When we try something new, most of us try not to fully express our reaction, be it positive or negative. 

With dogs, it is somewhat different. They don’t hesitate to express in all ways what they think about something new, and their reaction can often be hilarious.

This is especially true when they try a new food or drink without even knowing that it is something different.

One black Labrador found herself in exactly such a situation and didn’t know what hit her when her tongue came into contact with what she thought was plain water.

The Side-Eye Said It All

A short video appeared on @theblacklabrador_poppy’s Instagram profile, which immediately caught the attention of many followers.

A black Lab named Poppy couldn’t resist trying the mysterious liquid from her owner’s cup.

At the beginning of the video, her tongue can be seen happily running up and down as she tastes what she probably thought was plain water.

However, after only a few seconds, her head suddenly moves away from the cup and she enters a defensive position as if something dangerously bit her tongue.

She moves back and forth in protest, and finally gives it some side-eye that seems to say “What is this spicy stuff?”. It was indeed water, but the sparkling one.

However, in this video, Poppy showed what she thinks about it and that there is no need for her mom and dad to spend money on it. Poppy would rather stick her head under the faucet.

Daddy Was “A Guilty Party”

Jaclyn Littrup, Poppy’s owner, who lives in Michigan, said that her husband, Gerrit, was drinking sparkling water in the Instagram video and that he is to “blame” for Poppy’s reaction.

“Poppy is very curious, so of course she would be interested in it. She was trying to smell it because she’s always interested in what we are having,” Littrup said in an interview for Newsweek. 

She shared that her husband eventually succumbed to Poppy’s begging and decided to give her a small amount in a bottle cap. The black Lab’s owner recalls her adorable reaction: “Well, she had a lick and she is definitely not a fan of sparkling water.”

Jaclyn also said that Poppy is always a hungry girl and that she goes absolutely nuts when it’s mealtime. 

“Anytime we have snacks, open the fridge or start cooking she is immediately next to us waiting to see if she can have a bite. Poppy wants to try everything we have. We have to tell her no from time to time,” the Realtor said.

Because of her love for food, they even dressed her in a hamburger costume last Halloween!

By next Halloween, they’ll probably have to find a costume in the shape of a big bottle of sparkling water!

Followers Were Delighted With Her Reaction

Poppy has her profiles on both Instagram and TikTok. At the time of publication of this video, the beautiful black Labrador from Michigan had many followers.

Nevertheless, this viral video made her a star, and in addition to many likes, it also caused numerous reactions from her fans.

“That side eye though so cute,” one user said. 

Another one joked: “Why does it taste like tv static?!?!”.

“My oldest daughter as a toddler just screamed too much bubbles tickles my brain!” one woman wrote, and we guess that is exactly what Poppy was thinking at that moment, but wasn’t able to articulate it.

What Poppy managed to tell/show us is that next time, she will think carefully before trying something new, especially if it is a liquid.

She will certainly not allow such an unpleasant experience again.
