Hilarious video shows a dog pestering a giant STATUE to throw its ball!

This hilarious video shows a dog pestering a giant STATUE to throw its ball - after mistaking the artwork for its owner.

The cute clip shows rescue dog Ozzy wagging its tail and jumping around in anticipation of 'Big Fella' joining in with his game.

The six-year-old spaniel repeatedly barks at the 12-foot installation expecting a throw - but ends up disappointed.

The artwork is located in Silloth, Cumbria and was erected as request of a dying businessman who loved the scenic spot.

Ironically, it also depicts a pet dog - and a ball.

Owner Lorraine Courty, 60, said: "Ozzy always does that with benches.

My sister taught him to do it.

"But he had never done it with the massive bench next to Big Fella before, and he hasn't done it since.

"The statue is enormous in real life.

We were there a week after and he didn't even look at it.

It was just one of those things.

"But that day I eventually took the ball away and he just took it back!

"Everyone has been going crazy about [the video].

Even the sculptor has seen it - he think it's fantastic." The work of art was commissioned by businessman Peter Richardson and arranged to be positioned overlooking the sea close to where he lived in the event of his death.

Mr Richardson, who died in 2017 at the age 72, bequeathed the sculpture in his will as a gift to his hometown and the area where he would walk his own beloved dog.

Steel artist Ray Lonsdale took four months to assemble the sculpture, which was then unveiled on August 1, 2019.

The video was shot on December 22, 2019.
