Take it further. A picture of you eating hot dogs on a t-shirt.

I want a shirt for myself with pictures of my dog eating a hotdog on it.

Also a pineapple I can sleep in during the day.

I guess I could get some stuff for my dog too.

Yeah, if they aren't selling that pineapple scaled up for human use, they're missing a market.

I'm mostly impressed that Brant's been a good sport about the whole thing, and apparently they're now text-buddies.

I've had a sour taste about dog_rates ever since he admitted renaming dogs to more anglicized names to get more engagement. We'll always have Bront I guess.

It's not all bad. The internet-- it's not all bad.

This is the good news we all needed today. I, for one, celebrate Brunt's new doggo friend.

This is the same Twitter account that was recently caught Whitewashing dog Names.
Sorry but I give this dog a 0/10.

Does what it says on the tin...

That's a GOOD DOG!

This has always been one of my favorite responses to Brent, from one of my favorite Twitter accounts, Chaucer Doth Tweet.

Oh holy crud!! I saw this earlier on Twitter but didn’t put it together. Maybe everything really *is* awesome.

14 seems a little low. This is no average dog, it's a really good dog.
posted by jacquilynne at 4:37 PM on July 23


I like the thought that 14/10 is just average for dogs. They're all good dogs, Brænt.

We really have reached Peak 2018 when I can't even enjoy a feel-good dog_rates post on MetaFilter because of REASONS.

Or you can accept that it's an imperfect world and people, especially young people, make mistakes, and get on with enjoying the good things nonetheless.
