The extents dogs will go to to get themselves out of trouble are sometimes just as hilarious as what they did to get into trouble in the first place. One golden retriever named Luna came up with a hilarious way of avoiding her owner's punishment, and it was actually a rather simple idea...
In a TikTok video uploaded by Luna's owner, Jasmine Mendoza, she holds up a sandal that's been brutally chewed up before then, aiming the camera at her naughty fur-child. The dog appears to be pretending to sleep with her tongue hilariously hanging out of her mouth. We think all would have gone as planned for this precious canine had it not been for her opening her eyes only seconds later to see if the coast was clear. But to the poor little pup's misfortune, Jasmine was still standing there, and Luna's whole performance was caught on camera.

"It's the fake sleeping for me," read the text over the hilarious clip, which has been viewed more than 4 million times. Another trick that may have been easier for Luna to pull off without accidentally stepping out of character could have been the adorably guilty-looking puppy eyes dogs are so talented at. But either way, Luna's attempts at escaping punishment for her mischievous behavior seemed to work - "How can I be mad at her," Mendoza captioned the clip. Luna's trick was impressive, considering Jasmine had purchased the now-damaged shoes only the day before her dog's misdeed. And apparently, we're not the only ones who think so.
One user called Meeksmumbo offered their opinion of Luna's performance in the comments section, writing, "She got her tongue out and everything," before adding, "I thought my dog was the drama." LOL - it's precisely the drama that makes us love these little fur kids so much! Another TikTok user hilariously wrote, "She was like you don’t wear these as much anyway," adding two laughing-crying emojis. Others in the comments section sympathized with the sweet little dog. Taiaysha commented, "I'd laugh so hard they would not be in trouble," while another user called Bigeyz26 added, "She's innocent! Look at her face!" How could we disagree with that?
