Dog Left Motionless After Reflection Makes Her Question Reality

Have you ever glanced in the mirror and been taken off guard for a moment? Perhaps the lighting hit weird or you weren’t expecting to see a reflection in the first place.

It can be quite startling, and it’s not just humans that this happens to. Animals can also be surprised by their reflections and it’s quite adorable when it happens!
