Nothing else can brighten your day more than seeing a cute dog accompanying their owner on a public outing.

Which is exactly what happened to one mum, who thought she had spotted a dachshund curled up under a seat at a restaurant.

With a glass of sauvignon blanc in hand, Jenny couldn't help making googly eyes at the cute little sausage dog she had spotted.

Hannah Murphy, her daughter, shared the photo of the 'pooch' on Twitter, which received more than 40,000 retweets and around 130,000 likes:

"At one point Hannah actually got up and paced back and forth trying to follow my finger and then I started to doubt my perception and got closer to see it was the lady’s bag," Jenny told Buzzfeed.
