Son Notices Something Weird When His Dad Picks Dog Up From Groomer, And People Are Dying From Laughter

Absent-minded people will totally relate to this man, who somehow managed to make the most hilariously obvious mistake. After his son Alex had asked him to pick up his beloved puppy from the groomer, the man came home with the wrong dog.

The dog, named Nieves, has lived with the family for 10 years, however, Alex’s father only realized his mistake after his son pointed out that the dog’s fur looked really different that day. The dog-napper admitted to feeling that something was off, but the adventurous impostor that he took home with him seemed to be fine with it. “According to him, it was because the dog acted normal and followed him to the car and even jumped in as soon as he opened the door,” Alex told BuzzFeed. Also, the man decided not to trust his aging eyesight. “I thought I was getting old and my eyes were betraying me,” he said.

After realizing what had happened, Alex’s father immediately took the wrong dog back. The dogs were switched, and the real Nieves came back home safe and sound.

Meet Alex, a 22-year-old student from Miami

i can understand the father being oblivious enough to not recognize the dog--if it's the son's dog, maybe he didn't have a lot of interaction with it? what i CANT understand is PetSmart GIVING him the wrong dog! i'm guessing the father asked for the dog by name, or at the very least, gave his son's name to be able to pick up the dog--someone should be in serious trouble at PetSmart for this...

I have a Maltese and yes, they look alike, it is uncanny . Another funny story,once my sister was driving and saw a family members dog running free,she opened her car door and the dog jumped in,she brought her to owners,dog ran into the house,other 2 dogs started barking,only then did everyone realize it was not her dog. This was a big dog, a mutt but was a twin to my sisters dog.We tease her on how she kidnapped someone's dog (there was a man 10ft away) when she opened her car door,dog in and took off, no time for the man to say a word.All ended well,found owner,found real dog asleep under the deck who was not even missing as far as anyone knew.

Is easy done - some years ago my parents moved house and their big black cat kept returning to the old home half a mile away. Was called on to search one night as he had gone missing again.Went to the old house and called Charlie - got an answering mioww from near the dark driveway - scooped up Charlie and drove back. Only on entering the house and looking closer did i realise i had catknapped someone elses big black moggy.

When we were kids in Arizona, there was a cat up on an electric pole too scared to come down. We called everyone to help. Finally some one came and got it down for us. We were so happy to get our cat back. My sister said as we were walking away...you know that isn’t our cat. I said shut up...I know that now but they don’t. After all the fuss we made, we were happy we helped the poor cat. Even if it ended not being ours. That high up it sure looked like ours!
