Golden Retriever Who Can't Sleep Without Mom Holding His Paw Is Melting Hearts

We all have a certain routine that helps us get to bed. Some people have to shower before getting into bed or watch TV to fall asleep. For others, it's better to fall asleep next to someone you love. And for some, they can't even fall asleep without being with their person. That's how this adorable Golden Retriever is. 

TikTok user @emzieees shared a clip showing what her dog needs before drifting off to dreamland. When he's ready to take a nap or go to bed, he gets up on the couch, and he taps his little paw on the couch as if he's summoning over his mom. LOL. And being like any parent would be, she obviously goes over to him. Your heart will just melt when you see what he needs from her so he can fall asleep!  

Aww! Is that not the sweetest thing you've ever seen?! Just a simple paw holding was all he needed. If this mom didn't know it by now, it's Frank's world and she's just living in it. LOL. 

But even when she gets up and goes over to him, it wasn't done correctly! Frank had to have his paw on top, obviously! @Sara Miller said, "The look at the know better 😅." Another user added, "Haha the sassy snoot because he wanted his hand on top lmao." Again, this is his world! "I'm Franklin's attorney and his contract stipulates mandatory paw holding while falling asleep," commented @Angie Tawfilis. Sorry mom, that's just the way it is! Didn't you read the fine print when you got Frank?! 

If you're not up for the challenge of paw holding, we'll gladly take over! As @Nacy Mella put it, "Say the word, I’ll quit my job and hold Frank’s paw so he could sleep peacefully." And you think we're kidding...
