This gardener got a surprise when she found the appearance of her pet just among the potatoes.
Joanne Gudger, 47, from Atherstone, England, was harvesting potatoes from her share of a shared garden when she discovered a spud that looked like her American bulldog, Dave.
“As soon as I pulled it out of the ground, I immediately knew it looked like Dave,” she told The Sun.
She immediately took a picture and later published it on several Facebook groups for assignment – or community – gardens, according to the outlet.

“Everyone was joking in the comments and said they will be careful to dig up the potatoes in the future if they dig up a puppy,”

Gudger, who has three children, said Dave has recently suffered from Cushing’s disease, so his similar potatoes have encouraged her family and even led to the 13-year-old pet being given a new nickname.

“He’s getting older now and getting a little gray so he probably looks more like the potato,” she said.
“It was absolutely perfect how the potatoes had Dave’s jaws and everything,” she continued. “We now call him ‘potato head Dave’.”

Gudger’s discovery has also lifted her co – workers’ mood, she said. She works as a business manager at a healthcare company and the coronavirus pandemic has hit her and her colleagues hard, according to The Sun.
“It has obviously been a very trying time but this has made us all very happy,” she said.
The woman and her family decided to display the potatoes instead of eating them – but eventually I unfortunately have to get rid of the spud, said Gudger.
“We did not want to eat the potatoes because it would be difficult to eat such a masterpiece,” she explained. “Unfortunately, it eventually rotted away and was composted because it no longer resembled the dog.”

But even if the potatoes are gone, Gudger is still tickled by his discovery.
“I keep laughing at it because I will probably never grow a potato that looks like my own dog again,” she said.
