A now-viral video that shows a corgi riding the train with her owner has delighted the internet.
The video was posted to Reddit's "Aww" forum on Sunday by Bryan, u/kittytime, who wrote: "This is how my corgi and I ride the train together." The post has earned more than 10,000 upvotes and over 100 comments from Redditors who agreed that the corgi is "off the scale cute."
As it turns out, the corgi is a "pet influencer" named Maxine. Her owner, Bryan, frequently posts videos of the dog to TikTok and Instagram under the username madmax_fluffy road. The accounts have reached a combined total of over 4 million followers.
"Maxine is my favorite corgi ever besides my own," said Redditor u/savannah0719. "I mayyyy have walked around the dumbo area in Brooklyn for an insane amount of time just looking for Maxine lol."
The video is a supercut of various clips that show Maxine sitting contentedly in Bryan's backpack as they ride the New York City subway together. In one clip, Maxine rests her head on Bryan's shoulder. In another, she sleeps peacefully behind him, with her head thrown back and her mouth slightly ajar.
Throughout the video, passersby can be seen gawking at Maxine and Bryan as they navigate the subway system together. One even jumps at the chance to pet the dog.
In the video's final clip, Maxine licks Bryan's ear before flashing a big smile at the camera.
"The ear kisses!!! Your pup probably loves the perspective," added u/Riverofwellbeing.
According to the American Kennel Club (AKC), there are two breeds of corgis—the Pembroke Welsh Corgi and the Cardigan Welsh Corgi. Though the two breeds have "completely different origins," they both "share a love of their people and are happiest when they can spend time with [them]."
"They are delightful companions, enjoy time with children, and adore participating in whatever their humans are doing," said AKC.
Breeder Anne Bowes told the organization that Pembrokes are "CAN-DO" dogs that "want to do whatever it is that their owners want to do." Similarly, Cardigans are a breed of dog that "you can do everything with."
"They love to travel and have new experiences," she further explained.
Commenters loved watching Maxine's now-viral train ride and flooded the comments section.
"That is off the scale cute," wrote u/Educational_Safe_339.
"Cuteness overload," said u/RandomCollector.
Newsweek reached out to Bryan for comment, but did not hear back in time for publication.
Maxine isn't the first corgi to make headlines this year. Last month, a corgi puppy named Daisy went viral on Reddit after her owner shared a photo of her making a rather "serious" face while on a walk. Also in March, a 1-year-old corgi named Jessica swam through alligator-infested waters to reunite with her owners after jumping off their boat in Florida. And in January, a TikTok video that shows a corgi named Cooper outgrowing his favorite napping spot went viral with more than 20 million views.
