Gracie, a dog from the Stockton area of California, was near a dog shelter when she got her head stuck in a treat bucket for two weeks.

Tara Morrison, who is in charge of the shelter, spotted the bucket on Gracie’s head around the sixth day, but was unable to lure the dog to her in order to extract the admittedly uncomfortable hat.
