A photo of a sleeping canine has gone viral over the last few days, leaving the internet baffled whether or not it was a 'giant dog sleeping in a pool.'

The canine's owner, who goes by the username Feeling-View-2394, says the dog is a normal-sized Akita napping in a canoe, with the angle of the image giving a false impression that the puppy is super-sized.

They also added they had not realized they had created an optical illusion, 'Because I took the picture, I never realized how confusing it could be. Interesting.' So far, the Reddit post, which was posted on Friday, has garnered above 14,200 upvotes and 50 comments.

Other Reddit users appreciated the picture itself.Stinkoo946 commented, 'This photo is very therapeutic to look at,' with Spoonbills adding: 'The color complements in this photo are *kisses fingertips*.'
