People Can't Stop Laughing Over This Mom Who Apparently Had No Idea What Her Dog Looks Like

"I kind of just made that face Jim from The Office makes when Michael Scott does something dumb."

Posted on June 29, 2017, at 6:24 p.m. ET

This is 17-year-old Jeff Squires and his mom Terri Squires, who live in Grafton, Ohio.


The family has a Jack Russell terrier named Duey (the odd spelling due to a spelling error on his vet papers, Jeff told BuzzFeed News).

"Our dog tends to run away this time of year, especially around the 4th of July, with people blowing up fireworks all the time," Jeff said. "He gets scared and runs around."

On Tuesday, Terri saw a Facebook post saying two dogs had been found wandering around town. She texted her son a picture of one of them and asked him to check that it wasn't Duey.


It was...


...not Duey.


Jeff said he was pretty baffled because "it looked nothing like Duey" and was "pretty much a polar bear."

"I kind of just made that face Jim from The Office makes when Michael Scott does something dumb," he said.

Terri told BuzzFeed News she was coming out of a meeting when she saw the picture on Facebook and "didn't pay much attention to it, obviously" before sending to her son.

"I just saw white, and thought it kind of looked like a Jack Russell," she said.

Jeff posted the ridiculous text exchange on Twitter and people could not handle it.

Yesterday I learned that my mom has no idea what our dog looks like

They just look so absurdly different.


I AM WEAK, duey is like a quarter the size too 😂

@cduffner5 @jeff_jssj @MadiBriggs I see no difference

She didn't even spell his name right!

I like how his mom spells the name wrong too

Real cold, Mom. ❄️ ❄️ ❄️

Even your dog's face says "mom wtf"

But others could relate, saying their moms have made similar mistakes before...

lol one time my mom brought home the wrong dog from the vet because she thought it was ours

My mom doesn't know my cats names. It's either "the gray one" or "the white one" or "the one outside". varying degrees of "yikes."

One time my mom almost let a raccoon into our house instead of our tabby cat, so yah, I can relate.

my mom once picked the wrong baby from kindergarten 🙄 thought it was her grandson

This story has a happy ending, though: The two missing dogs found their way home due to Jeff's tweet!


"Within all those messages, one of Jeffrey’s friends said, 'Hey, those are my grandma's dogs!'" said Terri. "Grandma has them back now."

So, in the end, Terri having no idea what her own dog looks like led to the two missing dogs being found.

All together now:

We don't deserve moms.
