mimics dog

This is the adorable moment a toddler mimics her dog by lapping up water off a high chair.

Little Gianna Cody shunned the usual method of drinking from her sippy cup after watching her pet dachshund Rocky.

Tipping her bottle upside down, the inventive two-year-old creates a little puddle on the plastic table at home in Long Island, New York, USA.

Leaning over for maximum access, Gianna flicks her tongue at the refreshing liquid until it’s all gone and she has to pour more water out.

Uncle Raymond said: “We couldn’t get over what she was doing, it was just too funny.

“Gianna is very random in what she does.

“She’s constantly doing sporadic things but I’ve never seen her replicate Rocky before.

“In total, it must have carried on for at least 10 minutes.”
