Vets say dogs feel bad when you "shame" them on the internet.

Seriously? Vets think that it embarrasses dogs when you post their guilty pics on the internet?

Internet 'dog-shaming' craze undermines pets' dignity, say vets who claim unfortunate canines look terrified in online photos

How many dogs actually look at the internet and say "OMG! My owner put me on there! What will my pals at the dog park say when they see that?"

Of course for some dogs, even that's not an issue. Guilt? Shame? Remorse? Maybe for some dogs, but...

I shoulda just bought a hamster.


  1. Don't get me wrong - I think animals, particularly some of our companion animals, have been very underrated as far as intelligence, emotional development, etc. But I'm pretty sure that being out on the "shame" site is not high on their concerns.

    The dogs are only bothered if the picture shows them wearing the cone of same

  3. Uh oh. I'm expecting a knock on the door from the ASPCA any minute now. I knew I shouldn't have taught Angus HTML.

    It should have been cone of shame.
    Damn auto correct

  5. No, you wouldn't like hamsters - they bite clean though to the knuckles and hang on tight.

    Murphy's got to be a little nicer than that.
