Like a modern day Narcissus, this dog has found the one friend who’s just as beautiful as he is — her own reflection. While the humans of the house were doing what a human does, this puppy discovered the mirror and it was love at first sight.

This dog thinks its reflection is another dog intruding into the home and barks to chase it away. Too funny! Owner explains that his puppy was very excited when he first saw his own reflection in the mirror. Apparently, prior to that, this doggy was never as excited!

Researchers use a mirror test to determine whether subjects perceive mirrors reflections as belonging to them. While dogs have failed this test, this doesn't necessarily mean they lack self-awareness, only that the mirror doesn't engage their interest.

In addition, when <a href="" target="_blank">dogs</a> look into a mirror, they typically have one of two responses. They may bark or try to invite play as if they were staring at another dog, or they may appear to do nothing. Dogs who perceive the mirror reflection as another dog and either bark or invite the dog to play tend to lose interest when their actions get no response. After this first experience, they often ignore their reflection in the mirror.

Watch how this <a href="" target="_blank">Corgi</a> puppy reacts after spotting his own reflection in the mirror for the very first time. It took him a few seconds, but he eventually figured it out!
