So Cute!!! Service Dog in training gets to meet his favorite character Pluto!

Posted by Disney Dorks on Monday, February 8, 2016

Imagine being a dog at Disneyland for a second. Now imagine being a dog at Disneyland, and meeting your own personal star, the dog who has done more for canine advancement than perhaps any other: Pluto

Pluto is apparently Ace's favorite Disney character, because, you know, dogs can have preferences for animated characters. When Ace met Pluto, Ace lay himself prostrate before his idol's feet.

Okay, fine, enough with the snark: their encounter is very cute.

Somoene posted a video of the encounter to the nearly 64,000-member-strong Facebook group "Disney Dorks" last week. A few days later, the video has over 18 million views, and 231,000 likes.

It all checks out: Disneyland + shiny fluffy dog + a 15-second video = Internet Gold.

According to KTLA, Ace was taken to Disneyland at the end of last year as part of a socialization experiment, said Sandy Steinblums with the Guide Dogs of America.

Dogs, they're just like us.
