This cuddly toy collector had her work cut out when she lost her dog among this teddy bear collection while spring cleaning.
The woman, who was not named but is from the subprovincial city of Shenyang in the Chinese province of Liaoning, is the owner of an extensive collection of cuddly teddy bears.
However, the collection does attract dust and they need a regular spring clean to keep them spick and span.
While she was in the middle of the cleanup, her pet dog – an appropriately named Teddy dog (Shichon) – had been interfering by attempting to play with the toys and eventually she picked him up and dumped him in the middle of them so she could get on with the task at hand.
However, she said that when she wanted to take a break she looked for her dog, and found he had fallen asleep in the middle of the toys and she could not find him.
She said she then grabbed her phone and filmed the amusing incident to share online and see if any of her pals could spot him.
She said she was amazed when the video of the cute dog among the cuddly toys then went viral.
She said: “I have around 200 vintage teddy bears, although in this video there are 200 vintage teddy bears and one very real cuddly dog.”
The video was shot on 4 July and later shared online where it quickly went viral.
She said the dog was known locally as a teddy dog, also known as a Shichon, which is a mixed breed dog–a cross between the Shih Tzu and the Bichon Frise dog breeds.
Shichons go by a few other names including the Shih Tzu-Bichon mix, Zuchon, and of course the Teddy Bear dog.
