Southern star Samantha Akkineni says she has "failed as a mom" to her puppy Hash in a hilarious new social media post.

Samantha took to Instagram Stories, where she is seen asking her French bulldog: "Whose toy is this Hash? Whose toy is this? Is this your toy? Or is this the neighbours toy? This is not your toy!"
