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.
It’s not so black and white. It’s a myth that dogs only see in black and white. In fact, it’s believed that dogs see primarily in blue, greenish-yellow, yellow and various shades of gray.
‘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.
