Our dogs are always a great source of entertainment, whether they realize it or not. And for one Danish family with a 4-year-old English Bulldog, one of his little habits ended up becoming the gift that keeps on giving. Bogart is the adorable Bulldog who loves to stick his head through a hole in the family’s garden fence.
It’s nothing out of the ordinary – dogs are quite curious creatures and all of us with backyards know that when something catches our dog’s attention, they often try to find a way to get a better look. And if any of us have a hole or cracks in our fences, they’re the first place that our dogs go to in order to get a better look at what is happening in the neighborhood.
However, for Bogart, his hole in the fence, which he uses as a portal to the outside world, also ended up being something that provided his neighborhood – along with strangers on the internet – plenty of entertainment.
While Bogart was blissfully unaware as to what was happening to his holes in the fence, his owner, Ranveig Bjørklid Levinsen, was creating comical art for the whole world to see. In a style very similar to the photo stand-ins found at carnivals, Levinsen decided that it would be a good idea to paint a jester around one of the holes and a king around the other.
The results were hilarious as Bogart would peep his head in and out of the fence holes, that the video of him ended up going viral. And we completely understand why – it’s just too funny not to. However, Bogart isn’t the only dog to get attention while using the fence holes. In fact, Bogart’s canine mother would also get attention from neighbors if she ever peered out the fence.
After gaining thousands of shares, Levinsen was stunned by just how much attention her dog was gaining online.
In fact, on Facebook she wrote, “Bogart has gone viral in Denmark—he has also got on one of Denmark’s biggest influencers’ Instagram profile, and now I can see that he’s [on] a Norwegian dog group too.”
And it turned out the Bogart was also enjoying having so many people pay attention to him. As Levinsen shared with My Modern Met, “Bogart is a sweet, very loving and happy little English bulldog. He loves to play, and he loves it when we are having people over—the more attention, the better, and he can be very insisting. He is the most stubborn dog I’ve ever had—if there is something he doesn’t want to do, he will not do it.”
For once, being the neighborhood busybody paid off.
