A delightful curation! The ones with floppy-eared puppies are the best.

There are way more of these than I would have guessed. So thanks for that.

Wow. I had no idea this was a "thing".

Awesome.

My mother's puppy used to spend a lot of time trying to subdue the letterbox. Same sort of deal.

That's far too easy, you need a cat for the job.

Luckily, "dudekiller vs spring door stop" hasn't hit Youtube yet, but it's eerily similar.

My one year old does the same thing with less barking and more giggling.

The doorstops in a couple of these videos seem like they're in an odd spot. Like they're not actually in danger of getting hit by a door.

I mean, awwww.

I used to do this as a kid. One of the few toys I can remember. I liked the sound....

Sure it's funny now, but I don't wanna be the guy who happens to walk past one of these dogs whilst naked and aroused.

These dogs are already naked, what are you talking about?

You mean your junk makes a sproingy sound when swatted?

These things are an issue in my house - my dog thinks the rubber bumpers on the end of the springs are chewing gum. He'll pull one off and chew on it, literally, all day.

You think the "sproing, sproing, sproing" of the spring gets annoying until you hear the "squeesh,squeesh, squeesh" of a hollow rubber pellet being savored by a canine.

Cute. But note to self: never, ever, get a spring door stop if you plan to both have a dog and sleep at any point in time.

Yours doesn't?

Huh.

Maybe I need a little blue pill.

I am going to start selling boards with spring door stops attached as dog toys. They will be called "Spring Door DON'T Stop (the fun!)" and will cost $20. Email me your orders.

Sometimes even with a quite large cat installed the door still bangs into the wall.

They have highly compressible fur. A common problem with door cats. You need to get them a sweater.

We used to have a Sheltie, and the only time he ever played with the door stop was in the middle of the night. The wall of the apartment was like an enormous sounding board.

Maybe they all think it's their tail, since they've all had theirs cut off.

There’s a “no squeaky toys” rule in place for my dachshund puppy. If she gets one, she finds exactly where the squeaker is and proceeds to chew that exact spot repeatedly. This usually lasts about two minutes before the toy is forcibly extracted from her grasp and thrown someplace she can’t get to.
