It's happened - the balance of power between dog and man has dramatically reversed.
On the streets of Chengdu, China, the first victim of this terrifying phenomenon has been spotted gently trotting alongside his new owner.
Ok, that's probably not true. But the sight of a dog riding a Segway is still a rather rare thing.
The surreal scene was photographed by Long Yao who said: "The doggy also knows to slow down and waits for the lights. It was so cute!"
Cute/ominously terrifying, you decide...
