Animals Video

This dog continuously tries to play fetch with a skeleton – despite having no body to play with.

Bolt, the 12-year-old Border Collie, tirelessly tries to get a lifeless skeleton to play with him – without realising it can’t move.

Continuing to place his frisbee on the skeleton’s lap, Bolt is shocked when the skeleton doesn’t proceed to throw the frisbee towards him.

This hilarious video was taken by Mary Jayne Jones, in her home in Raleigh, North Carolina.

Mary said: “This day, Bolt was out in the front garden with me. While I was messing around with the skeleton, Bolt assumed it was play time so started to play with it.

“He does freaky things like this all of the time – he has been such a joy in our lives.

“He loves to play with frisbees and balls and he is great with kids and loves his feline brother and canine brother.”
