This sassy golden retriever became an overnight sensation by absolutely doing nothing except being stubborn and of course, cute.
Golden retrievers are known to be absolute goofballs among a range of countless breeds of dogs. One such golden retriever has stolen the hearts of 45 million TikTok users with his antics. A video shared by retired marine @patrick.ryan22 features a loveable pup lying on its back, refusing to comply with the commands of the owner who holds onto the dog's leash, looking clueless.
The video was captured at the parking lot of Harpoon Brewery in Vermont. The pooch starts protesting in a hilarious manner as he starts rolling on the ground and lying flat on its belly, refusing to get up and leave the location. The owner holds onto his patience while waiting for the dog to get up and move on his own. The caption of the video reads: "This pup didn't want his day at the brewery to end." The owner can be seen pulling out his phone to check something while his dog on the leash continues with his tantrums.
Bystanders who witnessed the tug-of-war between the pet and his owner stopped in their tracks and some people even passed remarks off camera on the amusing situation. "He is like 'Well, guys I guess we are going to stay here'," one person says over the video. "He doesn't want to leave," another person adds. As a few more minutes pass, the owner walks around his stubborn pup and then tugs on the golden retriever's harness to get him up and moving. "He's like, 'I don't think so bud, My day's not over yet,'" one of the narrators says as the dog once again plops down on the ground. "And he's gonna go back on his back," the other bystander adds.
But it seems the dog had made up its mind and was not willing to move an inch away from the parking lot of the brewery. "He doesn't know what to do," one of the bystanders continues describing the situation as the dog's owner tries several ways to move the pet pooch somehow in the clip. Finally, the owner comes up with an ultimate plan which proves to be fruitful. He gets his dog to roll over somehow and manages to scoop him up in his arms as the duo finally moves to their next destination.
The laughing onlookers are delighted at the sight of the pooch's defeat as the owner moves the pet toward the cars in the parking lot. TikTok users couldn't stop themselves from making funny remarks about the stubborn canine as well. @cmboyd86 joked: "I mean if you are not carried out of a winery or brewery did you really have a good time?" @winnie_winifred wrote: "Carried out like a drunk friend." @ohshute commented: "My golden does this for attention. he wants everyone to see how cute he is...LOL."
@rabs1116 added: "The walk of shame back to the car had me dying." @flaggster73 pointed out: "Sometimes you need a wingman to carry you home from the brewery." The sassy golden retriever might have thrown an inexplicable tantrum outside the brewery but ended up becoming an overnight sensation on social media where dog lovers showered a lot of love for the pooch.
