Look, not all of us can be morning people. And those of us who are prickly before their cup of coffee shouldn't live in shame. That includes a Golden Retriever on TikTok named Chester, who recently caught a lot of attention online for the attitude he cuts before going out for a walk in the morning. But we're right there with you, Chester. We're not early birds either.
Chester was caught in all his grumpy glory in a video on the @chasin_chester page. The pooch, who hails from Los Angeles, California, can be seen in the footage standing at the top of the stairs. "My dog's face every morning when I tell him to come downstairs for a walk," his owner joked in the video's text overlay. The look on his face is absolutely priceless. "Talk to me when breakfast is pup-pared," his owner joked in the caption.
With over 900,000 views, it seems like other people could feel Chester's pain. "He probably thinks you wanna go and he's doing you a favor by coming," @4ft9crew teased. "He's my spirit animal before coffee," @sasiwisco joked. "Man's like 'you have to be joking, Karen,'" @kate.k.brown quipped. "Just like my mom waking me up for school everyday," @636366gg chimed in.
Thankfully other videos on the dog's page prove that he isn't always quite so frown-y. Like a video of Chester cuddling with his puppy brother Chase. Now that's a happy pupper.

Or as his owner put it, "BRB.. my heart just exploded." Too cute!
