A woman’s boyfriend has made the ultimate Christmas faux pas after accidentally sending her pet dog flying when he got a little too carried away telling a story.
TikTok user Olly O’Hare shared a video of the mistimed moment on Boxing Day when family dog Arlo jumped on the couch as his sister’s boyfriend was enthusiastically talking about going to the Ashes cricket test.
The poor pooch collects an accidental fist and goes somersaulting backwards through the air.
But Mr O’Hare quickly said he ‘can confirm’ Arlo was not hurt and shared a second video of the dog playing in the yard.

‘Still not very good at tricks but he’s a happy and healthy boy despite the tumble,’ he wrote.
Viewers of the clip said they were relieved the black and white Jack Russell terrier was fine.
‘I should not be giggling at this, but once I knew he was fine I burst out laughing,’ one person said.
‘That dog was the first one to make it into 2022,’ another person said.
‘I fully know that was an accident, but if that was my dog I could never look at him the same again,’ a third added.
It’s not known if the boyfriend is currently in the doghouse but it’s fairly certain he’d want to have given out some very good Christmas presents this year.
