Why dogs eating watermelon are the latest trend to take over the internet
An adorable viral sensation is changing the way we think about dogs and watermelon – kinda.
Dogs eating watermelon is a viral trend of cuteness and oddity in equal measure.
The sensation began when Twitter user @JenelleBnstr shared a video of her dog, you guessed it, eating a watermelon – but it’s the delicate and anthropomorphic manner in which the pooch eats the fruit that makes it such a compelling watch.

That adorable video has been shared over 125,000 times on Twitter, with people noting the way the dog carefully avoids eating the rind and leaves human-like teeth marks in the melon.
Naturally though, other dog owners wanted to share how their dogs do it – here are the results, illustrated in 10 more ways dogs eat watermelon.
