The TikTok account of @bentleythebrownlab went crazy within a week of the video, which showed the dog trying sparkling water for the first time, went live.

In the video, Bentley's owner secretly filled his drinking bowl with carbonated water and waited to see what would happen.

The Labrador can be seen running over to take a sip. His owner pointed the camera directly at Bentley as he begins to drink.

What happens next proves, without a shadow of a doubt, just how weird and pointless sparkling water actually is! Good on you, Bentley, for bringing attention to this important issue.

How did the dog trying sparkling water react?

Having lightly dipped his tongue into the sparkling water, the Labrador puckers his muzzle in disgust and recoils from the water. He's visibly shocked and incredibly confused, wondering why the water is so spicy all of a sudden.

Afterward trying the water and recoiling in disgust, the poor puppo looks fearfully at the bowl, turning his head from side to side in desperate (and dehydrated) confusion.

Bentley is clearly very perplexed by the mysterious liquid, wondering why it is so spicy and whether it is safe to drink at all. It seems a bit cruel, but you can't deny that it's pretty entertaining!

TikTokers from across the web unanimously found the video of Bentley trying sparkling water entertaining, but some were worried that it would scare him off water in the future.

The dog who tried sparkling water recovered just fine

Bentley's owner wanted to prove that the dog hadn't suffered any permanent damage from trying the sparkling water, so she created a follow-up video.

In the second clip, the Labrador can be seen lapping up a bowl of still water, proving that he was able to overcome the "trauma" of drinking sparkling water.
