I feel like, as we go through life, sometimes we are the dog, and sometimes we are the cat watching.

I would have gone with that Coldplay song

At one point I was absolutely certain that my cat was throwing raging parties with all his friends while I was out of the house, so I set up a time-lapse video to catch him in action. I was wrong.

Of COURSE we sleep on the bed....

I was always tempted to do this, but with a remote control recording that we could play that would say "DOG. GET OFF THE BED." because the video of his reaction to our disembodied voices would have been hilarious.

My dog does this in his bed. A silence falls over the homestead as we witness a supernova of cute.

Day 812: I edit a looped video of myself sleeping to foil the monkey's secret camera. I upload it to the camera. He re-uploads it to YouTube. Stupid monkey. Doesn't he know I have his Google password?

I love how the dog seemingly looks right into the camera, all "Yeah, that's right, how ya like me now?"

Sadly, the uploader probably poached this content from elsewhere, and seems to be something of an Islamophobe judging by their profile history.

This asshole does this every single time we come in from a walk. He also learned how to break out of his crate. The first time it happened I thought, "huh, didn't latch Gibbon's crate." Then I woke up with him in the bed with me one night when I knew I'd latched the crate. As soon as I woke up he hopped off the bed, got into his crate, and then looked at the door like, "oh shit, I don't know how to make the door lock."

He's super cute and fun and I don't really mind him being on the bed other than he tends to think 5:00am is party time. Dogs and cats are the best, people. The best.

Sorry, I have a hunch that's the dog looking to the human trainer who is in the room...

Cute dog though...

The dog looks so happy. Don't particularly care if it was faked.

My mother, growing up, lived at the junction of a t-intersection, so you could see into the living room as you drove down the street. She also had a cat who was Absolutely Not allowed in the living room. And she never went in there when people were home. But whenever they came back from somewhere, they saw the cat sitting on the couch through the window as they drove up.

This is why I roll my eyes at people who think their cats are so well-trained that they obey even when the cats are alone.

Me either. Sometimes it's nice to suspend one's cynicism.

Fie, fie with your hunches!

This kind of manic, ecstatic face-rub is exactly what my dog does every time we go out in the snow, except he focuses more on also doing the sidestroke across the yard.

That's if he's on a leash. If he's not on a leash, he tends more towards barking at the air.

I hope they let that dog on the bed now. This dog gets PURE JOY from this bed. Let this dog on the bed.

fuck you for getting in the trash, molly. i don't care how much joy you get from it.

I would totally make the dog sit down and watch the video playback, and then turn to him (?) and say in slow, menacing voice, "Who's a naughty boy, then?"

Trained/staged or not, that dog appears to be having a blast.

BuddhaInABucket: Hobbes has his favorite spot. And that spot is clearly *his*.

A few years ago, I used timelapse to discover that one of my cats really does sit on my head in the middle of the night. (5:20-ish in this video)

I have always wondered what dogs are thinking and now I know: yakety sax.

It all makes so much sense now.

I just knew that Siamese was going to be all "Back of bitch! I will fuck you up!" and sure enough, there it was.

This is because Siamese are Not. To. Be. Fucked. With. Eventually even this happy dog will come to realize that.

However, until that happens, I'm pleased to know that there is a naughty dog making sure that the owners sheets smell as much like her as possible. Because that's what dogs do.
