A dog in China became the victim of cheesy feet, where it could no longer hold its vomit upon taking a quick whiff of the shoe!
In a video that went viral on Weibo, a group of men were seen in front of a store. Wanting to change a lightbulb, one man took of his shoe and climbed a chair in an effort to make a quick fix.
Taking off his shoes, he proceed to climb a plastic chair and fixed the burnt light bulb.
Not long after, a black and white doggo began sniffing around in the area before arriving at the man’s abandoned shoe.
At this point, the dog quickly ran away from the atrocious smell, before vomitting at the sidewalk, to the horror of those witnessing the event.
One can only wonder just how bad the smell must have been for the poor doggo.
