Chuckling at a meme that captures the epic fail of a human being doing something simple is just cruel. That person has feelings, and has probably been made aware that their moment of vulnerability has turned into an Internet roast.
But dog fails are different and so, so awesome. Dogs lack the same awareness that humans have when it comes to how others see them. Also, dogs don’t care at all about the opinions of others. They have their packs, their toys, and their humans, and as long as they eat and sleep basically all day long, they’re perfectly content.
So since we won’t be hurting any feelings here, let’s revel in most awkward moments dogs have experienced, shall we? Here are 18 dogs who totally forgot how to dog.
1. Clumsy Corgie
The look of panic on this Corgie’s face right before the trip is EVERYTHING.
2. Terrible Treat-Catcher
Where’d the treat go? ON YOUR HEAD.
3. Dinnertime Mixup
You’re not even supposed to be in there, and now you can’t get out?
4. Double The Fumble
10 points for style, 0 points for skill.
5. Flippin’ For Food
It’s OK, puppy. Your dinner won’t bite. You’re the one doing the biting in this scenario, just FYI.
6. So Not Fetch
This is clearly the hardest thing this Frenchie has ever had to do. And that says a whole lot!
7. Just Can’t Jump
The first dog clearly has this jumping thing down and probably never forgets how to dog. The second dog? Not so much.
8. Wet Alarm Clock
Well, that’s one way to wake up from a nap.
9. Doggy Door Disaster
“But the cat made it look so easy… ”
10. Bizarre Bathroom Break
This is not even remotely normal.
11. Wrong Kind Of Dog Tag
Dog, you are not a door knob. We meant dog tag as in the little shiny thing with your name on it that you wear on your collar.
12. Football Flip
But like, how?
13. Baywatch Blooper
Good thing this pup isn’t a lifeguard running to save a drowning child.
14. Selfie Dog
Taking selfies on my phone again. #selfie #dogselfie #dogstagram #dogsofinstagram #dog #instadog #instacute #instaderp #ilovemydog #instavizsla #ilovemyvizsla #worldvizslaclub #vizsla #vizslagram #vizslalove #vizslasrock #vizslaoftheday #vizslasofinstagram #vizslasofinstagram101 #derp #derpdog A photo posted by Lauren, Dan, and Riley (@leftlanelauren) on
Forgot how to dog AND how to take a flattering selfie? SMH.
15. Falling For Playtime
16. Strange Sitter
Nope, that’s not right.
17. Frisbee Fail
Don’t just stand there, dog. You’re supposed to catch that… or, you know, at least try.
18. Feline Canine
This dog has completely given up on being a dog and is now a cat.
