I get it now...Amazon Prime is trying to kill me with cute. The Tiny Pony and now this?
 
First of all, Golden Retrievers are about the most gentle and docile of the larger breeds.
 
Next, the young brainiac couple decides to disguise to the dog...as a large cat??
Not only humiliating the poor dog but they wonder why it's jumping on the furniture, knocking off lamps and trying to sleep on the back of the couch.

I can't complain but sometimes I still do.

I just surprised this 'disguise the dog' thing does not bother anyone else!

I actually like this one simply because Amazon provided "new dad" with a way for man's best friend to cut through all the baby brattery. 

The dog is clearly the victim here, but even if he (or she, they never show us the undercarriage as far as I know) is humiliated by his new do, he's back in the mix now that he's on good terms with the recent poop and puke spewing addition to the family.

That's the other side of the coin for me... and why this spot gets a thumb's up from me. New dad thought enough of his dog to come up with a workaround to get the little pink ball of stink to accept him (or her) because she's obviously the larva state of a future crazy cat lady. 

That and my old dog wore costumes for Halloween and loved them, so much so that he would even try to get them out of the closet himself, so I can't really fault new dad for dressing his dog up. LOL

Like I said, they are killing me with cute.
 
My parents raised show quality WHWTs.
 
We had 'dress up the dog' days too.

I hate this commercial - not for the content, but the over saturation. Seriously, I kept count one night and it played 10 times in one hour.

Wouldn't it have been easier to get her a stuffed dog to get her used to the real one?

Just another reason babies will want almost anything in order to calm down.

LOLYup. I would shop Amazon Prime if they would redo the commercial so after we see the PuppyLion, it immediately attacks the singer of that stupid song.

Yes! This is why I hate it too. At first it was cute, but damn, they play it way too often. FXX is the guilty offender here. Every. Commercial. Break.

Say something clever here...

No, I'm too lazy. Imagine it yourself.

The song. That damn song. And they play it way too much.

I had never seen it before.

Truly one of the most nauseating ads I've seen.

Thanks a lot, aka ron....

Well, looking on the bright side, I had that extra year of life in which I lived without the suffering I'm now experiencing...

That's a plus!!!
