Kids and dogs are a lot alike in that doctor visits terrify them. Unlike kids, however, you can’t bribe dogs with after-doctor ice cream, so a lot of owners use the mostly foolproof trick of convincing their dog it’s walk time.

You can only pull that trick so many times, however, before the dog gets wise, which results in hilarious tug of war matches between pet and owner, as depicted in this adorable picture from a Japanese shiba owner.

The owner says the shiba somehow figured out that something was amiss about their regularly scheduled walk time and froze in place, refusing to budge. You can see the sense of betrayal in his eyes, as if the dog is thinking:

“Wow. Such betray. Much angry. Sad shibe.”


By the way, if you’re looking for a better way to convince your pet to let you take him/her to the vet, Louis CK has a great recommendation: just punch them repeatedly in the face.
