Just like we sprint to the door at the faintest whisper of our DoorDash delivery, our four-legged pals are on high alert for any hint of a meal.

Enter the scene: a TikTok perfectly titled “Food is life” where we meet Butters, the Pembroke Welsh corgi, in the deepest of slumbers.

That is, until the universe presents him with the most compelling reason to bolt awake—a solitary grain of rice.

While he dreams, his human sneakily approaches the food bowl and with a delicate “plink,” the rice makes its grand entrance.

Like lightning, Butters is on the move, eyes wide with the promise of a feast.

Can we really fault him?

This adorable moment has us all reminiscing about Pavlov’s famous dogs (yep, those drooling pups trained to expect food at the sound of a bell).

If we were in Butters’s tiny paws, we’d be dashing for the chance of a snack attack too!

Butters’s swift dash to dine, now a viral sensation with over 1.3 million views since its debut, hits home for dog lovers everywhere.

Let’s be real, who among us hasn’t been nearly bowled over by an overly eager pet at the mere rustle near their food dish?

Butters, however, might just have the edge in the keen ears department.

Thanks to their corgi heritage, these pups boast some seriously sharp hearing, ready to detect even the faintest whispers of a meal—in this case, the gentle descent of a single grain of rice.

So, here’s a little advice: if you’re hoping to enjoy your snacks without triggering a canine food rush, you might want to put some space between you and those super-powered corgi ears.

Trust us, it’s for the best!
