Aug. 3 (UPI) -- A Twitter user shared the story of her mother's confusion upon spotting a brown purse that she initially mistook for a sleeping dachshund.
Hannah Murphy posted on the microblogging site Sunday that her mother was delighted to spot the sleeping dog at a nearby table while dining outdoors, but all was not as it initially seemed.
"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," Murphy tweeted.
The tweet earned several messages of solidarity from fellow Twitter users who had made similar mistakes with other non-canine objects.
