Why do Dogs Always Look So Guilty?

When I come home from work and find my curtains shredded or a hairball on my bed, I shoot an angry glance at my cats, but they don`t express any remorse, and look at me with total indifference.

But when I find my shoe torn to shreds my pooch, Mandy, looks as guilty as sin. Dogs would make horrible poker players, while felines would make a killing at the game.

Mandy looks guilty even when she hasn`t done anything wrong, guilt is their default expression.

We love canines because they are so transparently honest, they can`t get away with anything.

There are a gazillion and one videos on YouTube depicting dogs acting as guilty as hell:

Visit your local animal shelter, and you will fall in love with a guilty-looking puppy that you won`t be able to resist from adopting.

Moose the Snoring Pooch is an Internet Sensation

When a human snores he is oblivious to the racket hes making, and he sleeps like a baby while waking up everyone in the household. The only cure for snoring is duct tape for the snoring son of a gun, or earplugs for his longsuffering partner.

Click the link at the bottom of the page to see a sleeping pooch wake himself up with his gentle snoring.

Moose, a mutt who happens to be an emotional support animal, sleeps with his owner, and I doubt he has ever woke her up with his soft snoring.

Moose has a smile on his face as he sleeps next to his owner, and his owner, Alexis Waclawski, is also smiling.

Waclawski rescued Moose from the humane society, and he is registered as an emotional support animal to aid her with anxiety and depression. The dog underwent six weeks of training before he was certified as a therapy animal. But truth be told from the moment a puppy is born he is an unofficial emotional support animal.

My pooch, Mandy, would probably flunk obedience school, but she`s been an excellent emotional support pet for the last decade.

There is an emotional support puppy waiting for you at your local animal shelter, he will help you deal with the trials and tribulations of life. What are you waiting for? Adopt a puppy today!

Moose, the snoring pooch, has become an Internet sensation garnering over a million views. Check out his video:

New York Theater Invites Patrons to Bring Their Dogs

“A theater in upstate New York is telling patrons to bring their dogs to four movies this month.

For its Dog Movie Week from Feb. 11 to Feb. 17, the Smith Opera House in Geneva, N.Y., will show dog-related films Best in Show, Must Love Dogs, The Artist and Bolt. The theatre will offer free treats to dogs, who can attend for free, as long as they are leashed and well-behaved.”

UPI

We`ve all taken a dog to a movie, we all have a date from hell horror story.

But taking a real dog to a movie is a dream come true; I can`t think of anything better than sharing a bucket of popcorn with my pooch as we enjoy a movie in a theater.

When a dude takes a date to a movie, he`s usually the one who pays for both tickets and the overpriced snacks. A night at the movies can easily set you back $50, but for Dog Movie Week at the Smith Opera House canines attend for free, plus they get free dog snacks.

Going to the movies has gone to the dogs, and I`m doggone happy.

Study: Dog Owners Would Rather Be With Pets Than Friends

“More than half of American dog owners admit they flake out on social events to hang out with their pet, according to new research.

The study of 2,000 dog owners found skipping out on human commitments specifically to get a bit of quality furry friend time is a common occurrence.

That bond is understandable given the way they aid our mental health – from their ability to lessen relationship stress to softening bad days at work and more, the average dog gets their owner through five (4.83) stressful events every week.

In fact, six in ten survey-takers said their dog often takes care of them in some way, shape or form, reinforcing the important two-way relationship between dogs and humans.”

Fox 10

I`m not surprised by the results of this study, I`d rather hang out with my pooch, Mandy, than engage in any social interaction with a friend, colleague or family member.

Of course I would rather spend quality time with my loyal and faithful canine companion than attend a social event where rats are scheming to climb the social ladder or flirting to find a rutting partner for the night.

Even innocuous small talk with a friend or coworker is like navigating a minefield, whereas walking or playing with Mandy is an oasis of peace and relaxation in a chaotic world.

Don`t feel guilty if you flaked out on attending a baby shower or a friend`s birthday party to hang out with your dog. That adorable baby will probably grow up to be an ungrateful spoiled brat, and your friend is probably bonking your girlfriend, whereas your pooch will remain faithful and loyal for the rest of his life.

Nativity Scene Gone to the Dogs

“A woman has been overwhelmed by the response to her dog nativity scene after a photograph posted on Twitter was liked more than 83,000 times.

Jo Kingston, who runs a dog walking and grooming business in Mountsorrel, Leicestershire, said `it`s gone bonkers`.

BBC

A Nativity Scene fills Christians with a feeling of hope and promise that into this world of sin and sorrow a Savior is born.

Non-Christians may walk by a Nativity Scene and consider it just another symbol of the Holiday Season.

But nobody can look at this blessed pic of a Doggie Nativity Scene and not exclaim: IT`S A WONDERFUL WORLD!

Merry Christmas!

Rookie Airport Bomb-Sniffing Dog Pooping While on Duty

“Everyone makes mistakes early in their careers.

So the fact that a rookie bomb-sniffing dog has been pooping in the terminals and concourses at Midway International Airport is being dealt with delicately by her employer.

`It`s not going to ruin her career,` Kevin McCarthy, who heads up Transportation Security Administration operations at Midway, said earlier this week.

`It doesn`t impact her ability to do the job.`

The issue: the pooch, who`s just over two years old, has been getting a bit jittery in crowds.”

Chicago Sun Times

Putting up with an incontinent bomb-sniffing pooch is like a breath of fresh air compared to dealing with TSA Agents who think they`re proctologists.

There is no reason to act as if the shit has hit the fan, rookies are allowed to make mistakes.

