A cute golden retriever refused to surrender a pink dildo after finding it while out on a walk, much to the embarrassment of his owner.
Lucas, a nine-year-old golden retriever, was out for a walk with his owner Julie Maher, 52, in Leeds when he disappeared into bushes, which is usual, and then returned with a sex toy, which is not.
The dog was so pleased with his new find, that he refused to drop it and Julie was left with no option other than to let him bring it home.
Julie said: "Lucas and I were on our daily walk in the fields close to where we live and more often than not, he usually ends up with his head in some bushes and ends up bringing something out.
"He usually finds a tennis ball or something - we've got a massive collection of various types of balls collected by Lucas when we've been out walking!
"But on this particular day, I was chatting on my mobile when I noticed that Lucas was carrying an object in his mouth.
"Concerned with what it was, I caught up with him to see and obviously when I realised his hilarious discovery I began laughing uncontrollably.
"I tried to get the vibrator out of his mouth, but he wasn't having any of it, so we just carried on walking.
"Luckily, after a few minutes, he dropped it, so I kicked it onto some bushes, and we continued with our walk."
But reluctant to let such a prime photo opportunity pass, Julie then decided to see if she could find the dildo again to get a snap of Lucas with his newly found toy, which she did.
Unfortunately for Julie, Lucas wasn't letting his new prized-possession go that easily.
"On our way back from the walk, I decided to find the vibrator and see if I could get a photo with Lucas holding it in his mouth so I could show it to people," Julie said.
"So, I did just that. I then told Lucas to drop it because I obviously didn't want to walk back home with him carrying it in his mouth but of course, Lucas being Lucas, he had other ideas and decided that he wanted to take it home with him.
"After wrestling with him for what seemed like ages, I decided that I would try to get home as quickly as possible in the hope no one would see what he had!
"Fortunately, we don't live that far from where we were - I've never walked so fast in my life!"
Lucas returned home but later went on to chew the sex toy to pieces.
