MilyBeaston was confident that she knew her 180-pound pup inside out, by the time she was three years old.
But Floyd had one more surprise in store for his mom.
It was last year that Beaston’s boyfriend took a picture of Floyd while out on the park, and shared it on Facebook. Surprisingly, the photo garnered a lot of attention.
The reason was that the placement of Floyd’s markings and the position of the ear looked strangely like a reflection of the dog’s own face.
“We only first noticed Floyd’s ‘ear face’ after my boyfriend Corey used the uncropped version of that picture…as his profile picture on Facebook,” Beaston said.
“One of his friends commented on the ear and then other people noticed it too.”
Friends couldn’t stop gushing about the accidental optical illusion.
“Once people noticed it on Facebook, a few (Including Corey) were genuinely surprised and couldn’t ‘unsee’ the dog face on Floyd’s ear,” Beaston said. “Between people who couldn’t see the ear face at all to others who seemed genuinely freaked out by it, the responses were all quite entertaining!”
When Beaston posted the photo on Reddit, things couldn’t get better. “That’s just eerie,” one Redditor wrote on the post. “Dog has a doppelganger,” commented another.
Isn’t it weird though that it Beaston had no idea about her dog’s special markings? That’s because conditions have to be perfect for the pup’s mirror image to appear on the left side of his face.
“His ear has to be at just the right angle and position to clearly see the fold that makes up the ‘eye,” Beaston said. “For that reason, it’s not easy to see in person because of movement. That one photo just really captured it perfectly.”
Floyd may be a tiny celebrity now, but he’s still a sucker for snuggling and spending quality time with his mom. “Floyd is an absolute sweetheart,” Beaston said. “He is my faithful companion, and loves our frequent trips in the car together.”
Beaston might have a deal with Floyd’s selfie ear forever- but it’s just more reasons to love him.
