Because of the difficulties that 2020 hurled our way, we needed to find ways to cope with the negative emotions that threatened our mental well-being. Some people focused more on their hobbies and interests like gardening and baking. However, some turned to online distractions, such as scouring the internet for whimsical and hilarious dog pictures.
One look at this particular corgi’s expressive face was all it took to capture the hearts of thousands around the world. This adorable boy was named Gensaku, or Gen for short. According to his owner Chikomaru, this 5-year-old pup was a sweet corgi with a tail.
His fans couldn’t get enough of his endearing and silly photos! Wide-eyed and grinning broadly, it wasn’t a shock that Gen became an online sensation. Playful and energetic, Gen’s hilarious facial expressions already earned him around 140,000 Instagram followers.
Chikomaru shared how this charming pup loved being surrounded by people, especially if that meant going on an adventure outside. Gen surprisingly had his share of challenging health, from having anemia to getting convulsive seizures. Because of his various conditions, he was a regular clinic patient that went through several medical procedures like dialysis and blood tests each week.
Regardless of his disorders, Gen still embraced life head-on and conveyed his genuine delight and happiness to everyone he met. From sticking out his tongue to reach a slice of pizza to trying on a variety of gorgeous doggy outfits, Gen’s zest for life inspired everyone who saw his photos. Images of his naturally big smile were what this world precisely needed to fight off negativity.
Chikomaru firmly believed in the importance of staying positive. Despite the numerous treatments he had to go through to survive, Gen and his family knew that loving each other was the key to having a great and happy life.
