This adorable Pomeranian enjoys a morning ritual of playing peek-a-boo under his owner’s bedcovers.
Cheeky Cauchy – from the Instagram @cauchymuffin – takes part in this wide-eyed game every single morning before owner Chris DiScenza heads out to work.
When the polka dot duvet is pulled back, the nine-year-old pooch cracks a huge grin and throws his paws above his head in surprise.
Continuing the fun, when the covers are thrown back a second time, Cauchy flaps his front and back paws excitedly like he’s running on his back.
Chris, from Gainesville, Florida, USA, said: “This peek-a-boo ritual and among other things would last at least half an hour or longer.
“Cauchy makes it very difficult to leave the house in the morning.
“He often makes that pawing gesture when I tease him and rub his chest.
“It’s part of a game we play called ‘attack of the hand’ and he loves it.”
