Lana the corgi just wanted a friend to play with.

Bored with the usual 9-to-5 grind, the dog logged on to Craigslist to find out about local playdate opportunities in her area.

“She found another corgi that was willing to meet up,” says Jen Dwyer, a friend. “There weren’t any pictures attached to the posting, though. Guess that should have been a red flag.”

Indeed, the playmate that greeted Lana last week was not a corgi at all. At least, not technically.

“It was a stuffed corgi,” says Dwyer. “It took a few minutes for Lana to realize, but once she did, she was really disappointed. I’ll tell you, the Internet can be a weird place sometimes.”
