- Monty the dog tries out a new tactic for playing tug of war
- The Beagle plays dirty against his opponent, Otis, taking the fight lying down
- Otis is quick to take advantage of his pal’s unconventional tactics
They say you should let sleeping dogs lie, but one Beagle has shown that the same can be said for waking dogs too after engaging in the world’s most lacklustre game of tug of war.
A hilarious video shows the moment Monty the Beagle decided he would take his battle with pal Otis lying down after the pair of mutts embarked on a game of tug of war.
Rather than pulling against Otis, as is customary in tug of war, Monty decides to opt for a different tact and allows his opponent to drag him along too, as he acts as dead weight on the floor.
Despite Monty’s tricky tactics, however, a valiant Otis is soon seen emerging triumphant, pulling not only the rope but also his opponent across the half-way marker – a purple blanket.
The location of the dog’s competition is unknown.
When Monty agreed with Otis to a game of tug of war, he didn’t think he should have to get up for the occasion
Monty held onto his side of the bargain, keeping his chops around the toy rope, and showed a new kind of resistance in the traditional test of strength
It wasn’t long though before Otis emerged triumphant, pulling both the rope and his opponent across the finish marker
