Rodents are probably not the first thing you'd expect to see used as a dog's toy. But in this adorable YouTube video, a lemon beagle named Maymo is completely taken by this toy mouse.
Frantically, he chases it and then morphs his body into breakdance-like moves sure to bring a smile to anyone's face. Alas, his tantric moves cease when the mechanical critter runs out of batteries.
The footage is almost as adorable as the puppy who couldn't keep his legs down while eating or the baby elephant who didn't get his trunk.
