No One Showed Up To This Dog’s Birthday Party And Everyone’s So, So Upset

Dogs have a strange ability to make us feel so many emotions.

When they’re happy, we’re happy.

But when they’re even the least bit sad, it tears our freaking hearts out of our chests.

That’s why it was particularly heartbreaking to see this tweet over the weekend:

A screenshot of a tweet which says "I threw Doug a party and none of the other owners showed up with their dogs." The tweet shows a series of three pictures, two of which are photos of dog bowls on a table with balloons to indicate a birthday party for a dog. The third picture is of a dog looking very, very sad on a couch.

@NasMaraj tweeted a picture of what appeared to be his dog, looking very, very somber, amid a series of photos from his birthday party, which no one attended.

Humans and canines alike couldn’t handle it.

Whoever made this little pup so sad was going to have to answer to this dude:

There were plenty of pups who would have been more than happy to party it up with Doug.

Once @NasMaraj saw the outpouring of support from Twitter, he let everyone know he’d be throwing another party soon.

A screenshot of a tweet which says "ok I'm throwing her another party, we're in Atlanta I will share the address soon, can you guys help me pick a date." and shows a poll for people to choose either April 1st or March 31st. 68% of people chose April 1st, and 32% chose March 31st.

Twitter


The responses came back even stronger this time, with people from far and wide ready to travel in the name of Doug’s birthday celebration.

A screenshot of a tweet which says "@NasMaraj I'll be there man" and shows a screenshot of a Siri conversation, where Siri said something "is moderate, so it should take about 9 hours and 58 minutes."

Twitter


It was shaping up to be a seriously wild party.

Twitter


Even people who didn’t have dogs wanted to join in on the fun.

A screenshot of a tweet which says "@NasMaraj I don't even have a dog but I'll bring presents bc Doug deserves them for being amazing."

But then…

A screenshot of a tweet which says "@NasMaraj idk why you gotta lie" and shows a series of pictures from a Google Images search.

Twitter


…someone called @NasMaraj’s bluff.

Yep. It turns out Doug the dog is not real.

There was no party, no dog friends, no sad Doug.

Everything you’ve ever known is a lie.

According to BuzzFeed News, Nasiir Williams, a 17-year-old from Atlanta, tweeted out the original post because he “was really bored one day,” and he’d been inspired by similar viral stories on social media.

However, he never expected this to go as far as it did.

Interestingly enough, Nasiir doesn’t even have a dog.

Elite Daily asked him, if he ever got a dog one day, what would his ideal puppy birthday party look like?

He described what would basically be our version of heaven:

Oh, it would have a lot of games for the dogs, treats, competitions, a lot of dogs would be in my backyard, maybe a little pool, I would go all out.

Someone PLEASE give this man a puppy so this can be an actual thing!!