I get jittery in large crowds also, although I haven`t crapped myself in frustration and nervousness, I have farted away my anxiety.

I don`t give a crap if a bomb-sniffing canine takes a crap while on duty, it`s a small price to pay for lessening the risk of getting blown to smithereens.

I`m glad the dog has an understanding trainer, there`s no reason to banish the poor creature to the doghouse.

Evil Woman Begs Cops to Shoot Dog Who Was Ripping Apart Her Car’s Bumper

“On Nov. 9 in an apartment parking lot in Dalton, Georgia, a dog went ape-shit on a Dodge Journey (an automobile that falls squarely in the unfortunate category) in an effort to catch some cats hiding in the engine bay. The cars owner was livid, and asked a responding officer to shoot the canine.

The car`s owner, Jessica Dilallo, can be heard asking the responding officer, Lieutenant Matthew Locke, to use force, saying:

`You can`t throw a rock at him, you can`t do anything?…You could shoot him!`”

Jalpopnik.Com

If I looked outside my window and saw a dog ripping apart the bumper on my car in an effort to catch some cats hiding in the engine bay, my first concern would be for the terrified kitty cats, and my second worry would be that the crazy pooch might injure himself attacking my vehicle.

I wouldn`t even be thinking about my automobile, especially if it was a nondescript freaking Dodge Journey, my car is insured after all.

The car`s owner, Jessica Dilallo, screamed and begged at the police officers to shoot the dog. She could care less that a bullet might kill the cats or a human being, her only thought was that her car was being destroying right before her eyes.

Not to put too fine a point on it, but Jessica Dilallo is a monster who doesn`t deserve to live in civilized society. Diallo should be exiled to an uninhabited island where there are no humans or animals that she can hurt or kill.

Police officers` mandate to “protect and serve” extends to the animal family, and of course they didn`t hurt the hapless pooch.

The Pitbull-mix was taken to a shelter, the owner was identified, and he promised to pay for the damage to the wretched woman`s vehicle.

Study: People Are More Empathetic Towards Dogs Than Fellow Humans

“Some dog owners love their four-legged friends so much that they treat them like they would a child – and sometimes even say they prefer them to some friends and family.

And according to new research, there`s a scientific reason why.

A study published in the journal Society and Animals suggested that people are more empathetic towards dogs than fellow humans.”

Business Insider

I make no apologies over the fact that I prefer the company of canines over human beings.

If a virus wiped out the entire human population except for me, I wouldn`t be terribly distressed as long as animals, and especially my pooch, were immune to the deadly virus.

When I`m with a human being, whether it`s a close friend or a stranger, holding up my end of the conversation is tiresome, but when I`m with Mandy my dog, our conversation is almost telepathic, we communicate nonverbally with glances and facial expressions that speaks of our loving bond.

Of course I`m more empathetic with towards dogs than my fellow humans, dogs are guileless and trusting unlike deceitful and` treacherous humans.

Unfortunately, dogs can`t read my essays, but if you love dogs more than humans let me know.

Fall is the Perfect Time to Walk Your Dog

The dog days of summer are finally over, your pooch survived the season of ticks and fleas and you made it through the cruel months of sweat, sunburns and humidity.

Many a summer day you stayed inside the confines of your air-conditioned home, sipping a cold one and watching TV while your faithful companion was begging to go outside for a walk.

Now that the temperatures and the leaves are falling, there`s no excuse not to walk your dog every day.

Fall is the perfect time to go on long hikes or leisurely walks with your canine buddy.

A dog isn`t a high-maintenance pet, all he requires is a little love, a few bones and a daily walk so he can bond with his owner.

Fall is also the perfect time to go camping, consider taking your pooch instead of your drama queen girlfriend who will go into hysterics if she sees a fox or a snake.

Many campgrounds are dog-friendly, enjoying the great outdoors with your best friend is heaven on Earth.

Fall was created for a man and his dog, get with the program and go enjoy a walk with your pet.

Should You Let Your Dog Lick You?

“Dogs lick us because they love us, but should we love their kisses?

There are more than 700 different types of bacteria in a dog`s mouth – and that`s just normal bacteria (it doesn`t count the rotting ham sandwich Fido found on his morning walk). So, that saying about a dog`s mouth being clean is rubbish.

Veterinarians Will Draper and Francoise Tyler, Web MD contributors from The Village Vets practices in Atlanta, Ga., say there are two reasons to be concerned: One, if a dog licks someone who has a weak immune system (like those with cancer) or two, if the dog has a medical condition that could spread.

There`s also a more obvious reason you might not want a smooch from your pooch, and that is: They put a lot of nasty stuff in their mouth.

USA TODAY

There`s nothing more heartwarming than watching a puppy lick a child, or a grown man kiss his pooch.

But in a society where every product has a warning label, some germaphobes are warning dog lovers that exchanging smooches with Fido is unsanitary and potentially dangerous.

I realize that unlike cats dogs don`t have a cleanliness fetish, they will greedily eat any rotting piece of meat they find during their daily walk, and they have a penchant for licking their nether regions.

But when my dog licks me when I come home from work, his demonstrative affection for me overwhelms any concerns I may have about what else he may have been licking.

When a man kisses a prostitute the last thing on his mind is what other creep she has been kissing, a dog owner`s love for his pet is stronger than the lust that a John has for a prostitute.

I don`t care if my pooch, Mandy, has 700 different types of bacteria in her mouth, a kiss from her is a tonic that fortifies me from life`s trials and tribulations.

Life is too short: Kiss your pooch!
