So what happens when you light a firework in the presence of an inquisitive dog? Well, said inquisitive dog will run over to the firework and pick it up.
Dogs like picking things up and running away with them, you see. Remember: anything vaguely bone-shaped is essentially up for grabs.
But when it comes to lit fireworks, they don't stop working just because a little doglet has snaffled them up into their jaws - hence this extraordinary video above. Kapow! Kapew! Boom!
And for more dogs doing extraordinary things - but on purpose, this time - check out our dog tricks video gallery below.
