Lazy pet: Golden Retriever refuses to walk until he gets a “reward”

Lazy pet: Golden Retriever refuses to walk until he gets a “reward”

Golden Retriever Elsie became a star when a video came out in which owner Mike Cook struggles to walk him. After Mike tried unsuccessfully to run her several times, a kind stranger offered her ice cream and she jumped straight to her feet.

Now another shot has appeared, in which that same dog pretends to be dead so he doesn’t have to walk.

The owner said that Elsie’s antics are not driven by the desire to stop walking, but by trying to get what she wants.

“If there’s something she likes, she’ll pretend to be dead until she gets what she wants,” he said.

Cook said she always attracts attention and is not surprised that her antics were recorded by random passers-by.
