Dogs like to be part of the fun too, but their little doggy brains don’t really understand what a photo is just yet. You might think that they’re smiling for the camera, but they’re likely just smiling at you, or they know that you like it when they let their tongues loll out while you’re pointing that strange device at them.
Hey, anything to get a treat, right? That’s what dogs are usually thinking about, in our experience. This dog didn’t want to be kept waiting, so it did whatever it could to be part of the photo. Kinda looks like it’s taking a big bite out of the guy’s arm, but it’s just trying to get some air. Maybe it doesn’t approve of the relationship for some reason.
Have to Get Their Attention Somehow
It’s not often that you see a dog with its head in such a spot, but sometimes a pug has to do what it can. Other than just hoping to be close to its owners, we couldn’t tell you why a dog would choose to introduce its head into the space between a foot and a flip-flop, but dogs can be hard to read sometimes.
Maybe it needed to use the bathroom, or maybe it wanted some of that tasty, tasty human food that the owners seem to enjoy so much. All of us, even humans, have our little eccentricities that help us to stand out. Maybe this dog put its head in there once and found it to be a certain kind of comfortable.
The Water of Life
Get enough pets in one place and make them all stand around while a person talks on stage and this is going to happen eventually. We wonder how much work the trainers for TV or movie dogs have to put in to make sure the dog doesn’t make a mess while the cameras are rolling.
Or, even more important, a dog that is part of a stage play – they can’t just restart the scene if the dog decides it has to answer the call of nature. We guess that the actors just roll with it and then clean it up during a transition, but that might be one of the reasons why you don’t see a lot of live animals on stage. That’s a role that could go to a human, too.
Thanksgiving is for the Dogs
Ah, no, wait, no it isn’t. We bet that family dogs go wild for the smell of roasting turkeys, mashed taters, cranberry sauce, and pumpkin pie, but there’s a couple of big reasons why. Some of it will be unhealthy for those dogs, while there’s also the fact that, if the dogs are given free reign, they would stuff themselves to the breaking point.
This could, all too easily, result in additional messes to clean up. Messes that would originate from inside the bodies of those dogs, if you can catch our meaning. If there’s one thing worse than cleaning up the dishes after Thanksgiving, it’s also having to clean up a big puddle of dog sick in the middle of the kitchen floor at the same time.
A Real Emergency
In case you don’t know, grapes – even in small amounts – are extremely harmful to dogs. Deadly, even. If you know that and then find out that your dog ate an entire pound of grapes, there’s only one place you can go: straight to the veterinarian. One gassed-out doggy and an expensive stomach pump later, and the next step is to hang a sign around your dog's neck so that it can be properly shamed on the internet.
We looked up how many grapes a pound is, and we were told that it was “two swags (yes, they said swags) that are six to seven inches in length.” We don’t know what that means and we’ve decided we don’t really need to know. Well, at least this cute doggy is still around to be shamed.
