Border Collie Hand Puppet Fiercely Guards a Yummy Bone When Real Dogs Try to Steal It Away

Published by:

Just For Laughs Gags, a comedy group based in Québec, Canada, decided to play a prank in which a border collie hand puppet fiercely guarded a yummy bone when the real dogs tried to steal it away.
