Dogs will be dogs, and one Australian doggo named Stanley proved that point during his first interview with Network 10 - Perth.


Stanley, who recently went viral after his family posted videos of him excitedly playing with a tennis ball launching machine, seemed mostly unfazed by the interview until reporter Beau Pearson asked how he was coping with his newfound notoriety.

When offered the mic, Stanley immediately pulled off the foam windscreen (which we must admit does definitely resemble a ball). and quickly ran away with it, jumping off the deck he had been sitting on.

It's worth turning on sound for this one, it makes the video even more hilarious:


People couldn't get enough of Stanley's on-brand response.

Stanley really loves his tennis balls.


Stanley's human, Alicia, first started using the automatic tennis ball thrower after she broke her ankle.

She soon noticed his love of trying to catch the ball as soon as the machine launches it, and decided to share Stanley's antics on Reddit.

She told 10 News First Perth:

"I put it up on Reddit and by the evening, it was on the front page. Then it made its way to Facebook and has just spiraled since then. It's been pretty wild"


Here's the original video that cemented Stanley's fame:

It's not all about the tennis balls, though; afternoon naps in the sun are also highly important!


Bed naps too!


He may also be the most photogenic dog ever.


We hope Stanley continues living his best doggy life and catching those tennis balls, and that Alicia will keep sharing videos of it with us.
