Bloke Bought A Fake Lion Mane For His Dog But It Did Not Turn Out Well

Bloke Bought A Fake Lion Mane For His Dog But It Did Not Turn Out Well

The thing with shopping online is that you really don't know what you're purchasing. While the photo might look really good on the model, manakin, makeshift home or wherever, it could just be good photography skills, good lighting or even a bit of photoshop.

It looks like an adorable fake lion mane that you can attach to your dog to make he or she look like the King of the Jungle. For less than a fiver, there was no question that this would be a decent purchase.

Greg Eckersley popped an order in 'for a laugh' and eagerly awaited the product.

Lo and behold, when it arrived, it wasn't exactly what was advertised.

It looked more like a toupee or wig than a lion mane and in the end the dog just looked like it was trying to cover up a bald spot.

Greg told LADbible: "I realised when I got it, it was too small but put it on him anyways and he pulled that face with them eyes. It was hilarious, and I couldn't stop laughing so I put it on Twitter. Still laughing this morning."

His tweet has been liked, shared and commented on more than 18,000 times and people have been comparing his dog to a bunch of different people.

From Rod Stewart to Tina Turner, people on social media ran an absolute mile with Greg's poor dog. Naturally, the pet owner didn't want to keep the 'lion mane' and asked to return it for a refund.

The seller came back and offered £1 and even allowed him to keep it in case he wanted to give it to a friend who had a smaller dog. They eventually settled on a quid more and Greg now has a memento to look at whenever he needs cheering up.

While it's bad, it doesn't compare to the woman who thought she was buying a water jug and two glasses from eBay for just £1.79.

Unfortunately, what Melissa Seaman had actually ordered was a set for a doll's house and the items stood just a bit higher than two centimetres.

She said: "I just saw the picture and that it read 'jug with two glasses' for £1.79 which is an absolute bargain. I clicked on it straight away and thought nothing of it. When I opened the parcel, I was really confused."

She says she's definitely learned her lesson and she'll be sure to read the fine print, or even just the normal sized print.
