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.
Once your dog has removed all of the fabric from the ball, you can stuff the scraps right back in!
‘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.
