Humans are exhibiting major quarantine blues because they are capable of. But what about the little dogs? They can’t frown as you do. They can’t Netflix and chill. They can’t post a snap saying quarantine and chill.
This is the most understated effect of the lockdown. All the dogs around the world are sad because they can’t play outside. This is the story of one such dog.

Big Poppa is the cutest little bulldog. This 3-year-old English dog is from Atlanta, Georgia.
Big Poppa belongs to Rashida Ellis. She is a T.V. and film, costume designer.
She recently posted a picture on Instagram and Twitter. Undoubtedly, the picture was of her dog who was looking at children playing basketball. And he looked incredibly sad.
Social distancing has made it impossible for him to go out for a walk or go out and play.
Like every dog, Poppa loves spending time with other dogs, kids, and adults.
Clearly lockdown has been hard on him.
“The sadness started during the lockdown because Pop would usually go outside and play with some of the children in the courtyard every day and also multiple people would pet him when we walk,” Ellis shared.
“Ever since the lockdown, none of this happens and he tries to get their attention from the patio, but ends up defeated.”
