Internet Loves Dog’s Dramatic Reaction After Caught Chewing Mom’s Shoe

You’ve heard of “crying wolf”, but what about “crying dog”?

A golden retriever has gone viral for his hilarious reaction to being caught eating his owner’s shoes.

In a post shared on TikTok on Tuesday, April 26 by user @cleezus, which can be viewed here, Beau the dog gets a good scolding after his mom comes home to find his shoes destroyed.

In the clip, cleezus, real name Cleo, can be heard shouting, “No, what is that? What have you done?” as she and her partner walk through the door.

She then turns to Beau, who immediately begins to “sob”. When he’s finished his award-winning performance, he runs to his owner for a hug.

TikTokers loved the dog’s cry for attention, with the post receiving over 7.2 million views, over a million likes and 6,900 comments.


Aubrey Mullens commented: “Say you forgive him now.”

Yazzi said, “Wait, is it okay to cry and then get hugged by forgiveness [pleading face emojis] I can’t with gold medals.”

To which Cleo replied, “Don’t fall for it, he does this act every time. He knows he was mean, he repeated it.”

It’s no secret that dogs love to chew, but this is especially true for teething puppies and adolescent dogs (6 months to 2 years old). This includes Beau, who, according to a previous video of Cleo, was born in late 2020. However, dogs of all ages like to chew on things, even if they’re not always edible (for example, this husky that’s got caught chewing on a door).

A 2021 study published in Applied animal behavior and science found that young dogs preferred to nibble on items such as clothes and shoes, while older dogs were more likely to chew on their bed or resting place. However, all dogs seemed to like chew pillows. To prevent your dog from feeding on household items, make sure he has a sufficient supply of chew toys, bones, or snack sticks. If the problem becomes excessive, your dog may be suffering from separation anxiety or another behavioral problem, so talk to your vet to check that everything is okay.

Several users have suggested that Beau was in fact framed and that Rue the cat, who can be seen very close to the destroyed shoes in the video, should be investigated.

Busymum01 said: “The cat is definitely responsible.”

Mikey agreed, writing: “May I point out that the cat is closest to the proof…blame him.”

However, Cleo ruled out the cat as a suspect, saying, “Rue’s 3-month-old kitten teeth could NEVER.”

Beau isn’t the only dog ​​to use manipulative tactics to avoid getting scolded. Earlier this month, another golden retriever named Luna was filmed pretending to be asleep to get out of trouble.

Newsweek contacted @cleezus for comment.
