Dog Owner Shares “Things You Give Up When You Get a Golden Retriever”

Having a dog is much more demanding than most people realize and requires a lot of sacrifice. However, it is all worth it because you have a best friend for life and someone who makes your life much better and brighter.

In a recent viral video shared on TikTok, one dog owner decided to share “things you give up when you get a Golden Retriever.” It is funny, adorable, and quite relatable.

The list of things you need to give up is shown with real-life examples from the poster’s own experience and includes “personal space,” “socks,” “slippers,” “tea towels,” “black clothes,” “eating in peace,” and much more.

“You give up a lot of things when you get a golden retriever, but it’s all worth it!” it says in the caption of the video.

The video ended up getting quite a lot of attention on social media, with TikTok users agreeing that everything on the list is spot on.

“They never grow out of the sock thing. Mine still brings me a sock present every day, and I have no idea how she finds them,” another added.

 “My neighbor’s golden steals my glasses from my face. I visit bi-weekly for the experience,” one person commented.
