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.

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.

Now, if you'll excuse us, it's time to check the fridge again.

It's worth noting that dogs should be prevented from eating things they find lying around on walks. If they do get their mouths on something, try to remove it promptly for their own safety.
