Dogs are notorious for their love of digging in the dirt. From burying bones to tearing up the plants in your garden, it might just be one of their favorite pastimes.
All of that digging led to quite the shock for one dog owner in Sao Paulo, Brazil, however. Lucas Alves Magalhães had just returned home one day to find his pup, Pandora, in the backyard with something startling in her mouth.
As was often the case, she had done some excavating. But this time, instead of finding a stick or some other random object, she had something strange in her mouth that made Lucas laugh…
Everyone knows that dogs are notorious for digging holes in and around your backyard. If they’re not tearing up your garden or burying their secret bones somewhere, they’re looking for an unknown buried treasure at the worst time!
One man named Lucas Alves Magalhães certainly knew that all too well. It wasn’t unusual for Lucas to discover his dog, Pandora, digging up something strange in the backyard of their Sao Paulo, Brazil, home.
When he returned home after a long day at the office, however, he knew something was amiss. His dog had clearly gotten into something, and it became all the more apparent the moment Lucas’s goofy pup opened her mouth…
You see, when Pandora went digging holes around Lucas’s backyard, she found herself some brand new chompers! Notice anything unusual about her mouth in the image here? Give it a quick once-over…
Although Lucas was admittedly taken aback by his beloved dog’s recent discovery, he still found it hilarious. “I couldn’t see what it was, so I called her in,” Lucas explained in an interview. “When I lifted her head, I almost died from laughing.”
During her usual dig-related activities, Pandora had seemingly stumbled upon a pair of dentures. Lucas assumed they had likely belonged to one of the members of the elderly couple who’d lived in the house before Lucas and Pandora.
Lucas explained their origin story: “An elderly couple owned this house before me, and I think maybe it was theirs,” he recalled. “They may have changed their dentures and buried this one in the backyard. There’s no other explanation, because I know it’s not ours.”
Lucas was fully aware of how gross Pandora’s discovery was. Don’t worry, he removed the dentures from her mouth almost immediately… but not before snapping a couple of photographs so he could recall the hilarious event whenever he needed a good laugh!
Still, Pandora did not seem pleased that her find was taken away from her! Just look at the pure disdain on her face after having lost her dentures. Sure, it might’ve been pretty gross to Lucas and his wife, but to Pandora, it was the discovery of a lifetime.
Best of all, two days later, Pandora made another similar discovery in the yard. “Two days later she dug up the other part of them. And the way they were sat in her mouth made the smile perfect,” Lucas joked. “I burst into laughter.”
Oh man, that is so gross. Pandora needs to understand that you don’t go digging up dentures! Which also raises the question of why those dentures were buried in the backyard in the first place…
