A golden retriever has gone viral around the world for refusing to get up while on a walk.
The Aussie pooch named Elsie was filmed by a woman on TikTok having absolutely none of it during her walk on the Gold Coast.
Her owner Mike Cook was captured trying everything in the book to get the dog to move; from pulling on its lead, pretending to walk off without her and even picking her up and placing her on her feet.
But nothing worked.
The hilarious moment was uploaded to social media, where it's been viewed by tens of millions of people.
Kayla Evans filmed the clip and told the ABC: "We were just out with our neighbours one afternoon, having some drinks we were watching the dogs walking past.
"And this man walks past and all of a sudden his dog just stops and does not want to move.
"It went on for a few minutes and it was just so funny, we were in tears we just could not get over it."
Some people on social media thought the golden retriever was desperate to keep the walkies going while others wondered whether she had been walked so much during isolation that she was getting over exercised.
But Mike reckons this naughty outburst from Elsie was due to her not having her dinner yet and honestly that is such a mood.
When you grow into an adult, we have to leave behind the days where we could throw a tantrum at the drop of a hat. It's good to see Elsie hasn't lost that streak just yet.
Mike has told 7News that this happens all the time.
"If she's not in the mood for walking, you're just not going anywhere," he said. "She'll just drop, play dead. There's nothing you can do.
"You've just got to do pretty much whatever the dog wants.
"She is just a really moody dog. If she doesn't want to do something, she won't do it."
This isn't Elsie's first touch with online fame either.
In 2017, the dog went viral for doing this exact same thing in front of a bunch of onlookers at Burleigh Hill on Queensland's Gold Coast.
Everyone around Elsie couldn't stop laughing and the dog seemed to be only encouraged by her new supporters.
