It’s no secret that when dogs find a toy that they love, it can be pretty tricky to get it off of them.
Unfortunately for one dog walker, the pooch they were taking care of took a liking to a rather embarrassing item.
Klara Robson was out walking a Labrador named Charlie and thought he was playing with a stick.
He looked like he was having a great time so she decided to snap a photo to send to his owner.
But upon closer inspection, she soon realised that the one-year-old pup had actually found a sex toy and was carrying it around in his mouth.
As if that weren’t enough, the 33-year-old then spent the next 15 minutes chasing Charlie around attempting to retrieve the toy.
She joked that it was especially hard to catch as it “bounced everywhere”.
Klara desperately tried to get rid of the unwanted item, but before she could kick it out of reach, another dog decided to join in on the fun.
Eventually, she managed the distract Charlie enough to hide the sex toy in a ditch.
Klara later shared the photo of Charlie and his unusual find on social media where it garnered a lot of attention, with more than 2,000 likes.
She said: “He ran down a hill and at the time I didn’t realise but he came back up with it in his mouth.
“From a distance it just looked like a stick and the owner had just messaged me to see how he was so I sent that picture – then two minutes later realised what it was.
“Straight away I was like ‘oh my god, Charlie, put that down, please put that down’ – which made him want to play with it even more.”
She added: “He just thought it was a toy – another dog was trying to take it off him and every time he dropped it I tried to kick it away and he’d just chase after it. It was bouncing everywhere – eventually I managed to distract him enough to get him away from it.
“Charlie is such a character and has a lot of energy – the fact that he found it made it even funnier because it’s just something he would do, it’s Charlie all over.”
