While the mishap is funny, Chip's story is actually pretty amazing. Newsy chatted with his owner, Missan, via Skype. "Chip came a year ago. He and his brother was chained inside of a shed," Missan said.

Missan said that Chip first came to her through a foster program called Friends Forever, which takes dogs from Ireland and sends them to families in Sweden, where she lives.

"When he got here, we fostered him first, but I fell in love with him. As soon as you looked at him, he would hide in a corner and shiver," Missan explained.

Missan says Chip has gotten a lot better since he first came to them. Now, he will even greet people. It's obvious he's a very happy pooch. He also gets along with her other dog, Fred. Instead of shivering and hiding, Chip "wants attention 24/7."

Now that's a doggone adorable story.
