This adorable Golden Retriever doesn’t recognise his own tail, thanks to his new fetching winter coat, as he hilariously spins around in confusion.

Tiny puppy Ollie was left in a state of confusion in Victoria, Australia, as his dazzling purple raincoat caused the 10-month-old to not identify his own derriere, causing him to attempt to chase it.

Looking on in confusion, brother Toby can’t believe his eyes as he watches his silly sibling spin and twirl relentlessly, attempting to get a better look at the golden spear of fur that keeps ‘sneaking up’ on him.

After several attempts, Ollie eventually concedes, looking up at owner Josh Mackow defeatedly, accepting that he may never figure what the source of the furry mystery that is poking out of the rear of his jacket is.

Josh, a digital marketer, originally from the UK, said: “It was the cutest thing ever.

“He’s always doing funny things, but this is the first time we’ve seen him chase his tail, so it was great to capture it on film.

“His tail is so small, I’m not sure he’s ever noticed it before.

“I think the coat was rubbing against his tail, bringing his attention to it for the first time.

“He was completely fascinated by it, I didn’t think he was going to stop.

“I think he got a bit dizzy after a while, but he still enjoys spinning around trying to get a better look, even now.”
