A senior dog cannot contain his enthusiasm while watching a documentary about wolves.

Looks like the wolf pack might get a new member.

In a video uploaded to YouTube by user Eiram, an older dog attentively watching a documentary about wolves sees his wild brethren run across the screen and begins to pounce involuntarily, almost as if its inner wolf is awakening after a lifetime of being tamed and tucked away.

It starts with one pounce and mild excitement at seeing wolves in their natural habitat.

Then the excitement begins to grow, and the dog jumps closer and closer to the screen.

It’s almost as if the dog thinks jumping toward the screen will open a portal from the quiet living room to the chilly outdoor setting in which these wolves are being filmed.

We think it’s time for this dog to go have a romp in the snow. Or at least a howl at the moon.
