Dog sitting can be a lot of fun, but depending on the dog, it can also be a stressful experience.
One woman was recently looking after her mum's beloved pooch when she found herself very worried for the creature.
Jade Murray claims she was playing with Lenny the French bulldog when she noticed something unusual on the floor.
After taking the dog out of the room to investigate further, she was horrified to discover that the item on the floor was his nose... or at least that's what she thought.
In a panic she became convinced the dog's nose had fallen right off, when really the dog had simply bitten the nose off of a cuddly toy.
Jade, who lives in Coventry, recounted the hilarious ordeal in a viral Facebook post.
She wrote: "So I’m sitting there playing with Lenny as you do..until something on the floor caught my attention.
"I had no idea what it was, so I picked him up and put him outside to assess the situation further.
"I had a closer look only to discover what was his nose that had fallen off and was just lying there on the floor. His actual nose was on the f***ing floor."
She continued: "I started freaking out thinking he’s never going to sniff piss again on his walks and I know he loves doing that, I was thinking he must be in pain, I was also thinking how on earth am I going to tell my mum that whilst in my care - the dogs nose has managed to fall off.
"Anyway, I eventually plucked up the courage to pick it up because I thought nah surely not, this cannot be..only to then realise he’s bitten the nose off one of his soft toys and his nose still remains."
She concluded the post by reassuring everyone that Lenny's nose is "in full working order and completely attached to his face".
"Thank f*** for that. Need a beer or 10 after that moment of panic," she added.
More than 144,000 people liked her post with over 68,000 people sharing it.
One person commented: "Omg I would’ve flipped all the way out!"
Another replied: "I was in shock for a second".
A third said the story had totally made their day.
