A dog in Oklahoma now has become a viral sensation.
Why? Because her owner caught the hungry pooch in the act of sneaking off to a local McDonald’s to score free hamburgers from any stranger she could.
Earlier in the week, Betsy Reyes of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, posted a note on Facebook that her dog, Princess (shown above), had been leaving her home at night on her own and heading to the closest fast-food restaurant for some tasty snacks, as Fox News and other outlets reported Thursday and Friday.
The dog acted “like she’s a stray so people will feel bad for her & feed her burgers,” Reyes wrote in the post.
She also called her dog a “gold digger.”
By Thursday afternoon, the post from Reyes had more than 290,000 reactions and 270,000 shares.
“If you see my dog @ the McDonald’s … quit feeding her fat a** [because] she [doesn’t] know how to act … She [leaves] the house all the time to go walking to McDonald’s at night. She’s not even a stray dog,” Reyes explained in her post.
This past Monday, Reyes decided to follow her dog to the local McDonald’s to see exactly what was going on — and how the dog was going about this rather interesting nighttime activity.
There, she caught Princess “approaching a stranger’s car and begging the driver for food,” as Fox News noted, and as the video made clear.
In a separate video, Princess was also shown approaching Reyes’ own car.
It’s clear from the video that the dog almost immediately seemed to recognize Reyes — and she began to wag her tail and jump on her owner’s car.
Betsy Reyes was not immediately available for comment when Fox News reached out to contact her on Thursday, the outlet reported.
Among the questions some curious readers of this story have already raised: How is the dog able to get out of her home or yard — and get to the McDonald’s and back each night?
Is she being fed enough at home?
How long has this rather interesting activity been going on?
And did no one at McDonald’s ever report seeing what appeared to be a stray dog hanging around the parking lot of the fast-food outlet?
Thank goodness, no harm has come to her — and that she appears to have enormous support and concern from so many.
