Dogs usually have particularly ways to express their feelings, but if there is one thing dogs are great at it that’s the way they show their happiness. From uncontrollable waggy tails to floppy ears dogs show they’re happy in such a contagious way.

Regularly it didn’t take a pie in the sky to make a dog happy. Happiness stays in small gestures and a dog knows it. That’s why a hug or a simple look into their eyes make them the happiest creature on Earth. It is also the case of this tiny pup called Odin whose happiness went straight to the moon when realized his favorite humans remembered his birthday.

The little Odin was adopted exactly 3 years ago by Joyce Cetina, from Mexico, and ever since he got nothing but love and affection from Joyce and her family. He was also such a good, loving boy, so naturally when his birthday was approaching, his mom decided to surprise him in the sweetest way.

“At first, he was a little confused,” Joyce told THE DODO. “He didn’t understand what it was all about, but then he saw the attention was focused on him, and the cake was for him. He was extremely happy and he loved it.”

Of course, the happy birthday song couldn’t have missed. Take a peek:
