A corgi in China has gained millions of followers by pretending to be ill so that her young human can practice her doctor skills.
Big Pancake (大餅), a one-year-old corgi, is a frequent patient of its human owner, Momo, an aspiring doctor.
On the account “Momo and Dad” (莫莫和爸爸), Big Pancake and Momo’s medical adventures have received millions of views on Douyin, China’s version of TikTok.
In the videos, Momo, who is usually dressed in a doctor’s white coat, gives a variety of medical examinations to Big Pancake, from dental care to surgeries.
But don’t worry; Momo has a 100% success rate, and no animals have been hurt in the process.
Occasionally, Momo’s waiting area gets a little too crowded as more patients arrive. In some videos, Big Pancake, Momo’s dad and brother become seriously “injured” and “sick”.
Momo works as a doctor out of her house, which is equipped with the most advanced and most up-to-date cardboard medical equipment.
Her dad, a “renowned cardboard expert”, helps build and manufacture all the equipment Momo needs.
Truly, Big Pancake has gone the extra mile to entertain its human and put up with her antics of wanting to be a doctor — because its never too late to help your human start on her future career.
