Polly, an adorable golden retriever’s blatant display of favoritism has charmed the hearts of viewers worldwide.

Polly’s unmistakable preference for her human father was showcased in a viral TikTok video that has garnered over 800,000 views since its upload on July 24. In the video, Polly’s mom tries to initiate a cozy cuddle, but Polly’s attention remains fixed on her dad. With a gentle paw swipe, she amusingly dismisses her mom’s affectionate advances.

The viral clip, captioned “Daddy’s girl through and through,” captures a universal sentiment with a touch of humor. The video speaks volumes about the dynamics of Polly’s household, where the family members not only share their lives with their four-legged friend but also embrace her quirks and personality.

The humans behind Polly’s delightful escapades, who manage her dedicated account (@MissPolly_The_Goldie), responded to the endearing situation with laughter, showcasing their understanding and appreciation for the unique bond between Polly and her dad.

The interaction between Polly and her dad resonates beyond the viral video, prompting over 82,000 likes and more than 5,200 comments from users on TikTok.
