Benny is happy. The proof is in the clap.

Benny is a happy dog. How do we know? Because he claps his hands… er, paws.

In a video uploaded to YouTube by Liam Burke, Benny the dog claps his paws along to the song, “If You’re Happy and You Know It.”

A woman sings the song to Benny while playfully scratching his belly. When she reaches the part that goes, “Clap your hands,” she stops scratching him, and then, right on cue, Benny claps his two paws together.

Does Benny know the song and understands when it’s time to clap?

Or does he just know that clapping is seen as utterly adorable by all humans and if he does it, his owner will continue scratching his chest?

The latter certainly seems more likely, but this little performance is amazing, just the same.
