Golden retriever's worried reaction to owners having fake argument melts hearts

A sensitive golden retriever has melted hearts by running away whenever his owners have a row – prompting them to tease him with fake arguments.

Stark is a lovable dog who "chooses peace over drama" as seen in the cute clip by Instagram user @ivydurkin who co-parents the pooch with her husband.

In the clip, Stark is jumping on the bed and trying to cuddle both of his favourite people at the same time.

Trying to get some peace, the dog's owner starts an Oscar-worthy performance of fighting with his wife.

"I don't understand why you have to do this," he snaps in perfect imitation of someone starting a row.

His girlfriend hits back with: "Well I don't understand why you have to do this!"

He says: "Well I guess sometimes I just don't make any sense."

She retorts: "You don't make any sense!

"No, you don't make any sense!" he says.

As they go back and forwards in an endless loop, the dog puts his ears back and scrambles off the bed, and runs out of the room.

Shared on Instagram by the @dogs page, it explains: "Our dog will only leave us alone if we fight."

The clip was "liked" more than 245,000 times since it was uploaded on October 28 and racked up thousands of comments.

One person commented: "At least he knows how to mind his own business."

Another viewer joked: "He said, 'I'll give you guys some peace.'"
