If you can get past the little baby hiding from the dog by wearing someone’s shirt over his head while he crawls around and giggles, you’ll find some more cute clips waiting for you. Hey, what is it about dogs that makes human babies laugh so hard? If babies could only tell us what they’re thinking–!
You’d think having four legs instead of just two would be an advantage on the ice. But you’d be wrong.
And what about that dog trying to run up the iced sliding board? Was he serious, or just having fun?
Learn from cats and dogs. If there’s any fun at hand, go for it.
Why can’t dogs figure out how to carry a long stick through a not-wide-enough opening? Parrots easily solve this problem, and cats simply won’t bother with it.
And what is it about thick, black, slimy mud that draws dogs like iron filings to a magnet? You’ll never find a lizard getting up that such tricks.
But we love them anyway.
Cats can’t help chuckling and shaking their heads at the way dogs try to accommodate us humans. Dogs can’t help it–they aim to please. Cats aim to be pleased. But before we write them off, watch what happens with the kitten who falls into a gravel pit. Valiant is as valiant does!
There’s more to life than paper bags and cardboard boxes. Look at all these snazzy toys you can buy for your pet. Some of them are skillfully designed to confused a dog or cat. But the pet’s revenge will be… shall we say comprehensive?
Dogs know where the bodies are buried–because they buried ’em. Well, okay, not whole bodies. Just bones. They have a powerful urge to bury their bones so that some other dog doesn’t steal them. For indoor dogs, that means burying the bones in beds or sofas. It also means that sooner or later a hapless human is going to lie down right on top of a bone.
Most of the adults of my acquaintance gripe and moan when it snows; but dogs and cats know better. They go for the gusto! (That was an advertising slogan once upon a time, but I forget what brand of beer it was for. The ol’ memory ain’t what it used to be.) Anyhow, kick back and watch them have fun.
Have any of you ever belly-flopped your way down the stairs? I’d try it, only the front door is so close to the foot of the stairs, I’d probably bang my head against it.
You’d think dogs would figure out stairs just by watching humans and other dogs using them. I mean, it’s not rocket science for dogs, is it? But try telling that to some of these guys.
This is horrible. Why do dogs do this? And then they want to come back into the house–!
I once got into a mud fight with another kid, but we had to stop because we were laughing too hard. My mother did not laugh when I got home. But it’s easier to clean off a boy than to clean off a dog. Unless the boy has fur, of course.
In this video you will not find any cat who looks even a little bit happy about being in a Halloween costume dreamed up for him by daft humans. This is not a thing that makes cats happy.
Some of the dogs, though, look like they really enjoy the opportunity to ham it up.
If nothing else, Halloween does make clear the line between cats and dogs. Here they couldn’t be more different.
