Playing cards is a favorite pastime in many households. Whether you are single, playing solitaire, meeting friends, playing gin rummy, or playing poker, cards are enjoyable. Sometimes, when your golden retriever is your only companion, they can participate in group card games… like shuffling.

When this golden retriever sees the deck of cards, his attention is riveted on his owner’s hands. She carefully splits the deck, lowering both halves to the floor. The good boi can’t control his excitement, anticipating what will happen. Every ounce of his being is focused on her hands and the deck of cards.

The golden retriever’s excitement builds as the cards alternately topple onto one another. He can’t sit still and begins bouncing. His eyes remain glued on the deck as the cards blend from two piles into one.

As the shuffling ends, his mom picks up the cards to finish compressing them. The golden retriever cannot control his excitement. He bounces and jumps, trying to grab the deck from his mom’s hands. She laughs at his antics and is intent on playing keep-away.

If you can’t get enough of this happy pup, his mom has an active TikTok channel, Garlic Head Recipes, with more videos.
