When his humans bring home a new toy, this Golden Retriever puppy was not amused. Apparently, they thought it would be a nice companion for him when they were gone — but they were wrong!
The toy looks like a miniature Golden Retriever, and is sensory activated, meaning it will bark and move (which seems like a strange feature, because who wants more barking in their home?).
The pup wanders into the room where his humans are to investigate the new toy and is immediately bewildered by it.
“Who’s a good dog? Who’s a good pup?” His mom asks.
The Golden shoves his nose in the robot’s face before leaping back.
Clearly not that thing, you can imagine the pup responding.
He lifts a paw to bat at it but he’s too far away to make contact. Emboldened, he raises his paw again anyway, so the toy knows he means business.

Who does this little fake dog think he is, stealing his pets?! He leans into his human possessively.
He scoots back and tucks himself under his mom’s leg, where he can observe the strange non-dog from a safe distance. He nudges her right hand, concerned that her left hand continues to pat and pet the little dog imposter.
Excuse me! Those pets are for me!
His human stops petting him and keeps tapping the toy dog saying, “Nice puppy!”
He is confused. He does not want to be replaced! He does not want a friend! What is the meaning of this!
Finally, he’s had enough of this outlandish behavior from his human and this silly little non-dog who’s trying to steal all his attention.
He barks sternly at the toy.
The fake dog continues to exist, and his mom continues to coo, “Who’s a good dog?”
He barks some more and settles back into mom’s legs.
Clearly, he does not like sharing his mom!
Watch this cutie in action!
