Last summer, Beaston’s boyfriend snapped a photo of Floyd on an outing to the park, and shared the shot on his Facebook page. The photo started to get a lot of attention from his friends — but not for any reasons that the couple anticipated.
The placement of Floyd’s markings and the position of the ear looked strangely like a reflection of the dog’s own face.
“We only first noticed Floyd's ‘ear face’ after my boyfriend Corey used the uncropped version of that picture … as his profile picture on Facebook,” Beaston told The Dodo. “One of his friends commented on the ear and then other people noticed it too.”
