The first rule of dog logic: when you don’t want to do something, just play dead. Maybe it will go away.
This Golden Retriever probably got too tired of running down the park or he was just having a bad day, but he couldn’t get himself to get up. I think he is saying to the owner: „Let me close my eyes only for a minute“. The guy in this video obviously knows his pup very well, because when nothing else helped, he pulled a special card out of his sleeve – the classic stick-in-the-mouth trick. I must admit, after watching him laying around with no intention to get up, him falling for the oldest trick in the book was completely unexpected… LOL
