No one knew how the tiny dachshund managed to sneak all the way to the top of the roof, but he sure looked happy with himself – and now people have branded him ‘Spiderman’
Visitors to a British pub were baffled when they looked up to the huge boozer’s roof and spotted a tiny sausage dog – towering above the people below.
A picture of the Three Merry Lads pub in Sheffield had the internet in stitches after people spotted the tiny dog perched proudly on its roof.
It was taken by a man who was out walking his own dog in the city in south Yorkshire, who said he could hear barking but couldn’t figure out where it was coming from, as the Daily Star reports.
Then he found the source, a tiny dachshund perched on the roof of the pub, which appears to be a great way from the ground – a daunting climb for a big dog, and a gigantic effort for the little pooch.

An anonymous poster uploaded a snap to the Casual UK forum on Reddit and it quickly went viral with 31,600 people liking the post and over 600 commenting.
Captioning the image, the poster said: “On the morning countryside dog walk when I hear barking, couldn’t figure out where it was coming from until I look up.”
And, people quickly began joking about how the cute pooch managed to get up on the roof.
One person said: “That dachshund is finally as tall as he feels.”
And another added: “I love the fact that dachshunds don’t understand that they are small – They honestly believe that they are big hunting dogs!”
A third wrote: “Sausage dogs never fail to make me laugh..”
And, a researcher theorised: “Looking at satellite imagery on Google Maps, there seems to be a large complex of extensions hidden behind the Georgian front, all with different heights.

“So there’s probably a window it can just plod out of.”
Luckily, people managed to contact the pub to find out what was going on.
The landlord of the Three Merry Lads said: “This is Chester…he is our dog.
“He’s fine…thinks he is Spiderman.
“We live in the flat above pub and he likes to escape and have a look around.
“To be fair to him we do have some amazing views so get why he enjoys it!!”
And, rest assured, little Chester is perfectly safe and well – and has given a fair few people a laugh.
The Three Merry Lads is a 200 year old pub just on the edge of the Peak District and it serves a variety of cask ales and delicious food while being warmed by its three cosy log fires.
