Why do dogs get the zoomies? There is no clear answer, but it's a playful act that's downright adorable. Watching your dog get super excited and fly off is not only cute, but usually pretty funny.

Like these Basset Hounds. Both of these Basset Hounds have come down with a case of the zoomies… and for the silliest reasons.

Our first Basset seems to be unusually excited about being on the porch. Watch him sprint back and forth in the video below.

That's some speed on Cooper! Look at his ears flapping!

And our second Basset is zooming around the yard with a toy. His owner is chasing after him, but Arthur will not be caught.

Go Arthur go!
