Gracie the Golden Retriever was having a wonderful day, until disaster struck. The seven-year-old pooch had her favorite chew toy, named Cookie, cruelly snatched from her grasp and placed into a terrifying spinning machine. Cookie, who has been Gracie’s BFF for around five years now, went whirring around in this evil machine, and her owner had the audacity to photograph the pup’s shock and horror. In all seriousness, Gracie’s owner Jessica Bernhardt, 48, had simply put Cookie in the wash, but ended up bursting into laughter when she spotted her dog’s stunned expression and took a quick snap.
Forlorn Gracie waited an hour for the cycle to finish before being reunited with her beloved toy, and promptly snatched her back into her safe and sound jaws.

Since mum-of-two Jessica shared the funny picture of shocked Gracie on Instagram it’s gone viral racking up more than 4,000 likes and comments. Jessica, from Hamburg, Germany, said: ‘Cookie the toy was looking a little bit dirty and in need of a wash, which is why I put it in the washing machine.

‘Gracie trotted into the kitchen and looked very surprised when she realised where her favourite toy Cookie was. As soon as I saw her expression I found it very funny, it made me laugh so much.

Make him part of the family. Pets, especially dogs, need companionship. They are traditionally pack creatures and need the warmth and love that comes with living indoors with their family.

‘Cookie usually carries it everywhere with her – she’s had it for five years – so obviously missed her while she had a wash.’

All’s well that ends well, but it ends even better when there’s a cute dog photo to go with it.
