A woman woke up to a giant dog lying beside her in bed after a boozy night out.
Mia Flynn, 28, rolled over on Monday morning 'petrified' at the sight of a 'wolf' which was 'staring' down at her, with no idea where it had come from.
Her memory still hazy from a few bottles of wine enjoyed the night before at a pal's house, Mia reached for her camera to film the large husky-type dog she feared would attack her.
Hilarious footage shows Mia whispering to the camera "I'm too scared to move in my own bed" as she films herself and then pans over to reveal the huge hairy hound relaxing next to her – unmoved by her confusion.
The learning support worker soon pieced together her steps from the previous evening and found footage on her phone of her discovering what she branded a "wolf" following her home in the dark, as she audibly slurs her words from the drink.
Later clips show the husky wandering around Mia's kitchen as she says bewildered: "Of all the things I've come home with on a night out. What the f*** is that? He followed me home."
Mia, from Rhyl, Wales, said: "I went to my friend's help to her do a bit of DIY and painting…then we decided that three bottles of wine was a good idea.
"I was a little shocked when I woke up hungover, to a dog staring at me.

"I was petrified he was going to attack me – I find dogs cute but they're also a bit scary. Especially a bloody big one like that."
Despite being drunk, Mia had had the foresight to record her encounter with the dog, which she had named Toby, and how it had followed her home.
However she did not remember coming home with the mutt at 2.30am.
Mia said: "I documented the whole thing on my Snapchat, and that's how I pieced together the story the next morning.

"So I was walking home from her house after midnight, when the dog started following me. He was just wandering the street – [I later found out] it was the street he lived on, so I assume he'd just gotten out.
"My mum was fuming. She was in bed when I apparently came in at 2:30am and told her 'I've got a new mate.'
"She wasn't pleased, even though she was fine the next morning.
"This definitely isn't out of character for me – everyone knows I go a bit mad after a drink. But I've never brought an animal home."
One video shows the unwitting dog sitter walking home with the husky following along, as Mia says: "There's a full-on f****** wolf following me. It's too late for this, I feel like an eskimo."
Once Mia figured out what had happened by retracing her steps through her Snapchat story, she shared a snap of the dog on her Facebook.
Mia said: "I knew everyone would find it funny as I had so many messages on Snapchat when I woke up that morning.
"But I put it on Facebook to try and find the owner. The poor dog in a stranger's house probably just wanted to go home.

"A girl I have on snapchat recognised the dog and got in touch with the owner for me.
