This doggo knows more than enough Harry Potter spells to pass his OWLs

If there are two things the internet h*ckin’ loves, it’s Harry Potter and dogs. Youtuber Anna Brisbin clearly know this, and clearly loves both Harry Potter and puppers herself. She’s currently breaking the internet with a video of her tiny dachshund, Remus, showing off all his obedience commands — except he’s trained with spells from the Potter universe.

So, um, yeah, Potterheads and dog lovers, like myself, all had pretty much the same reaction to this video.

Mashes “play” button as hard as my fingers possibly can.

In the video, sweet Remus proves that he’s one of the smartest and best trained puppers on the internet, but also that he would have his Charms OWL in the bag if he were a student at Hogwarts.

He plays dead when he’s told “Stupify” or “Avada Kedavra,” the stunning and killing spells, respectively. He stands up on his hind legs when he hears “Wingardium Leviosa.”

He climbs the stairs when he hears “Ascendio,” the rising spell, and runs back down them when he’s told “Descendo,” the falling spell.

He comes to “Revelio,” the revealing charm, and fetches his ball to “Accio ball,” the summoning charm.

“Expelliarmus” is his “drop it.” “Engorgio” tells him it’s time to eat. Upon hearing “Aguamenti,” the water summoning charm, Remus pees on command. If you’re not squealing yet, I don’t know what’s wrong with you.

To make the whole video even more adorable (not that we even thought that was possible), Brisbin uses a wand to help guide Remus through his obedience commands, and he wears a tiny sweater vest and tie while he performs all his perfect tricks, just like a real Hogwarts student.

If you, like the rest of the world, need to get more Remus in your life, you can follow him on his very own Instagram. Now someone give this very good boy 10 house points for being literally perfect.
