WATCH THE DOG TO THE LEFT OF THE VIDEO.
The moment a dog leads its owner on a hilarious wild goose chase down the main road of Kawakawa has been caught on camera.
Lucie Green's partner James McDonald posted video of what at first seems like a normal street scene on Facebook. A van carries out a parallel park, and Ms Green ties her dog to an advertising flag outside a shop to do some shopping - not much is happening at all.
But suddenly, 40 seconds in, the video takes a dramatic turn. The dog a nine-year-old basset hound called Lily, manages to dislodge the Coca Cola flag and makes a run for it.
Ms Green sprinted after her, but Lily sped up too and dashed out into the middle of the road in front of moving traffic.
