This Is What Happens When You Put Dogs In A Photo Booth

This was lovely, thank you!

It also encouraged me to show my affection for my friend Mr. Pterodactyl by licking him and now he's grumpy so this is a win all around.

Seems very similar to what happens when you put people in a photo booth. First they look at the camera, then they lick each other, then they look at the camera again.

Way to slip 'em the tongue, Bumper!

you know, this could be a new meme: cats in photo booths, ferrets in photo booths, hedgehogs, stink bugs, those worms that nest under your skin and then turn out to be 250 feet long

I cannot say what I did in the photo booth at our local Six Flags. All I know is that some girl was laughing her ass off as I was pulling my shirt down.

Honking in delight and slapping my hands like a seal.

I am now paid back in full for getting out of bed this morning. Thank you, and please feel free to do this again.

I love the two grumpy bulldogs three sets down.

I was in my brother's tiny honda civic for 8 hours with two dogs a few Thanksgivings ago, and I basically spent the entire time turned around taking photos of them. The close quarters definitely had an effect on their combined mood.

Start of the trip, everyone's ready to go.
Fatigue setting in.
Traveling is hard.
Night has fallen, the dogs have become manic.

Wonderful! Thanks for sharing.

(Did anyone read the comments at that site? What the hell is wrong with people?)

If anyone you know has a negative idea about all pitbulls, please show them these photos.

Just like my pitbull mix--wants to lick everyone in the face; me, you, the cat.

What happens when it's a guy, two cats and a Boston.

Awww, pitties are big lickmonsters. Never met one who didn't want to give kisses. Profusely. While also bruising nearby knees with frantic wags of those bullwhip tails.

Adorable; however I have to dispute one small aspect... this may be what happens when you put a well behaved dog into a photobooth, however if your dog is, say, a mischievous and wildly destructive Australian cattle dog, I image what you get is a one frame of the dog, the next frame a blur, and all the subsequent frames documenting the rapid and absolute destruction of said photobooth.

If it were still functioning, I suspect the final frames would be a closeup of the dog's mouth as it casually gnawed on the camera.

(as I write this, one of these evil monsters is casually laying upside down on my feet, all four paws wildly kicking the air as she makes these yipping howls that would send your average hellhound slinking under the couch.)
