When Buck the puppy had his first case of the hiccups, his natural defensive instincts kicked in and he attempted to bark them away.

Warning: only watch this video if you are sure you can handle the high level of cuteness.

Buck, who is winning in the adorable stakes, just experienced his first hiccups and  you can see as he progresses from uncertainty to fear to bold barking.

There is almost nothing as sweet as watching a puzzled little puppy and even more so, when they try to act all tough and strong and scare away the strange sounds coming from their own mouths.

His owner understands the appeal of this puppy and uploaded this video of his hiccups. We trust that you’ll enjoy the Friday fun provided by baby Buck.
