Mum discovers potato which is a ‘spitting image’ of her dog Dave

A mum was blown away after discovering a potato that looked exactly like her dog.

Joanne Gudger, 47, came across the spud during a dig at her allotment in Atherstone, Warwickshire.

She snared a snap of it alongside her 13-year-old American bulldog, called Dave.

Joanne sent the pic to her partner Mark, who commented: “It's the spitting image of him.”

She said: “We now call him 'potato head Dave'. We didn't want to eat the potato because it'd be hard to eat a masterpiece like that."

The operations manager added: “I still keep laughing about it because I'll probably never grow a potato that looks like my own dog again.

“As soon as I pulled it out of the soil I knew straight away that it looked like Dave and I took a picture to send to my other half, Mark – even he said it's the spitting image of him.

“Dave is really poorly at the moment with Cushing's disease which is incurable so this really cheered us up.

“He's getting older now and is going a bit grey so he probably looks more like the potato than ever!

“It was just perfect how the potato had Dave's jowls and everything.”

Joanne shared the picture in various allotment groups, where it got hundreds of likes.

She added: “Everyone was joking in the comments and saying that they're going to be careful digging their potatoes up in the future in case they dig up a puppy.

“It has also been a breath of fresh air due to my job working for a care company and dealing with Covid – my colleagues all think it's hilarious!

“Our carers visit our vulnerable customers in their own homes providing crucial support. It's obviously been a very trying time but this has cheered us all up massively.”
