Pet Dog Adorably Cradles a Tennis Ball in His Mouth While Sleeping: Watch

"When you're tired but can't let anybody else steal your ball," a caption accompanying the video read

Sweet dreams are made of this!

Earlier this month, the TikTok account HarryAndRemi shared a post on the video-sharing app that showed a pet dog adorably sleeping with a tennis ball in his mouth.

At the start of the clip, one pup is captured lying next to another, before the camera pans to highlight the second canine snoozing with the sports object. Over the footage, the sound of snoring can be heard.

"When you're tired but can't let anybody else steal your ball," a caption written across the video read.

In a separate caption accompanying the seconds-long clip, the owner behind the HarryAndRemi account wrote: "He loves tennis balls so much! 🎾."

According to a profile description on the HarryAndRemi account, the two dogs featured are part of a trio of whippets named Harry, Remi and Little Man.

Other videos on the TikTok account show the pets opening Christmas presents and cuddling with their owner.

In another clip, one of the dogs is captured experiencing "zoomies," which are "a dog's way of explaining they're excited and happy, enough to want to show it," according to Dr. Zac Pilossoph, a consulting veterinarian at Healthy Paws Pet Insurance.

Pilossoph told PEOPLE last year of the canine phenomenon: "It's their best expression of being happy."

"The term 'zoomies' is colloquial and describes the behavior many pet parents have experienced. Still, your dog can get the zoomies during a few scenarios, like when an owner comes home or uses a favorite toy. The zoomies can best be defined as a dog's most excited expression of happiness," he added.
