Most dogs are happy to play fetch all day, every day, but sometimes, even the most energetic pups just want to relax.
In this funny clip, a pampered pooch sits on the couch as his favorite little human tries to make him play. After throwing the ball across the room and doing his very best to persuade his four-legged friend, it becomes clear to the boy that the pup just wants to chill out for a while.
Instead of being bossy, however, the understanding little guy goes a different (and way more adorable) route.
It's nice for little kids to get a lesson in patience every now and then, and if you asked this little man, he'd probably tell you that his best buddy is his favorite teacher.
