Grandma Couldn’t Find Her Missing Dentures Until Her Rescue Dog Smiled

Luna is a little dog that has plenty to smile about. After all, she was rescued from the streets a few months ago and adopted into her loving forever home. She now lives with Anna Carolina Lima and her fiancé in Brazil.

It was on a recent trip to her grandmother’s house, however, when Luna found a new reason to smile.

Luna settled in quickly and began enjoying her stay at grandmas. Before long, Lima was comfortable enough to walk out of the house for a moment without the dog with her. The grandmother also decided she would lay down for a nap at that time.

“As usual, she put her dentures under the pillow so as not to lose them,” Anna told The Dodo.

Luna was obviously watching what was going on and decided to grab the opportunity.

When the grandmother woke up, her false teeth were missing.

“She was pretty desperate that she couldn’t find her dentures,” Lima said. “She and my mom searched everywhere. They searched for hours.”

When Lima came back to the house and learned that the dentures were missing, she became suspicious of her dog. After all, he had been keeping out of sight. It seems as if he had a good reason:

“I found Luna sitting in the armchair with Grandma’s teeth in her mouth,” Lima said. “She didn’t want to give them back!”

The dog was totally busted but she wasn’t exactly feeling guilty.

I would even venture to say that she found it to be somewhat laughable!

It took a little work but Lima was able to get the dentures back and they had not been damaged.

Now the dog was back to her old smile again.

The entire ordeal was so cute that nobody could get mad at Luna. In fact, they had a good laugh over it.

“We all laughed a lot!” Lima said. “We all love animals.”
