A Golden Retriever from Brighton, UK is unsure how he’ll get to the Quidditch World Cup after discovering that a “manky old boot” he found on a nearby hill was in fact not a Portkey.

“I keep trying to tell him that Harry Potter was a book and there’s no such thing as a Portkey,” said Oswald Lubberstuck, a close friend of the dog. “But he just keeps searching on the Internet to see if he can locate an entrance to the ‘Floo Network’ or find a stopping point for the ‘Knight Bus’ nearby.”

Sources tell The Fluffington Post that the dog does not know how to Apparate.
