Celebrity sightings are not something new. The Virgin Mary on a tree lump, Jesus on toast, Elvis on a dirty windshield, Homer Simpson in the clouds! Our eyesight works in mysterious ways, making us see familiar things where they certainly are not.
The latest sighting is President Donald Trump in an ear of a dog.
25-year-old Jade Robinson from Tyneside made the picture below while trying to take a photo of the inner ear of Chief, her two-year-old beagle. She wanted to send the photo to his vet, to confirm if the cute doggy had a cyst or not.
Once you see it, you have to agree, it does kind of look like the president.

The owner, Jade, didn’t notice the resemblance to The Donald, she was, of course, more worried about her pooch. But a friend later spotted it, and now it’s all over the internet.
The confused pet owner explains the event:
“This photo had to be taken whilst Chief was asleep as he does not like his inner ears to be touched and I swear I looked and zoomed in and out at this photo over 20 times and never saw Donald Trump – it was my eagle-eyed friend who pointed it out.”
I’m not sure who has it worse… The dog for living with Trump in his ear or his owner who has to look at it

The sighting can bring better days for Chief, after all
Jade used the accidental publicity to raise some funds for Chief’s surgery. He needs to get a procedure for which he must be sedated. That way the vet will get a better view of the cyst inside the ear.
In a statement BBC reported, she said:
“If you know anything about beagles you know how intelligent, active and curious they are and Chief certainly lives up to that – he’s full of mischief.
As he has the very distinctive long ears they spend a lot of time scraping the ground sniffing for lovely smells, unfortunately this leads to his ears picking up a lot of dirt.
We have fought to keep his ears clean since day one however general cleaning can only go so far.”
As of Tuesday, the fundraising page has managed to get 80% of the needed £430. Only a little way to go, and all help is appreciated.
Do not palpitate your dog’s ear, or Donald Trump will AWAKEN.

Admit it, what you also really want to know is what has President Trump said to the beagle. Was it something about the pending vet-care reform?
