The joke is that a dog is always trying to chase its tail. This is an especially popular imagery in cartoons, where it is usually used for comedy! Here is the thing though – as any Mom or Dad knows, this is based on real behaviour!
How many times have we watched our pup chase their tail for ten minutes, totally entranced by how charming the behaviour is?
There is just something so fun about the way it moves, and it is adorable to just watch it whip about! But pups take one step further in the enjoyment of their own waggy body part, and will oftentimes try to catch it, just like this Beagle pup!
Spinning around the axis of his butt on the kitchen floor, this pup takes a few tries but finally successfully catches his tail in his mouth! His quest now complete, he uncurls and sits upright, almost a little dazed by the sheer magnitude of the action he has just accomplished!
