Sometimes what we want is just out of reach, but it’s so close that we can almost taste it. People from all around the world are sharing when either they or their pets were surprised by the unexpected. From dropping an oven-ready pie to witnessing our pets trying to sneak off with our food, some things just don’t go at planned.
