Golden retrievers are generally bundles of joy anyway, but we’ve never seen one as happy as Jolene upon seeing the human-sized version of her favorite Gumby toy.

She approaches cautiously at first, but once she recognizes the human inside the suit, she’s all about wrasslin’ Mega Gumby to the ground, tail wagging all the while.

Facebook user Emily Crisp posted the aww-dorable video late Thursday night, and it’s already racked up over a million views on that platform. GIF versions of the encounter are all over Reddit this morning as well.

So in case any of you dog owners out there still hadn’t figured out a costume idea for Halloween this weekend, this pretty much cinches it.
