This sounds like a dog that spreads some kind of wisdom. Well, it is and then it is not. This is yet another fictional character that was part of a video that went viral.  The dog of wisdom has been viewed millions of times thanks to its surrealism and random dialogue.

About the video

The animation video begins with a Dachshund flying an airplane.  The language that he uses to talk is probably invented by the author of the video, Joe Gran. But nothing to worry as English subtitles are offered throughout the video. The dog starts by saying how smart and cute he is.  We happen to agree on this one. We soon learn that his name is “The Dog“.

He then begins to bark out of nowhere. A nod to dogs who love to bark for nothing. He suddenly meets, sitting on a cloud, the Dog of Wisdom. This dog explains our plane dog what kind of wisdom he has by spreading it from his wisdom tooth. Perhaps the knock knock joke was even better. Both dogs end up singing the theme for an 80s sitcom called “The Greatest American Hero“.
