The best part of any fur baby’s day is time spent out of the house. With so many different sights, sounds and smells to take in, our pups just love getting out. But what happens when it’s not just the occasional walk or trip to the dog park. What happens when a dog gets to experience something she’s never seen before?
It’s exciting for all dogs to explore a new environment, but even more so for a puppy that’s just beginning to understand the world around her.
A Corgi puppy named Zira couldn’t hold in her excitement as she got to experience shopping at Target for the first time. And we have to admit, it’s the same way a lot of us feel when we go out shopping.
On Twitter, photos of Zira’s amazing time at the shop have accumulated over 487K likes and 127K retweets, bringing instant fame to the Monterey, CA-based puppy.
But that trip earned Zira some real love, too. “While we were turning a corner, this woman shopping saw her and freaked out,” Jesse said. “She couldn’t stop going on and on about how cute Zira was. Zira just started licking her, and the woman loved it. She even picked Zira up and let her kiss her face!”
Zira the super-cute half Corgi puppy recently went shopping in Target and loved every second.
“This was her second trip, although her first one she just slept the entire time,” her owner Jesse told Bored Panda. “She reminded us so much of Rose from Titanic, the way she leaned against the front of the cart, looking out into the world of Target for the first time! We could tell she loved it so much.” Zira, the adorable Corgi and Mini Aussie mix is only 4 months old, so she’s constantly looking for anything she can chew. “She loves getting new toys, ones that squeak, crinkle, or bounce. And since she’s our first dog, she gets spoiled as much as possible!”
The response wasn’t always positive though, with Target themselves claiming that their store is “Service Animal Friendly only.” Jesse has since issued an apology on Instagram on behalf of Zira, stating: “I’ve learned a lot about the laws and regulations on pets allowed in stores. My parents weren’t aware of all the risks and dangers when they brought me in there.”
