This is Joey. He's a 6-year-old golden retriever who's "a big dog but also a big baby."

"He's afraid of cats and loud noises," his 18-year-old owner, Emily Kuang, from California told BuzzFeed.

"He's afraid of cats and loud noises," his 18-year-old owner, Emily Kuang, from California told BuzzFeed.

So on July 4, as fireworks were ringing out through the night, Joey got very scared and jumped into Emily's parents' bed — something he knows he's not allowed to do.

But Emily's parents made an exception that night because they knew Joey would be startled.

But Emily's parents made an exception that night because they knew Joey would be startled.

To calm his nerves and drown out the noise, Emily's mom put a pair of headphones on him and played a dog video from a Chinese news app on her iPad. Emily captured it in a tweet that's now been retweeted over 100,000 times. (Press play: You will 😊😭😭💀💀)

he's scared of the fireworks so my mom put on some dog videos for him ❤️

The three-second clip has both gone massively viral and destroyed everyone who's watched it.

People are sobbing.

And making sure Joey knows the answer to the question "Who's a good dog??????" is "You're a good dog!!!!!!

Emily told us it's not the first time Joey's worn headphones, because they mask loud noises for him pretty successfully. But she had no idea the tweet would become this much of a deal.

"My boyfriend's sister retweeted it and she has a decent amount of followers, and it just blew up from there," she said.
