When you send or receive a text from a wrong number, you have a couple of options. You can pretend it didn’t happen, you can politely inform the other party that you don’t know them, and apologize, or you can start a lifelong friendship based on heretofore unknown common interests.
Of course, in the case of dogs, you’ll find common ground with most good, honest people.
The unexpectedly wholesome interaction began when PhD candidate Sam Athey went to send some adorable pictures of pugs to a friend. She knows that they help when the person is feeling down, and since it’s 2020, I bet she might have to send at least one every day.
The pictures, though sent to a wrong number, were still happily received.
I mean, they’re pugs in pajamas. What’s not to love?
The person responded the only way a true dog lover can – with pictures of his or her own adorable pup.
The dog is Sir Charles Toasty Butternuts Pendragon the III, and he could make anyone’s day.
Anyone who would send a dog picture would love to get a dog picture – that’s just math!
And if there’s one thing we can all use this year, it’s more dopey dogs.
It’ didn’t end there, though, because people on Twitter started sharing photos of their own dopey dogs, and honestly, what more could we ask for?
One of the best things about living here on the Med is that my pug plants bloom year round. pic.twitter.com/J36GsasJHp

Who knew there were this many cute pugs out there?
Hey I think your friend would like my pugs in that case 🙂 pic.twitter.com/TU01XmzjZK

But I definitely can’t imagine living without this guy, though.

I don’t think this guy authorized the photograph.
Just like the rest of us this year! Ha!
This was fantastic. I’ve had lovely interactions with strangers on occasion and I get so chuffed by the experience. Giving you a follow and a picture of Murphy LaRue on my pillow! pic.twitter.com/K3zBJ1aCSy
