Those hefty portions of food devoured on Thanksgiving were most likely followed by rounds of deep slumber -- the kind of sleep that some refer to as a food coma. Those of us who weren't sleeping were probably watching football on TV on turkey day. Devin Contreras is not most of us. He was watching his dog dance.

After he and his family had their Thanksgiving meal, his pet Chihuahua, Sloopy, did something that is making people all over the Web smile and giggle. According to Contreras, he shot the video "Sloopy the Dancing Chihuahua" when "my Chihuahua Sloopy, after our Thanksgiving meal, started dancing for the plate of turkey on the counter!" Contreras writes that Sloopy kept dancing, so Contreras turned on Miami Sound Machine's "Conga," featuring Gloria Estefan. The video was uploaded to YouTube on Nov. 22 and has already gone viral, surpassing more than a million views in just five days.

Some people who commented on it have their suspicions that Sloopy's dance is on a loop or digitally altered in some way. They say there's no way his little legs could possibly be moving that quickly for that long. Others want to believe that Sloopy is just a really talented, adorable little pup.

Sloopy may not be a contestant on "Dancing With the Stars," but he could certainly give the competitors a run for their money the next time someone wants to conga.
