Let me in! Hilarious moment baffled dog gets ‘stuck’ behind foil streamers and refuses to walk through them even when his owner offers a treat
- Winston, a three-year-old Cavapoo, was stopped in his tracks by party streamers
- Owner Maylyn Darrow, 25, from Alabama, hung the decorations across hallway
- Ms Darrow filmed the moment the scared pup became ‘stuck’ behind the decor
This is the hilarious moment dog refuses to walk through party streamers, even when his owner tries to lure him with a piece of cheese.
Winston, a three-year-old Cavapoo from Alabama, was stopped in his tracks by the curtain of foil streamers, apparently mistaking them for a solid door.
Owner Maylyn Darrow, 25, a pop singer and songwriter, said she had hung the decorations across her hallway to celebrate her husband passing a big exam.
But the singer soon realised her pup wasn’t a big fan of the glittering decor when he became ‘stuck’ behind the streamers and refused to budge.
In a clip which has since gained over three million views and 612,800 likes on TikTok, Winston can be seen sitting behind the blue curtain seemingly unsure of how to navigate it.
Ms Darrow tells her confused dog: ‘Winston that’s not a door, you can come through that.’
The owner even tries to tempt the pooch by placing a chunk of cheese on the other side of the curtain to lure him through, to no avail.
She finally parts the streamers to let Winston get to the tasty snack.
After viewing the footage, one TikTok viewer joked ‘Winston has trust issues.’

One user suggested: ‘You’ve got to put your hand through it to pet him to show him it’s not a wall’.
