Hocus Focus: Harry Potter Magic, Used to Train Puppy, Puts Twitter Under Its Spell

Ann Brisbin revealed that her particular fantastic beast is named Remus (presumably after the Harry Potter character, Remus Lupin, and not one of the two founders of Rome), and that he also has his own Instagram page.

Dogs are awesome, a fact we can all agree on. Also, Harry Potter is awesome (recent cinematic missteps aside), another fact we can all agree on. So when you combine those two things into one video, you get your content going truly viral.

Recently, a Twitter user with the handle of @BrizzyVoices, posted a video of her puppy, whom she had trained to respond to spells featured in JK Rowling's iconic series. Forget playing dead, this pup responds to Avada Kedavra (the dreaded Killing Curse from the books), which immediately causes him to strike a stricken pose, reminiscent of victims of the same from books. Meanwhile, Descendo causes the dog to descend from the bed, while Ascendio causes him to leap back on. Perhaps, most amusingly, when the pup hears Augmenti (a spell that conjures up a stream of water), he goes and does his business.

In case you needed further details, the dog's owner, Ann Brisbin, revealed that her particular fantastic beast is named Remus (presumably after the Harry Potter character, Remus Lupin, and not one of the two founders of Rome), and that he also has his own Instagram page.

As expected, the posts garnered all the love that Twitter could give, having been viewed over 3.75 million times and getting 2,45,000 'loves' at the time of this writing, despite having been on the microblogging site for less than 48 hours.

Among the many, many, many replies were plenty of allusions to the Harry Potter canon.
