Pi Dan (known as “Naughty”) is a charming one-year-old border collie who lives in the city of Shenyang in northeast China with his mother, known by her surname Zhang. The woman documented her dog’s daily life on Douyin, the Chinese TikTok.
It was known to Ms. Zhang that her dog often waited by the window when she went out to work, even took a nap right there and continued to wait. Even so, he would never have imagined he would spend so many hours staring out the window waiting for his return.
She said watching the video broke her heart, but there was nothing she could do when she had to go to work.
She told the Daily Mail:
“It broke my heart to see these images. But I have no other way.”

Ms. Zhang also said her 9-to-5 office job gave her the financial stability she needed, but cut into the time she could spend with her pet.
Ms. Zhang added:
“I do my best to take him everywhere to play on weekends and holidays. I also considered getting another dog, but I was afraid they were both waiting for me. It would still break me more heart.”
Naughty has been waiting for mom for 10 hours waiting at the window, she looks away hoping to see her favorite person. When he finally saw her return late in the afternoon, he immediately got up and ran happily to the door to greet her.
Professor of wildlife cognition and behavior at the University of Salford, Sean O’Hara, said in an interview with LadBible:
“Dogs have experienced this social lifestyle for a much shorter period of their evolutionary history than us. Therefore, social isolation is often problematic for them and they may experience separation anxiety.”
After seeing the scene on her home’s security camera, the woman decided to share her dog’s expectation on her social media. The feedback was immediate and people were amazed at Naughty’s loyalty.
Certainly, in these difficult times where telecommuting dominates, our pets are much happier to have their loved ones by their side at home all the time.
