The video was posted on an Instagram page dedicated to Aston. “Aston continues to amaze me with its button communication. Deaf and blind dogs are capable of more than you can imagine,” reads part of the description posted with the video.
The next few lines describe the moment shown in the video. “Aston, a white and yellow dog, presses big colorful buttons with textures on top. He says: ‘water’ then ‘Dax’ then ‘water’ again. Then Aston and Dax, a blue five mix, drink water from the same bowl at the same time.”

What are Instagram users saying?
“Why should a dog have to look for water? They should have a full bowl of water available to them at all times, whether you’re there or not,” asked one Instagram user. To which Aston’s pet parent replied, “Of course, Aston always has access to water. He likes to use his water button to request cold water from the fridge instead of room temperature water.”
Another posted: “Ashton is so amazing. I’m his number one fan and I don’t care who I have to fight to maintain my status.” A third added, “Omg! That’s the cutest thing I’ve ever seen!” A fourth wrote: “These dogs using buttons have always impressed me, but Aston using them is amazing. He makes my heart happy with every post I see from him. You are such a good person that you make his life full of miracles, love and learning.”
