Some children will do anything to avoid having to take a nap. Well, apparently the trend applies in the dog world, too.

In a new viral video, we see a mother German Shepherd trying to get some shuteye while her puppy takes a nap. When she realizes the pup has wandered away from his bed (so much energy!), she herds him back in, gently nudging for him to stay put.

As the video ends, we see the puppy slowly sneak back down the porch, and the mother look toward the camera with desperation. (Editor's note: We may be reading way too far into that desperate glance — but it's just 'cause we can relate!)
