GoPro video shows what dog does when owner leaves

What do you think your dog does when you leave the house? One curious You Tuber decided to actually see what his Goldendoodle was up to all day by strapping a GoPro camera to his chest.

And the results have collectively been described as heartbreaking.

He edited the footage into a now-viral video that shows the pup travel from window to window looking for his master while whining. He eventually sits down on the floor and lets out an occasional howl.

“I've had him for six years and today is the first day I have heard him howl,” Mike, creator of the video, wrote on Reddit after watching his findings.

The video has been viewed upwards of 5 million times in 10 days. Watch it above or here if you're on a mobile device.

This dog really is man's best friend.
