Whether it’s swallowing a tennis ball, munching on pebbles until your stomach “rattles,” or actually eating your homework, dogs aren’t known for having discerning tastes (well, except for one posh dog who only eats his meal with parmesan cheese). .
However, one dog’s snack time led to a trip to the vet after the hungry dog stuck its jaws in the bone it was nibbling on.
Tiktoker tangojuliet14 posted a video of her dog Finn in the car as they prepared to head to the vet clinic. In the short clip, the husky mix can be seen hilariously showing off his new accessory.
She said, “Are we going to see Dad? Has someone taped a bone to their jaw?
“Glad dad is an emergency vet.”
TikTok users couldn’t get enough of the puppy’s adorable failure as the post garnered 7.2 million likes and over 19,000 comments since it was first published on March 30.
K’s dad said, “Poor boy.” OllieWinning commented, “No thought behind those eyes.”

Luckily, tangojuliet14’s partner is an emergency vet who was able to remove the bone quickly and easily.
In the comments, the Tiktoker explained how Finn got into this situation.
She wrote: “1. Idiot mom (me) bought the bone.
“2. Dad checks all the toys/treats he’s buying now.
“3. You could just pull it off, no saw, I’m just a wimp.
“He banged his bone against the ground in the yard (that’s dirt that comes out at the end) and shoved it up his jaw.
“It was filled with peanut butter, the holes aren’t usually THAT big.
According to PetPlan Insurance, the average cost of an urgent trip to the vet in the US can range from $800 to $1,500 for a cat or dog.
However, the actual amount of an emergency appointment depends on factors such as time of day, severity, location, and the veterinary clinic itself.
The most common emergencies include vomiting and diarrhea, a car accident and poisoning, with only 39 percent of Americans having enough savings to pay for emergency travel should it happen.
In a follow-up video, Finn can be seen sweetly bowing his head and feigning innocence while his mother jokingly “scolds” him for the trip.
She said: “Shall we sit in traffic for 40 minutes on the way home?
“Was it worth it? It was worth it.”
Many commenters suggested the bone was actually a trick so Finn could see his father at work.
Emmabrown9355 said, “Awww bless him! Dad to the rescue.” Lee commented, “Maybe he was tired of Dad leaving him so take action into your own hands.”
While Courtney “Nini” Kreis joked, “He was like either way I see daddy ma’am!”
Others warned the poster to avoid bones like this in the future, as it’s surprisingly common for dogs to get their jaws stuck.
PixelThomas said: “My dog had the same thing. Pure panic.”
Astrid commented: “This happened to my old dog too. We took her to the vet and when they saw her everyone started laughing, it was pretty funny.”
