Dog Gets Mistaken for Burglar With Middle-of-the-Night Search for Lost Ball

Do most of your pets know what bedtime means? No playing, barking, or eating? Just snuggles and sleep? You'd think most animals would be tired after a full day of activities. But there's always that one night owl, like this Golden Retriever who almost gave his mom a heart attack with his middle-of-the-night antics. 

A recent TikTok video from @dogfriendlyslc with nearly 2 million views shows an adorable pup who just wanted to keep playing through the night. The mom walks into the living room with a time stamp of 1:49 a.m. She was concerned and thought someone was breaking into the house, but as it turns out, her dog was simply trying to retrieve a lost ball. As @dogfriendlyslc puts it, "Urgent matters call for urgent attention. 😒." 

Aww. We hope she wound up playing with him after all. You could tell how sorry he was for waking her up! "His face said, “Oh, I’m sorry. Did I wake you?” 😂💀," commented @Dawn. He couldn't even look her in the eyes because he felt bad. But hey now that you're up... ha! "The look, “Ugh.. you're making this a bigger deal than it really is, but yes, yes, I would like the ball now” 😂," laughed @m_cook1. 

Of course, he needed it right then and there. What else would he be doing at 1:49 a.m.?! @Jenny Pavlakos said, "Important business mom 😂," and @Cjandguy added, "As a matter of fact, I do need that right now! You have got to love a Golden!" This is his world, and you're clearly just living in it! "He’s like, MUM… I’m sorry that I’m not even sorry about this. Thank you," said @rosielou.

To be fair, we would be concerned, too, if we heard scratching in the middle of the night. Actually, we'd be freaking out! But she must have known it was nothing major with this Golden Retriever as her guard dog.
