Yes dogs stiff their own butts. Chase their own tail. Roll about in poo. They are happy playing with an old sock or even better a new pair of pants. Yes their antics don’t suggest millions of years of evolution or natural selection of the best genes.


When it comes to getting round their human owners – they are off the scale. Nothing on this planet comes remotely close.

This is the face of a dog who doesn’t want to go out in the rain. Guess what. It worked again.

  1. Ummmm… are you certain there is not even a teeny little bit of ‘transference’ going on here??

    I mean, let’s be honest, he could look like an Ai-ai with a bad case of distemper and it is unlikely you’d drag him out in a cold, wet, grey, Yorkshire morning…a-gain!

    But ‘That Look’ is an irresistible super-power and he clearly knows how to use it to full effect. ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. Yes, I swear my lab’s face was built with a specific droopy eye just to look pathetic when necessary. I can’t tell what the pug is looking at – but I know she wants something, even to apologize, when she tries to lick my nose. Clever little creatures ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. And you know what else? They may not have those signs of thousands of years of evolution, and they may not even have opposable thumbs, but when they say that a dog is man’s best friend … they are so very right. They sense when you need love and they are there to provide it. Give me a dog over most humans any day!

      1. I used to have a 130-pound rottweiler/border collie mix who thought he was still a tiny puppy, and as soon as I would sit down in my chair, he would come bounding and jump over the arm of the chair to plop in my lap! It’s a wonder I can still walk! And he was so smart! At the time, I lived alone and worked long hours, so when I came home at night, I usually just fixed a sandwich for supper. As soon as I put the sandwich on the table, he would run to the front door and start barking his fool head off. I would go to the door, discover nobody there, then turn back to the kitchen to find … the sandwich had disappeared! Believe it or not, it took me months to finally catch onto his tricks! ๐Ÿ™‚ I did love that guy!

      1. That’s not a meow. That’s a laugh.

        We don’t have curtains so, Ollie doesn’t do that. BUT…he does enjoy bouncing on the King size bed at 7am…or flying off the bed to the rocking chair at the window. The worst is the jump from the top of the couch, to my chest, to the floor. Knocks the wind out of me!

  3. My little Bonnie had the same look, even if it was only spitting. If I still took her out she would stop at the end of the path to our home, have a quick wee on the grass and then swiftly turn around and do everything in her tiny Schnauzer power to go back inside immediately. If we still went for a walk she would be grumpy. Believe me, Schnauzer’s can do grumpy so well. It’s the beard!
