This little penguin just can’t hold in his excitement when he sees his best friend approaching

We’ve all had moments when we’ve looked over and seen our pet dog or cat simply wandering around, doing everything in their power to look as adorable as they can. When we start to call out their name for them to come closer, they seem to ignore us, continuing to wander around as if we said nothing at all. Somehow, pretending not to hear us just makes them all that more cute.

Suddenly, something happens and they get a twinge of recognition. Their attention goes from a dazed and lazy wandering to an intense focus and excitement. Maybe it’s a friend. Maybe it’s a treat, or maybe it is a toy. One thing is for sure, they see something they want and they are about to go absolutely nuts.

When this penguin named Cookie was filmed wandering around the Cincinnati Zoo he paid little to no attention the people calling his name. Suddenly, he notices his favorite caretaker, and he goes absolutely nuts.

Words just can’t describe just how unbelievably cute this little penguin is. You’ll just have to watch this for yourself. Let us know what you think, and if you thought this was as insanely cute as we did, then be sure to share this with family and friends.
