A Dad Woke To Find His Dentures Had Disappeared. Then He Saw The Dog And Doubled Over In Laughter

Eunice’s dad was looking after her pet pooch, Maggie, when he took his dentures out to have a nap. When he awoke, his teeth were gone. But then he caught the thief in action.

Eunice had left her dad on dog-sitting duties one day when he decided to take a nap. However, when he awoke from his slumber, he realized his dentures were missing. But after searching the house, he found a guilty-looking suspect hiding under a table.

Maggie, an adorable Chihuahua-Shih Tzu mix, lives in Long Island, New York, with her owner Eunice and her dad. The dog was very much part of the family, and her playful personality could always put a smile on her humans’ faces.

Describing Maggie’s unique character, in September 2018 Eunice told The Dodo website, “She is the cutest and she has quite a personality.” The gushing owner added, “She loves to cuddle but is also a yapper at times. She’s very mischievous!”

Since Eunice works, her dad looks after Maggie during the day. So, it’s up to him to keep the little dog’s naughtiness in check. But judging by one hilarious incident that occurred in 2018, monitoring the pup’s behavior appears to be easier said than done.

On that particular day, Eunice’s father took a break from his dog-sitting duties. “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 explained to BuzzFeed in September 2018.

But when her dad awoke sometime later, his dentures had mysteriously vanished. “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.”

When Eunice’s dad took a closer look at the dog, he found her smiling right back at him – literally. That’s because Maggie had stolen his dentures and was carrying them around with her in her mouth, giving her what looked like a massive grin.

From the images taken of the entertaining incident, Maggie appeared to be rather pleased with herself. So, she hung onto the teeth proudly before Eunice’s dad emerged and, again literally, wiped the smile off the dog’s face.

Given Maggie’s mischievous nature, perhaps Eunice’s dad should have known better than to leave his teeth in reach of the dog. “While he was sleeping, Maggie must have jumped up and grabbed them,” Eunice later concluded to BuzzFeed.

Luckily though, the father could see the funny side of his pilfered teeth. So, he snapped a few pictures of Maggie’s picture-perfect smile and sent them to Eunice before reclaiming the dentures. And when she received the photos, she found them hilarious.

Despite being at work at the time, Eunice fell into a fit of hysterics. She told Buzzfeed, “I was in tears laughing and showing all of my coworkers. At the time, I wasn’t very active on Twitter and never even thought to tweet it until recently.”

So, when Eunice discovered a new-found appreciation of Twitter, she decided that the social media site was the perfect platform on which to share news of Maggie’s antics. And needless to say, the images of the dog sporting human teeth soon went viral.

Alongside the amusing pictures, Eunice wrote, “A few months ago my dog, Maggie, stole my dad’s dentures while he was napping. His gums had been hurting him, so he took them out mid-afternoon… and he found her like this.”

Perhaps unsurprisingly, it didn’t take long for Eunice’s tweet to take off. Soon enough, the photos of Maggie had been shared upwards of 51,000 times. Consequently, the dog became a bit of an internet celebrity. And some fans even demanded Eunice revealed what the pooch looked like without the dentures.

So, to indulge her dog’s new following, Eunice did indeed share a more natural snap of Maggie. In it, the cute pooch rolls around in some grass while dressed in a fetching pink sweater. Alongside the image, Eunice joked, “Maggie the model, with all of her regular teeth.”

Another user confirmed that Maggie wasn’t the only dog to have bagged herself a new pair of human gnashers. “My dog did that with my sister’s dentures project!” user @galaxyftnarry revealed in response to Eunice’s tweet.

Elsewhere, some Twitter users were concerned with whether or not Eunice’s dad could still use his dentures after Maggie got hold of them. “Does it mean he has to get a new set now?” one inquisitive person asked.

Later, Eunice confirmed that her dad’s dentures were undamaged by Maggie’s mischievous episode. However, she revealed that he had already made moves to replace the ones that she wore. Therefore, he had some new teeth on the way.

So, as the saying goes, all’s well that ends well. While Eunice’s dad got some new teeth, Maggie’s smile delighted thousands around the world, earning her countless fans in the process. With that in mind, Eunice thought it was only right that Maggie had her own social media presence.

As a result, she set up the Magstermoomoo Instagram page in honor of her pet pooch. And while the doggy’s dentures were nowhere to be seen, the images of the cute dog on there are just as captivating. And that’s probably why Maggie already boasts close to 800 followers.
