Golden Retriever's Pitiful Way of Asking Mom to Play Is Just Too Cute

You know what the hardest part of working from home is? Having to tell your dog that you can't play with them. It's so hard! So we don't know how one woman was able to resist her adorable Golden Retriever when they asked her to take a break from her desk. Take a look and decide if you could turn the pup away. 

It must've been so hard for @murphyandmillie to concentrate when her dog came over to her that day. But she really handled it as best as one could.

"POV: when mom's still working, but you're ready to play," the video's onscreen caption reads. That little whine! Those puppy dog eyes! She must have a strong will to tell her dog no. "But is it 4:30 yet…" the video's caption jokes. 

The video has since been watched over 500,000 times, but not everyone agreed with her technique. "When they do that, you have to resist the urge to just drop everything and play with them," @user5567764356 urged. "Totally cried and then side-eyed you to see if the guilt trip was working," @luchid86 pointed out. "Awwwwww, I would probably jus throw the ball a few times. Coz… I am too soft for his sound of disappointment," @leilasteph3 wrote. "Haha that last look was... 'Did it work?'... damn, it didn't," @madmuba kidded. 

Thank goodness for weekends!
