A curious dog ended up with her biggest smile ever after getting hold of discarded dentures.
Lucas Alves Magalhães, 32, a deputy headteacher at an agricultural college was in stitches with laughter when he saw his pooch, Pandora walk in from the garden with false teeth.
The hilarious photos of Pandora sporting the biggest grin as she wears human dentures perfectly over her natural set of nashers are made all the funnier by the fact that she is oblivious to it all.
Lucas said: “I laughed a lot and I think she was confused and not understanding why I was laughing so much. I took a photograph and quickly removed it from her mouth.
“We always take Pandora for routine appointments which show her teething is perfect and definitely doesn’t need dentures however much she wants them.”
Lucas from Monte Aprazível, Brazil who is also a psychologist had already removed from Pandora part of the dentures which were left behind in the garden by the previous residents.
The former street dog loved the replacement teeth so much that after Lucas binned them the first time she found them, she had a second scavenge and strolled into the house all smiles.
“It was a Tuesday and my wife found her with a denture in her mouth, when I got close to her the teeth were split, I picked it up and threw it in the trash.
“Two days later she dug up the other part of them. And the way it was in her mouth the smile was perfect, I burst into laughter.
“That’s when I decided to take the photo and after about a minute or two I took them out. I had told all my colleagues about the case in my service and no one believed it.”
