Anyone eagerly awaiting dinner would probably get upset if their meal ended up consisting of three tiny dog biscuits. According to this dog, who ended up carrying a knife in protest, things are no different.

Instagram user Hailey dared to film her dog Dunkin's reaction to only getting 3 three bits of kibble instead of his normal portion. It's safe to say the Lab did not appreciate the humor.

The video begins with the dog's owner saying that she is going to try out a "challenge". Going to feed the dog, an excited black labrador, she leans over and only puts three tiny dog biscuits into the bowl.

When seeing the tiny amount of food available to him, the doggo pauses for a moment, looking quizzically and skeptically at his human. Nothing happens at first, but the dog gradually looks more and more devastated.

Fed up with his owner's food-based antics, the dog turns away from the bowl, hoping that when he turns back more will have materialized. When nothing changes, it becomes time for more drastic measures, it's time to carry a knife.

Dunkin disappears behind the kitchen island for a moment, and returns...carrying a big knife in his his. As he moves closer towards the camera, his owner yelps out loud and the video abruptly ends.

One user created the perfect tagline for the video: "Less foodo, you get the stabbo". Another even addressed the biggest mystery behind the clip: "How did he even get the knife?"

As Dunkin and the tiny dog that threw an equally scary tantrum showed, you really shouldn't mess around with a hungry hound.
