Is there such a thing as too much happiness? Apparently, there is.

People across the world continue to stay at home and self-isolate amid the coronavirus pandemic, but a seven-year-old dachshund is just happy to have his family home.

Rolo couldn’t contain his elation that everyone was stuck at home, so much so that his tail came off second best, reported People.

His owner, Emma Smith, posted about her precious pup on Twitter.

“So my dog has been so happy that everyone is home for quarantine, that his tail has stopped working. We went to the vet and the vet said he had sprained his tail from excessively wagging it,” she posted.

Emma gave an update the next day, which included a cute clip of Rolo swaying his back end back and forth while playing with a stuffed toy.She also shared that Rolo is currently on pain medication and should be healed within a week.

At least the lucky pooch is getting plenty of belly rubs.
