It’s Friday and you’re exhausted from a long week of work. But if you think your job is hard, just be thankful you don’t have to endure the impossible job of being a Ridgeback puppy.

Comments for [VIDEO] The Hardest Job in The World

  1. Phenny started to sing along with you… it’s a dogs life huh? have a great weekend!!!

  2. Emmadog says:

    Madison says puppy life is really tough, but she has no trouble getting comfy. Her problem is shutting down enough to sleep. Once we find her off switch and hit it, she is off into Slumberland in a second! Love all the groaning and snoring noises!

  3. Such sounds coming from the little pup. If ever a dog rolled his eyes…I think Doc fit the bill with his expression.
    Happy weekend to the whole gang. 🙂

  4. Victoria Coleman says:

    wow some of the cutest commentary out there – such funny whinning for sure – and he is still just a little cutie – Doc seems so patient as does Penny! You guys have a great weekend

  5. Piglove says:

    The struggle is real settling down to take a nap. I think I’ve heard my dad groan like that before trying to do the same. Snorts with piggy laughter. Happy weekend sweet friends. XOXO – Bacon

  6. Connie Taylor says:

    Our Bentley does the same whinning too, and she’s three!! Poor Zero just couldn’t convince Penny to move and refluff herself for his comfort. Doc obviously had his comfort spot down pat. Have a great weekend and Zero, this is the time to rejuvenate yourself for Monday Mayhem with Penny ‼️

  7. Greg says:

    Funny video! I think Zero has some Humpback Whale somewhere in his lineage !

  8. KarenS says:

    Poor little guy . So hard to make that perfect nest. To share with your older sister. So hard to be a puppy

    Love ❤️ the video! Just what I needed

  9. Jo Rhodes says:

    Oh my goodness, the little brother whine! Such a pitiful creature. Penny shows no compassion. Poor Doc has to put up with his little cousins. Oi.
    My boys don’t snuggle with each other all that much. I get one pup on each side of me.
    Love,love, love, Jo, Sam, and Dean

  10. Regardless of breed, there’s no doubt being a puppy is hard work. Even getting to bed is a laborious process.

  11. We’re not letting Doc near the phone for fear he’ll call 911 about a hostage situation.

  12. Haha I think they both realize they prefer a yowling Zero to a Zero flying on top of them when they’re trying to nap.

  13. Hopefully this video doesn’t give Emily any ideas…

  14. Oh yes, some go for beauty sleep, we go for mayhem sleep. Chaos requires you be well-rested and get a good breakfast.

  15. We’re thinking he’s a Ridgeback/whale/dinosaur/wookie mix

  16. It’s a struggle, but Zero perseveres!

  17. Haha pitiful indeed! You’d think he was stuck at the bottom of a well rather than snoozing on top of his big sister.

  18. He is looking so much like his mama in this video . What a handsome guy!! Glad he finally got comfy!

  19. Kathy Drosdick says:

    I didn’t realize that Penny was under the blanket…Zero is just too funny. Those noises do sound like whale/dinosaur communication…I was thinking that maybe he was complaining about being videoed or that you wouldn’t help him out with the dilemma he found himself in…Hopefully he doesn’t sleep in with you guys, you’ll never get any sleep.
    Again Miss Penny is an exemplary picture of patience.

  20. OMGoodness, Z That did seem like a tough job. I love that Penny just let it all play out without getting involved. Mom is usually my pillow. Like your dad, she makes sure I get what I need for comfort. Sometimes thumbs come in handy…

    Love and licks,

  21. Ellen says:

    Wow!! Penny sounds exactly like my girl Shadow!! She’s forever whining about something!! Good Luck Zero!!

  22. Shirley Andonie says:

    Poor baby! Hahaha…..couldn’t believe those sounds were coming from him!

  23. Piglove says:

    Snorts!! Now please video tape if it does. Hilarious. XOXO – Bacon

  24. lisaC says:

    Talk about a creature of comfort. I’ve got one too and he hasn’t outgrown the need for just the right position. LOL.

  25. Hilarious……….absolutely. I’m impressed and I thought Teddy was having a tough kittenhood with all the groaning around here but I do believe that Zero has him beat – seriously.


  26. coastingnz says:

    Too cute – I was assuming Penny Mayhem was under their somewhere lol. The look on Doc’s face said it all though didn’t it – for goodness sake will you just go to sleep lol Have a good day at “work” team.

  27. Geri Zeibert says:

    This troubles me. How will you be able to decipher if something is really wrong, if Zero is hurt or ill, if he makes those moaning noises just because he can’t find a comfortable spot? He really sounded as though he were in pain in some of them!

  28. Anne says:

    Poor little put upon baby boy. He just couldn’t get comfortable because big sis’ was stealing his favorite spot. We go through this every evening when each one gets upset if another has snuck around and taken their particularly favorite spot on a huge sofa that I’m so lucky to have a reserved seat that they know is mine.

  29. Melody says:

    So adorable and so Ridgeback stubborn boy

  30. Definitely! I keep going back and forth on who he looks most like, but I think he’s trending towards mom right now. That said, he’s certainly got Simba’s heft!

  31. Haha we said it was a whale/dino song too! The puppy blues are quite the tune.

  32. If at first you don’t succeed, whine, whine again.

  33. The princess and the pea doesn’t even begin to describe these big babies!

  34. When even other dogs think you whine a lot, you know you whine a lot. Zero was undeterred, obviously.

  35. From all my experience with my dogs (Ridgeback’s specifically) true distress never presents itself like this. True injury/distress presents itself with markedly different behavior and sounds. This is just standard leisurely bellyaching. We’d just gotten back from the beach and Zero was happily trotting around the apartment before he hopped up and started complaining. He was feeling just fine! Just not perfect…which for a puppy is clearly unacceptable.

  36. Haha it’s a dance we all do!

  37. A Ridgeback being stubborn??? I’m shocked!

  38. Haha it’s so tough to be a puppy, I want to be a puppy one day.

  39. Shalini says:

    Oh my god sweetie!! 🙂 <3 that just made my day! Poor boy what a rough life!!

  40. I have no idea how he manages to endure such tribulations each day.

  41. I love how Penny completely ignored Zero’s grumbling! Thanks for revealing her under the blanket to make this clip complete.

  42. OMG those sounds!!!!!! Soooo precious!!!!! I got tired of waiting for my husband, I am sooo happy I got to see this!! Just adorable!
