Red Retriever Delights the Internet Because He “Doesn’t Appreciate” Indoor Hats

A dog who has been called an ‘outstanding gentleman’ has drawn attention online for his annoyance with people wearing hats indoors.

In a post on Reddit’s r/rarepuppers forum, the video was shared on Wednesday and has since received more than 14,000 upvotes and hundreds of comments.

The red golden retriever named Mr Knox is captured jumping up to pull a cap off a man’s head before walking away with the cap in his mouth. In the caption alongside the video, the poster and Reddit user AU_Lax10 wrote, “It’s Mr. Knox. He doesn’t like it when you wear hats inside.”

“He’s an old school pup,” one commenter said, “My dad taught me to always take your hat off when you walk in.”

Another viewer of the video wrote, “Mr. Knox is a master of petiquette.”

Another Redditor said, “What an exceptional gentleman.”

Historical etiquette has long determined that men’s hats in particular should always be removed indoors, including private homes, public buildings and places of worship, except where it is customary to wear hats. .

Etiquette-based family business The Emily Post Institute has been offering advice on everyday etiquette since 1922. The institute’s Lizzie Post said Newsweek: “Hat etiquette is one of those rules of etiquette that you can kind of trace back to when knights raised their visors so you could really tell if someone was friend or foe .

“Now we raise our hats or flip them so someone can see your face, especially during a quick introduction or greeting. It’s really about letting your eyes and your face be something with which people can connect with. That’s often why you have differences between whether someone is wearing a beanie or a baseball cap.”

Throughout history, hats have identified social status, and removing your hat has been a well-known sign of respect for centuries.

Now things are a bit different. The post explained, “I think people wear hats indoors most of the time now, especially this favorite baseball cap. Generally, the more formal the setting, the less likely you are to wear a hat. “

When it comes to mealtimes, it’s always polite to take your hat off, Post said: “The dinner table is always one of those places where people will take their hats off for meals. The other time , is when we rise for the national anthem.

“It’s not appropriate to take someone else’s hat off for them,” Post said, “Although lovable dogs get an exception.”

“Good to see my old high school teacher reincarnated as the best of boys,” one commenter joked about the viral post of Mr Knox’s polite antics.

“Mr. Knox is just enforcing the dress code,” another response said.

A Redditor agreed with the dog completely, saying, “It’s very rude to wear a hat indoors, so he’s just the nicest, most polite boy.”

Newsweek has contacted AU_Lax10 for comment.
