Watch One Little Dachshund Help His Owner Come Out Of The Closet

When Ivan decided to share his coming out story on YouTube, he turned to his favorite furry friend for some help.

Ivan goes on to explain that his mom has probably known for a while, due to "motherly intuition" – or the fact he has never had a girlfriend.


OKAY, okay. Maybe Ivan made the whole video himself, but Thor is the best friend in the whole wide world.

In the words of Thor: "I know Ivan doesn't have a tail, but I do know he very happy by the way he smiles. I love him more than treats."

Ivan told BuzzFeed he used his pup to share his story because pets "never judge us."

I just felt like doing something different with mine. What I loved about using Thor in this video is the fact that our pets, whether it be a cat, a dog, a turtle, etc, they never judge us and to them we are just their friend and they love us unconditionally. I love that message. My friends love the video which I was very nervous to share. I've been getting emails and comments from complete strangers and that's been so amazing, plus other have begun to share their coming out stories with me and it is incredible.
