Someone’s mom swooned over a cute dog until she realized the dog was a someone’s purse
A woman is sharing photos of the cute little dachshund her mom saw resting at someone’s feet in a restaurant, because the dog her mother was looking at was actually another woman’s purse.
The internet is here for it.
Hannah Murphy was enjoying a meal on a restaurant patio with her mother when mom insisted she take a peek at the adorable little doggy resting underneath another patron’s chair. Hannah followed her mom’s gaze, because who doesn’t want to scope a cutie patootie pooty dog?
Except the darling mutt Momma Murphy was swooning over wasn’t actually a dog at all. It was a purse.
my mother was giggling at this and told me to "take a look at that adorable dachshund, he's sleeping", she was looking at a purse: pic.twitter.com/ZyNKaLMxKI

Honest mistake, right? Sure.
Hannah’s tweet has gone viral, having been retweeted more than 45,000 times and liked by more than 134,000 people. Everyone is enjoying the laughs, and many are sharing similar cases of mistaken identity.
Some people offered proof.
I just had the exact same experience at an airport bar in Houston the other day lol pic.twitter.com/F3YRYaCFbb— Brandon (@TheBrandonLeigh) July 30, 2017
One woman was unembarrassed by this fairly embarrassing mistake…
I did this once, smiling hard at a giant bag of yard waste because I thought it was a sweet slumpy old Golden Retriever.— Kate Tuttle (@katekilla) July 30, 2017
Other people’s confusion is slightly more acceptable?
My son pointed to a lady carrying a feather duster the other day and told me that that dog was so cute.— Art of AMA (@absolute_ama) July 31, 2017
What a shame. That would have been one fabulous dog!
As for this guy, I’m just glad there was no dog involved in the grilling!
Bah this happened to me a few dyas ago also 🤦🏽♂️ pic.twitter.com/I5plVCZnJp— jerry (@RumorHasITtunes) July 31, 2017
And let’s not forget our feline friends. But I wouldn’t tell this cat you thought a lump of clothes were him. By the looks of him, and based on our knowledge of every other cat on earth, he will hold a grudge.
We hope Hannah’s mom isn’t too embarrased by her viral fame. After all, not only is it understandable that one would be on the lookout for pettable pooches, but it’s clear that this is not an isolated phenomenon.
Besides, it could have been worse. At least Hannah’s mom only saw a little dog. Mollie here thought the restaurant allowed actual wildlife onto the premises.
i thought it was a baby deer wtf— mills (@millieem_) July 31, 2017
She could probably use some laser surgery.
But as all those tweets make clear, everyone has made such innocent mistakes.
One time, before I put my contacts in, I had an entire conversation with an air horn before realizing it wasn’t my toddler. In my defense, the noise they both make is remarkably similar.
