Dante the dog just can’t catch a break.

Pixar‘s latest short film ahead of its new original movie Coco is two minutes of pure delight that you should just go ahead and watch right now.

Seriously, we’ll wait.

OK, now isn’t your heart filled with joy?

This little short isn’t our first introduction to Dante the dog, who appeared in the teaser for Coco, set to hit theaters Nov. 22.  (You can check out Pixar’s full movie schedule here.) The story revolves around Miguel, a young Mexican boy and aspiring musician who accidentally stumbles into the Land of the Dead. It appears from the teaser trailer that Dante will be Miguel’s faithful companion throughout the adventure. That’s a good thing, because this is one Xoloitzcuintli (Dante’s breed of Mexican hairless dog) that we can’t wait to spend more time with.

We just hope that in the movie he’ll find a treat he can actually keep.
