Is something wrong with the link? I just get shunted to the Bored Panda home page whenever I click it.

Here's the actual text of the URL, which works fine for me:

Yeah, that's what the URL on my browser said and I was still seeing the home page. I had to do a search on the site and click on the COMMENTS link to read the actual page.

I suspect this is my own computer being stupid though (and I'm at an office where they're upgrading me in 2 days so sod the whole thing anyway)

Looks like I picked the wrong week to quit sniffing glue!

I did, in fact, laugh out loud, startling the dog.

Funny, but some of these looked more perfectly set up than perfectly timed. This one made me laugh though.

I'm still laughing.

Yeah, I suspect some of these are posed. But I know from trying to take pictures of my dog that you still need good timing to get the photo before the dog moves her head or gets up to walk away.

Yep, and some of them look perfectly Photoshopped. Most of them are rather amazing though.

I had fun looking at these. But I have to question the authenticity of the yawning dog portrait. Do people have portraits of yawning dogs?

Background on that particular photo

Seriously? This was, like 3 seconds of google searches, like one search and one refined search. It's taken me 10x longer to write this comment than to find that link.

I wish that buzzfeed ripoff site (just typing that phrase made me laugh) would put in that effort.

It's not contextually funny like a lot of these, but I'm pretty happy with the timing of this shot of my Border Collie mutt, Kenda.

Have we given up being indignant about sites that suck up other people's photos and host them for profit? It's OK now?

All indignancy crumbles in the face of ADORABLE DOGGIES <3

But seriously, this is an age of content curation and those photos all seem to be sourced where possible, so I don't see why it's a big deal.

We totally do. It's enormous. If I knew how to send/post the image, I would, because pix-or-it-didnt-happen.

A crop from a lovely pic Wendi Pencille took of our Tish jumping.

Nina unimpressed with a recent victory, though she enjoyed her Victory Doughnut.

Not me. I only have oil paintings of my dogs dressed elegantly and looking dignified.

At the right moment, we all have dog heads.

I had to check and this was posted yesterday? Pretty sure I saw 80% of these in another "great timed pictures" listicle a week or two ago, and I'm not discounting the possibility that it was on boredpanda itself.

Bulldogs are masters of undignified snorty noises, of course. And you get them coming and going.
