Golden Retriever Sweetly ‘Apologizes’ To His Brother After Stealing His Treat

For those of you who have a sibling or two, many types of fights and misunderstandings will surely ensue.

Especially when you have a silly brother who is full of antics and mischief. Some of them are sly enough to take make the most out of the situation.

They will take things that don’t belong to them and act pretty nonchalant about it thinking they will get away with it as usual. And our famous fur friends from the animal kingdom can definitely relate.

But as they say, you can’t be peeved with your partner in crime for too long. Eventually, you have to go and ask forgiveness for your wrongdoings — perhaps with little assistance from outside. Luckily for these doggos, their mom makes it possible to set things right.

Meet Watson and Kiko.

Kiko is the brave warrior of Jenny’s growing family. He was adopted from a close friend when he was four. Whereas Watson is the sweet hero of the bunch.

He was initially given to their mom as an emotional support dog. But not only did he manage to help his mom overcome his social anxiety and depression, but helped his brother Kiko during the roughest patch in his life as well.

These Instagram superstars are melting hearts again in an adorable video that has been going rounds on the internet with their unique reconciliation that will surely elicit “aww” from your mouths.

With a million followers, many people can’t get enough with their cuteness. They are a goofy pair of golden retrievers who like to spread joy in this world through their adventures. Their content is just so heart-warming and this short clip is no different from the rest.

Their mom, Jenny, gives her two fur babies their share for breakfast. However, Kiko, the red one, has been losing his appetite lately due to health concerns. So Kiko decides to skip breakfast and naughty Watson takes advantage of it.

Their mom, perceptive as ever, notices the heavy tension between her children and makes the resolve to intervene. She doesn’t tolerate bad behavior in her house.

And the sooner they make up the better. So she slowly approaches Watson and calls him out for his crime. But even before their mom can talk, guilt is already written all over Watson’s face, making their mom struggle to keep a straight face too.

I can’t blame her, though. I mean how can one stay mad at this big baby as he looks down sheepishly with puppy eyes? It’s just so impossible to resist those charms!

Their mom proceeds to let Watson apologize to his brother Kiko. Watson’s next actions will absolutely steal anyone’s hearts.

Watson goes over to sulking Kiko and surprises everyone when he gives him the tightest hug. The way he expresses his apology is just so sincere and oozing with sweetness, even their mom can’t handle it.

When their mom asks Watson if he is really sorry, he puts his chin on Kiko’s head and the world goes wild. Watson proves once again that he is the uneatable CEO of hugs.

His actions and shining eyes say how sorry he is, and I’m pretty sure Kiko forgives his little crime.

Humans should take a page or two from Watson and Kiko’s relationship. Seek forgiveness and you shall be forgiven. And of course, warm hugs for everyone.

Get ready to be blown away with cuteness overload when you check out this video.

12 Things You’re Doing That Your Dog Hates:

For most people, dogs are not just our pets, they are our family members. When you bring a dog into your life, things just seem to get a lot more exciting. 

There’s few things that are better than coming home after a long day of work and having your beloved furbaby happily greet you at the door.

While we love our pups and they love us back unconditionally, there are a few “annoying habits” that our dogs may not really like.

Here are 12 pet peeves that many dogs have, according to Bright Side:

Hugging- While it’s hard to resist giving our pups a big squeeze, many dogs feel restricted and consider it a controlling act.

Using words more than body language- Of course, dogs can understand a select few words, but we all know that they can’t comprehend every single thing we are saying. Because of this, dogs tend to watch our body language to understand what we are trying to tell them.


Patting their heads– Similar to the hugging, many dogs don’t like when their personal space is invaded. Most would prefer being pet on their back or even scratched behind their ears.

Keeping eye contact– Looking straight into a dog’s eyes without blinking, especially a dog you don’t know, may come across as an act of assertion or dominance. If you’re meeting a new dog for the first time, it’s important not to make strong eye contact right off the bat.


Lacking rules and structure- Since it’s not always easy for dogs and humans to communicate with each other with words, it’s important for them to have rules and structure so that they can feel more comfortable in a routine and have trust in you.

Keeping them on a tight leash- If you hold the leash too tightly, it can make the pup feel stressed or uneasy.

Not letting them explore and smell- The majority of dogs love to see the world around them instead of being cooped up inside all day. They enjoy sniffing around and visiting new places. Keeping them inside and not letting them explore could make them feel depressed or isolated.

Forcing them to interact with dogs/people they don’t like- Putting your dog in an uncomfortable position can end up badly for either them, or for the dog/person that they feel uncomfortable around. Even if your dog is not aggressive, they may act in a defensive manner if they’re forced to be near someone they don’t want to interact with.


Being tense- Pets are very good at sensing our moods and feelings, so if we are tense and stressed, our dogs may start to feel that way too.

Being boring- Dogs are energetic, playful animals and love to have some excitement in their lives. They can feel lonely easily if left home alone all day, so it’s important to show them attention and play with them whenever you get the chance.

Exposing them to strong smells- A dog’s smell is nearly 40 times greater than ours, so certain fragrances like air fresheners or cleaning sprays that may not affect us, could really bother them. Make sure to keep things like this a good distance from them. 

Bathing them- While not all dogs dread bath time, many of them do. Using a slip-resistant mat at the bottom of the tub could help them feel more comfortable. The temperature of the water should be lukewarm, not too hot and not too cold.

Of course, our dogs will love us unconditionally no matter what, but paying attention to the things that bother them could help strengthen the relationship you share with them even more!
