A sassy dog has gone viral on TikTok after throwing a tantrum when his owners told him it was time to go to bed.

At one point the pooch even barks ‘no’ after being told ‘it is bedtime’ by his frustrated owner, who revealed that the episode went on for 20 minutes after the camera stopped rolling.
Speaking out! A viral TikTok video captures the brilliant moment a husky named Kona barks what sounds like the word ‘no’ at his owners when he is told to come inside
Staying strong: The adorable pup, who lives in Colorado, threw a tantrum when he was told it was bedtime
The clip, which was posted with the caption ‘bedtime tantrum’, begins with Kona lying in the snow outside his Colorado home, refusing to look at his owners as they attempt to lure him inside.
‘It is bedtime, let’s go,’ Kona’s owner says, prompting the pup to bark back, making a noise that sounded just like he said ‘no’ to the request.
As the exasperated pet owners continue to try and call their dog inside, while stifling laughs over his tantrum, the pup begins howling furiously, lifting his head towards the sky while emitting a series of long groans.
The loud noises clearly provoked the anger of Kona’s neighbors, with his owners admitting that ‘the neighbors hate us’ as someone in the background is heard yelling over to ask them to keep the noise down.
‘It is 10 o’clock at night,’ the dog’s owner continues. ‘Let’s go, inside, come on.’
Furious: In the viral TikTok clip, Kona is heard howling as his owners try and coax him inside
Causing trouble: According to the video caption, Kona’s tantrum went on for 20 minutes after the cameras stopped rolling, with his owners joking that their ‘neighbors hate them’
However this simply motivates Kona to howl even louder, with his owner confessing that the tantrum ‘went on for another 20 minutes’ after the cameras stopped rolling.
But while Kona’s neighbors and owners might not have been impressed with his behavior, his TikTok fans were delighted by the clip – which racked up more than 12.5 million views and 2.8 million likes.
Many people were astounded at Kona’s apparent grasp of the English language, with many commenting to marvel over how his owners had managed to teach him to speak.
‘He straight up said NO! I love it!’ one person commented on the video, while another joked: ‘There’s no way I could get mad at that!’
Other husky owners chimed in to share their sympathy, while revealing that their dogs also demonstrate similar behavior.

Fan club! Kona boasts an impressive 240,000 fans on TikTok, with viewers going gaga over his sassy personality
‘My dog is part husky and he hates coming inside in the winter,’ one wrote. ‘He doesn’t care how cold it is and would stay out for hours.’
‘Husky tantrums are my favorite!’ one person added.
Another pointed out how talkative many huskies seem to be, writing: ‘The huskies all do seem to be trying to talk with their owners! Sounds like he’s picked up one word for sure!’
Kona’s chatty personality has earned him quite the following on TikTok, where his owners regularly post videos of him barking and howling in response to their commands.
In another video, it was revealed that the dog ‘loves the snow’ – which may well explain why he was so reluctant to come inside when his owners asked. He has also been filmed refusing to go out for walks, and blatantly ignoring his owners while sprawled on the couch having a nap.
The precious pup has more than 240,000 followers on the app, and his videos have accumulated more than 3.2 million likes in just a matter of months.
