Duke the Golden Hilariously Snubs Mom’s Pool Exit Requests



Quick Smiles:

  • Duke the golden retriever can’t resist lounging in the family pool, even when he’s not allowed.
  • Owner Kimberley Clark’s TikTok video captures Duke ignoring her pleas to get out of the pool.
  • The video has garnered over 50 million views, with the hashtag #dukehasapooladdiction.

Duke the golden retriever has a one-track mind: he just wants to chill in his family’s swimming pool, even when it’s off-limits.

One Wednesday morning at 7 a.m., his owner, Kimberley Clark, discovered him in the pool when she was getting ready for work. She captured their interaction in a TikTok video that has since gone viral.

In the video, Clark tells Duke, “You are not supposed to be in the pool. We’re not playing ball. We need to get out. You need to get out right now.”

But Duke has other plans. As soon as she finishes her sentence, he pushes away from the pool wall and slowly drifts into the center of the pool, seemingly unbothered by her requests. He even appears to be searching for a ball while his owner repeatedly tells him to get out.

As summer comes to an end, let Duke inspire you to make the most of the pool fun while it lasts. Just be sure to keep an eye on the temperature and make sure your furry friend can swim.
