Dog Shaming

I apologize if someone’s posted about this, I did a search but came up empty.

I give you…

Essentially, dog owners write notes about theirs dogs various transgressions and take a photo of their pooch along with the note.

It’s a lot funnier than it sounds.

Here’s my favorite so far.

Here’s a clip they link to to the Today show. Al Roker can choke on it - this is hilarious.

I found them all pretty funny, but…HLN is running the exact same story for like 3 days in a row now. WTF? Is there no news out there or something?

Wow, I totally missed the news story. A colleague sent me the link this morning and I’ve been ferreting through the pictures as I get a chance.

I’m shocked that anyone would consider this offensive, although I guess I shouldn’t be.

I like this one:

Thanks, malkavia!

You’re welcome! :slight_smile: The most priceless part of that pic is the cat’s face. “wait, what?”

What if the dogs read the signs! I mean, come on. Just think how bad they’d feel.

I think Marley should be a little concerned about this one!

Sometimes I eat Marley when she gets out of line

I saw it yesterday and I think it’s hilarious.

And boy do I have a few things I could submit…

When I first saw it, I laughed and thought “Well, our new puppy hasn’t done anything yet to post a pic of.” The key word, of course, is ‘yet’. Today he’s become comfortable enough in the house that he chases the cats all over, something the cats are not big fans of. And of course, the pup looks like he’s sorry for something ALL THE TIME ANYWAY, so if he ever does really put on the puppy-dog face, we’re in big trouble. :stuck_out_tongue:

I liked the one where the dog barks at his own farts. But only the loud ones, so it’s ok! :slight_smile:

squeee That is an adorable guilty face.

This may seem like a good idea at first glance. Laugh it up, humans, very funny. What you may not have considered are the feelings of our canine friends. When you indulge in dog shaming, you are saying it is ok to treat animals with less respect than you would treat your fellow humans.

If human shaming isn’t ok, neither is this. Did you know that a dog has a sixth sense and can pick up on the tiniest, barely perceptible vocal cues? If you are pretending to shame your dog, your demeanor may give off cues that you don’t realize you are releasing. The dog picks it up, though, and they feel ashamed just the same as if you were yelling at it or hitting it, or rubbing its nose in its poop. Would you condone those things? Of course not, so why in the world would you ok I can’t keep this up anymore. Just kidding. Shame your doggies to your heart’s content, folks.


I can’t imagine how you lasted that long–did you take breaks between sentences to read depressing threads? :smiley:

I was disappointed. I didn’t find them funny. I think is 100x better. Fake, but funny.

Thanks for letting us know that you know that dogs do not, in real life, text you.

Cats, on the other hand, are bastards with a cellphone.

Ok, the dog text link is funnier than I think it should be. :stuck_out_tongue:

And Doggio needs to see this!

This is my favorite so far.

This onemade me lol.

There’s also Cat Shaming. But only on Tumblr. Not in real life.
