Dog Who Found Lasagna In This Bush One Time Still Checks For More Years Later
"I think his optimism is a beautiful thing.”
Devo the dog has good reason to like this one bush in particular. Sure, it might look like any other bush, but sometimes this one provides free pasta to pups passing by.
Well — actually, it happened just once. But Devo is still checking for more, years later, just in case.
This tweet from Devo's owner, WilcoFour, does raise some obvious questions: Namely, how did lasagna end up in a cemetery bush in the first place? But despite having never found more, Devo keeps looking.
“He knows it’s there somewhere. He knows he is right and I’m wrong when I drag him away. That’s why he will be back there again next time. To eventually prove himself right,” WilcoFour told The Dodo. “I think his optimism is a beautiful thing!”
But Devo isn't the only hopeful pup. While dogs often conveniently forget certain commands, or how to go about those less pleasant daily routines, they can be persistent to a fault when they think they might gain something tasty. (Apparently, the word "dogged" came about for a reason).
And now Twitter users are sharing their own stories of pups who refuse to give up believing that a random good thing can happen twice in the same spot.
Our beagle (RIP) missed a snausage catch and it bounced off his snoot and went under the fridge. When I swept it out, a second, petrified snausage came with it. He sat in front of the magical snausage replicator fridge, waiting, for weeks...— Patrick Hurley (@poguemahon) January 11, 2018
12 years ago a piece of lamb fell off the BBQ onto my dog's nose. She's been underfoot every time the BBQ is on ever since (and it's not even the same BBQ)— Neroli Roocke (@NeroliRoocke) January 10, 2018
Amid these charming tidbits about dogs dreaming of a sequel to that one delicious incident of yore, at least one person was brave enough to admit they do it too.
There was a table at work that years ago had some free cake on it. I still do the same thing.— asuter (@asuter) January 10, 2018
Now, if you'll excuse us, it's time to check the fridge again.
