Funny Story: A Case Of Mistaken Identity- Dog Snafu
May 10, 2018 9:10am CST
Pet owners develop a real bond with "man's best friend." Then how could this pet owner possibly make this mistake? Last week, a Miami dad stopped off at the local Pet Smart to pick up the family dog, a nearly 10-year-old toy Maltese, Nieves, following a grooming appointment. Everything was going well. Until the man's son noticed something different about Nieves. It was the wrong dog! Apparently their were two white dogs of the same breed waiting for their owners to pick them up and Dad grabbed the wrong one. Of course, being the age of social media the son tweeted the incident and it went viral. 58,000 re-tweeters got a big laugh over Dad's snafu. Would you mistake your pet for another?

@dgobucks226 Sometimes a member of the family just isn't into the pet like the rest of the family. I know my father agreed to get us kids a dog, but he didn't bond with it like us kids and my Mom, so I guess he would have done the same thing whether he was in a hurry or not. His attitude would have been "It's just a dog, it looks about right!".

Oh gosh, you would have thought dad would recognize the collar at least! Some pets do look very similar, but I think it would be hard to mistake your pet for another. Where I used to live, there was a cat that was almost a twin of the one I had..there was only one marking that was different on my kitty.

I saw the tweet when it was just going viral. I feel like it is very common especially with dogs like that breed because they do kind of look very similar haha I don't think I would, but some people just have so much going on in their brains or like men...nothing (just kidding!) that they make mistakes
