Bello the dog throws hissy fit after being told to stop swimming

Poor Bello.

The German Shepherd just wants to keep on swimming in the river.

Owner Laura Gibbs repeatedly keeps telling Bello it’s time to get out of the water.

Bello’s reaction is theatrical.

Anyone with a three-year-old will recognize the tactics.

First, Bello tries to ignore the words, turning away from her owner and pretending that she doesn’t hear anything.

Then she starts to protest.

When Gibbs tells Bello it’s time to go, the dog shakes her head and makes again deeper into the shallows.

Repeated warnings ensue and Bello’s whines and makes pleading entreaties to stay.

It works.

Gibbs notes:

She got to keep swimming after her wonderful theatrical performance. No dogs’ hearts were actually broken in the making of this video.
