OK, technically Labradors are capable of getting excited over almost anything, including slight breezes.

The gods of timing were smiling on Severa the dog, whose reaction to Portugal’s goal against the United States during the World Cup matchup this past weekend was captured on YouTube.

Sure, there very well could have been a person just out of frame holding up a dog treat, but that doesn’t make Severa’s reaction any less endearing.

Perhaps Team Portugal should consider hiring Severa as an official cheerleader.
