Your morning adorable: Rottweiler puppy has the hiccups

January 11, 2010 | 11:57 am

Nemo, a young and adorable Rottweiler, is made all the more adorable (in our opinion) by the manner in which his lips tremble a bit when he's struck with a bout of hiccups. 

Veterinarian Jon Geller of DogChannel.com explains that "hiccups in dogs are a harmless condition. They basically are a repeating spasm of the laryngeal cartilage."  So no need to worry about little Nemo here -- which makes us feel a bit less guilty about our repeated viewings of this video.
