard below. "He kept making noises to get their attention, but we're 6 stories up and they can't hear him," she explained. "I was like, 'Oh my god, he's really sad.'"
So, Ellis snapped a pic of her heartbroken pooch.
