Dog pretending to sleep on owner’s pillow has internet in stitches

A video of a cheeky dog pretending to sleep while he lay on his owner’s pillow gone viral on TikTok, where it gained 2.8 million views at the time of writing.

The video posted on the TikTok account of the dog call Wilmawhich has received at least 541,000 comments, was shared along with a caption that read, “She takes the real piss [frustrated face emoji]†

The video shows the dog slumped on its side on top of a a person’s bed, with his head on a pillow. As the camera zooms in on his face and a voice in the video says, “That’s my pillow,” the dog immediately closes his eyes.

“I know you’re awake, Wilma!” says the voice, as the dog keeps on dozing off.

“You’re a cow,” the person adds, while another close-up of the dog’s face shows his eyes slightly open.

A March 2017 study by researchers at the University of Zurich – which looked at whether dogs can “deceive a human competitor” when it comes to opportunities to get food – showed that dogs are capable of using “tactical deception”.

Marianne Heberlein, who led the study published in the peer-reviewed journal Animal Cognitiontold the new scientist in March 2017 that she was inspired to study canine cheating after observing her own pets.

She said one of them sometimes pretends to see something interesting in the backyard to trick the other into giving up their best place to sleep.

“This kind of thing happens quite often, but it hasn’t been well studied,” Heberlein said.

The researcher said that in her March 2017 study, the dogs showed “impressive flexibility in behavior,” adding that “they not only follow a strict rule, but think about the different options they have.”

The cunning dog in the latest TikTok video let viewers down, like user nothings who wrote that this is “bait.”

Neshemaki said, “That’s a serious attitude. I love it,” while Theelta found “the way she did a little check by opening her eye a little bit” hilarious.

Leothedog said: “[It’s] not your pillow anymore,” while April Martin pointed out, “Actually, that’s her pillow.”
