Animals Video

One naughty dog has stubbornly refused to hop off her new favourite stage, the living room table.

As the old saying goes, when the Cats are away, the Mice will play. In this case it was more like when the owners are out, the Dog will claim the table.

Owner Kathryn Hopkins, AGE,  was pulling up to her house when she decided to check in on her five-year-old dog, Topaz, through her security video app.

To Kathryn’s surprise, instead of finding Topaz chowing down on some food, taking a nap or playing with a toy, she found her beloved statuesque pet standing triumphantly on top of the living room table 

Through the use of the security camera’s speaker, Kathryn demanded that Topaz gets off the table.

With a confused and cheeky look in her eye, Topaz stared down at the barrel of the camera and stubbornly stood tall on her favourite spot.

Kathryn said: “Topaz has stood on the table before.

“It usually lasts for about a minute, but I have no idea how long she stands on the table before I start filming.”
