    A serious question: what does your dog see when it looks in the mirror? This pup seems to treat the mysterious doggie behind the glass according to the golden retriever rule: always make friends!

    Between the age of 18 and 24 months, human babies begin to understand that they are looking at themselves when they encounter a mirror. While adult dogs basically ignore mirrors, according to Psychology Today, young puppies commonly treat the image in the looking glass like another dog. This golden retriever puppy seems to have found his other half.
