Shih Tzu Puppy Takes Playing Dead to a Whole Other Level

Playing dead is one of the oldest dog tricks in the playbook, and chances are, you might have taught your dog how to do it in the past, and you’re probably making him or her do it right now!

But, as good as your best friend is at playing dead, there’s a huge chance that your dog won’t be as good as this Shih Tzu puppy from the Philippines.

Paningning, the Shih Tzu puppy, made waves locally after her owner,
Janess Cua, posted photos of her sleeping on her back with an exposed belly, as if she were playing dead. Because of how cute she was at “playing dead”, her photos were quickly snatched up and shared through various social media platforms.

Before the owner knew it, her sleepy pet had become viral, with a Facebook page that has 100,000 followers and still counting. Make sure that you scroll down to brighten up your day with photos of this adorable sleeping puppy.
