This Is Without A Doubt One Of The Smartest Dogs I Have Ever Seen…

I fully realize that this is a very bold statement, but once you’ve seen the footage, you’ll probably agree with me. I mean, I know that dogs are very clever and even so every now and then they leave me speechless… Like this one.

So, it all started with Reddit user washedupwornout sharing an amazing GIF titled descriptively:

Man trying to return a dog’s toy gets tricked into playing fetch.

What we see is something extraordinary. Apparently no one wanted to play with this dog, so he devised a clever strategy for luring stray humans into playing fetch. The rest, as they say, is history and it’s best captured into this comment:

There is no escape now. Only playtime.

You may not be surprised to learn that, in just nine hours after being posted, this image has been viewed more than 2 million times. Fortunately, another commenter points us to the GIF’s source — this video. So, here are both — the video first, then the GIF, enjoy!

And here is the GIF:
