Ah, pets, they make it so easy to love them. Their pure souls and innocent actions bring out the best in us. Although sometimes we need to clean up after them and it isn’t always pretty, it is all forgotten once they come to us for a few scratches behind the ears. Doggos are probably one of the most loyal friends on the planet. Everything they do is just a giant "awe" moment. This is definitely one of those moments.

But sometimes it’s really hard being a dog, you know? People never seem to understand you. All they ever think is that you are cute and loyal and that you like to chew on their sofa cushions, but what about your hopes and dreams? What happens with all of your aspirations? Does anyone care that you want to become an astronaut like Laika or that you want to be the best piano player that ever lived? That’s right. The answer is no.

Ah, those humans, when will they ever understand dog language? It would make things way more easier. But no, they can’t get past the woof-woof. A dog can’t seem to cough or sneeze these days. Sheesh.

A funny video has emerged of a dog using various methods to communicate to his owner that he is hungry.

The video, filmed in the US on December 22, shows Apollo the German Shepherd following his owner around the kitchen, nodding towards the pantry and fridge and barking when his owner says the word "food" or "hungry?"

At the beginning of the video, the cute dog even looks down at his empty bowl and gives it a whack with his paw. The message he's trying to convey could not be more clear.

We also find out later in the footage that it is just midday, which means that Apollo has just eaten and should be full up. After a few puppy dog eye stare downs, it seems like he will get just a bit more kibble!

It is not at all uncommon for German Shepherds to feel hungry more than they should or to simply have a fascination with food or anything that might resemble food. Especially when they are just young, fast-growing pups who need every morsel of energy to grow up into healthy, strong and beautiful dogs we love so much. There are reports from all over the world that German Shepherd dogs can sniff out bones buried in some bushes, or them eating plastic bags. It seems that they just cannot get enough of food, just as this video clearly proves!

Watch Apollo the German Shepherd try to communicate that he wants food.

      I really hate when an owner teases a dog.

      Very cute! My cat is also very good at getting his message across to me. And he will not be ignored!

      He looks good! It's not safe for a larger breed dog to be overweight because of hip dysplasia. This German Shepherd in the video is well taken care of. His fur is nice, his eyes are bright and he's alert! The guy's playing with the dog a little too much for the sake of US WATCHING THE VIDEO! 👀 👀 But the food bowl should be much bigger that's for sure!!✌️💕
