Animals Video

By Kirstie Sutheran

This adorable Pomeranian puppy Dolly takes a little ride up with her balloons.

The little pup seems to ascend gracefully – pulled up the pink balloons that she’s attached to.

But it’s actually a trick of the eye and Dolly is being lifted by her owner Giovanna Gerrits.

Nineteen-year-old Giovanna lives in Amsterdam, Netherlands and studies dance education.

Giovanna says that the created the video with five-month-old dolly because she wanted to make people smile.

She said: “We had some balloons and Dolly was playing with them. Then I thought of a video I saw earlier of a dog with balloons and I said let’s try it for fun – it looked so funny that we filmed it.

“I have had a lot of positive reactions. It made people laugh and happy. But there were some people who thought that Dolly was really lifted up by the balloons and they got really mad.

“I understand that it looks very real, but I would never do that to my dog.

“I hold Dolly and the balloons from behind. I was standing behind the wall and lifted her up from the ground. So that it would seem like she’s lifted up by the balloons.

“The video is meant to make people smile and make them happy when they see the video.”
