This wonderful video shows the heartwarming moment a faithful beagle played dead – just to stop his owners from leaving the house.
Flash, a six-year-old beagle pulls the stunt every time his beloved owners try to leave the family home in Aberdeenshire.
Ever the faithful pooch, Flash also pulls the stunt whenever one of the pack goes upstairs to bed.
The act is so convincing that when one of them try’s to drag him across the floor, Flash lies stone dead much to the delight of his family.
Despite the loyal behaviour, Flash’s owners are having to take special measures to stop him pulling his tricks.
They now put him in the kitchen before they leave the house.
Flash’s owner, Sarah Norris said: “It’s not great when you’re in a hurry but it’s very amusing,”
