Most people would probably spare a few ounces of their energy to play fetch with an eager dog, but one man wasn’t quite so cooperative.

But it wasn’t really his fault. After all, he was just a halloween decoration.

This golden retriever sure didn’t get the memo, though. He repeatedly places his tennis ball on the decorative skeleton’s lap, hoping he’ll come around and throw it. Everyone else before him had played with him, why wouldn’t this human do the same?

Turns out halloween skeletons aren’t so great at playing fetch.
