I mean who hasn’t done this before when they were a kid? “Eh Mom/Dad I realllly don’t feel good. I think I have a stomach ache. Is it okay if I stay home for the day from school?” you say as you just don’t feel like taking that English spelling test.

I don’t know about you I guess, but I did that enough times to count all of Jay-Z’s problems. Well it looks like Sullivan the dog felt the same or at least had a serious case of lovesickness.

His owners, Alex and Kennady, and he live in Utah and one day he Sullivan found a way to hang with his owner in a very unconventional way. You need to share this to anyone who believes dogs aren’t smart!

One day, Kennady figured she come home for lunch to get away from work. But when she was ready to go back to work, Sullivan started acting weird. He started to make a coughing noise, and Kennady wasn’t sure what to do. Sullivan must have heard his owners and thought he was a parrot…

In an interview with The Dodo, Kennady said, “It really, really freaked me out. He was wagging his tail and running around and just wanted to play but also kept making this horrific noise.”

After calling her husband Alex, they decided that he would come home from work and watch over Sullivan so he wouldn’t be alone and not feeling well. But as soon as the pup started getting some extra love the cough magically disappeared.

They, “figured he must have just gotten something stuck in his throat and finally got it out.” It was the only logical explanation, right?

Nope, the next morning it was back again right when the two were getting home from work. Alex stayed home again…and like that his cough was gone again. Desperate to figure out what was going on with the pupper, Alex took him to the vet later that day. What did he find out?

Yeah. Looks like even our dogs are capable of fake news these days. It seems after the vet did a few tests, there was proof that…nothing was wrong at all!

The couple wanted to get a second opinion but the results were the same. Kennady went onto say, “Almost all of them said he could be acting sick in the mornings or when we leave him because he knows if he acts different or sick we pay more attention to him and stay with him.”

Damn Sullivan you’re pretty smart!

Kennady concluded, “I’m actually not surprised at all that he could pull this off. He has been an insanely smart dog since we got him when he was a puppy. He learned and picked up on stuff really fast. He’s a really great dog.”
