Until someone invents a self-sufficient, near-human-like robot to look after our kids and pets while we’re away from the home, we will have to settle for the tech Best Buy has to offer.

In this adorable spot, featuring the cutest little pooch you ever did see, Best Buy shows a young woman leaving said cutie pie to go to work so she can put kibbles in his doggy bowl. While the story of a pet left alone at home would have probably once involved a series of hijinks, or a single shot of the little guy staring at the door until his owner gets back, this story takes a decidedly more modern and tech-ified route, with the brand showing how its smart home products can keep pet and pet-lover connected throughout the day.
