Russell Jones, from London, took to social media to share footage of his pet lurcher imitating his limp as he walked along a residential street. During the footage, the canine raises his paw above the ground and hops next to his owner. The dog continues to keep a watchful eye over Mr Jones as he hops towards his house. Mr Jones later explained that he had paid £300 in vet fees and X-rays for his limping canine - only to discover the dog was copying him out of sympathy.
I think it is real. I saw the footage and both man and dog were certainly limping, the fella being on crutches and plastered. (Plastered as in wearing a cast, not the plastered most of us would prefer)
When our little Yorkie was a pup he broke his back leg. In later life , if he'd done something naughty (quite often), he'd run off on three legs.Unfortunately the little rascal would sometimes forget which back one he had broken and lift the wrong leg.
