Dad Wakes from Nap To Find Dog Under Living Room Table Wearing His Dentures


Remember the time your dog found your dentures and decided to try them on?

The amusing scenario actually happened to a Long Island, New York, family who lives with a seemingly-innocent, cute shih tzu chihuahua mix named Maggie.

For a small dog, Maggie seems to have a larger-than-life personality, which includes a mouth large enough to wear an adult human’s dentures.

Maggie’s owner, Eunice, detailed the hilarious story to The Dodo, explaining exactly how her dog ended up parading a set of fake teeth around the house.

According to Eunice, Maggie has just the right personality to pull of such a funny stunt.

“She is the cutest! She has quite a personality,” Eunice told The Dodo. “She loves to cuddle but is also a yapper at times. She’s very mischievous!”

Eunice also lives with her dad, who, as you probably guessed, wears dentures. On this particular day, Eunice said that her father’s dentures were bothering him.

Can you tell when your pet has been mischievous?

“My dad decided to take an afternoon nap and rather than put his dentures in the bathroom, he left them on a napkin on the end of the couch,” Eunice told Buzzfeed. “While he was sleeping, Maggie must have jumped up and grabbed them.”

To her father’s surprise, the dentures were not where he had left them when he woke up. Puzzled, he began searching.

“He thought maybe he had left them in the bathroom,” Eunice told The Dodo. “When they weren’t there, he went searching downstairs and found Maggie under my living room table.”

Eunice was at work when she received a picture from her dad that left her in stitches.

“He sent me a picture and explained what had happened and I was in literal tears,” Eunice said.

There was Maggie, grinning with a goofy-looking, unforgettable, denture-filled smile.

Grandpa was sure to take a few photos before taking those dentures back for himself — presumably giving them a solid wash and rinse before popping them back into his jaw.

Eunice told Buzzfeed that Maggie did not damage the dentures, but even if she had, it would not have been a big deal. Her dad was planning to get a new set of dentures soon, anyway.
