Dogs are incredibly amusing animals. Each dog has its own colorful personality, preferences, and habits, which keeps most dog owners on their toes. These animals can be affectionate and sweet one moment, then grumpy and stubborn the next.
When it comes to regular activities and exercise, dogs can also have their likes and dislikes, much to most owners’ exasperation. Some dogs love playing around and roughhousing all day, delighting in the mini-adventures they have with their families. Then again, some love to laze around and stubbornly refuse any form of physical activity.
Take, for example, a particular dog who was caught on video for giving her poor dad a hard time during their routine walk. Elsie, a Golden Retriever, was a tenacious pup. She knew what she wanted, and it usually didn’t coincide with what her owner Mike Cook wanted, unfortunately.
This determined pup wanted nothing more than to stay at home and relax. However, Mike wanted the lazy dog to work on her health and exercise more. A hilarious video of these two became popular online, showing Elsie’s refusal to follow her dad on what was supposedly a simple stroll through their neighborhood.
Walking was typically an activity that dogs loved to do, but with Elsie, it became a challenging task to accomplish. Not only did this obstinate dog sulked and plopped down on the pavement, she even resisted the urge to go after Mike when he pretended to leave her on the sidewalk.
Mike explained that since Elsie was looking forward to dinnertime, taking a walk around the block was the last thing on her mind. It took the pair around 20 minutes to walk around 100 meters from the house but made it back home in 2 minutes flat. This dog didn’t want to miss dinner!
