Golden Retriever melts hearts as he enjoys ‘night swimming’ in the garden pool

A golden retriever named Duke has gone viral for disobeying his owner’s curfew, heading to the family pool for a nighttime swim instead.

In a video shared on TikTok by the dog’s owner, who goes by the name Kimberlyclark78, he can be seen relaxing in the pool while ignoring his owner’s attempts to call him.

“It’s 9 o’clock at night. What are you doing in the pool? It’s not time to go swimming. It’s not Saturday. Today is Tuesday, man “, said the owner of Duke in the video.

The dog still hasn’t come out of the pool after being reprimanded yet again, and has actually managed to convince its owner to play fetch late at night in the pool.

“Ah, here’s the alligator,” the dog’s owner said, while Duke refused to give him a high five because he still wasn’t done playing with his ball.

The video, which was first posted on Wednesday, has garnered a lot of attention online, receiving over 630,000 views, 78,000 likes and over 1,200 comments.

According to a recent survey conducted by the American Veterinary Medical Association, dogs are still the most beloved animal in the United States. About 38% of American households own a dog, and there are approximately 76 million pet dogs in the country.

Golden retrievers are very affectionate dogs, according to the American Kennel Club, and they’re great with children and with other pets. They are among the most popular breeds in the country and live an average of 10 to 12 years.
