A dog owner has captured the moment his corgi tried to play with his own reflection in a mirror in a heart-warming video.
Eric Smith, a literary agent in Ann Arbor, Michigan, shared the video of his pet dog Augustus playing with a toy bone on Twitter where it quickly went viral.
In the video the playful pooch, nicknamed Auggie, can be seen approaching his own reflection, which he has mistaken for a second corgi, and attempting to interact with it.
Auggie scratches the bone when his reflection doesn’t respond to him, in an attempt to start playing.
He can be heard whining and stares at his mirror-image, becoming increasingly frustrated that it won’t play with him.
In the end the pup picks up the toy and lies down in a huff, finally giving up on his game.
