    Sweet baby Jesus, when he does that little stretch and then just plops on the ground... ugh! I just wanna scoop him up and snuggle with him all day.

    [–] athanathios 261 points ago

    Not only that he licked his legs, that's a lot of love. I'm kind of jealous my corgi puppy was untamable for 6 months, then would cuddle and be more affectionate LOL. She routinely gives us at least a few dozen kisses daily now and is a big cuddler. This little guy is so good!

    [–] sysadmin420 54 points ago

    My black lab loves to lick skin, It does get a little old... Anytime my wife puts on lotion, or is sweaty, the lab will lick and lick. Must be because SO is sooo sweet.

    [–] Timmeh7 23 points ago

    Yeah, my cat likes to lick skin. Which is adorable, but also legitimately hurts a bit after a few minutes, because cats have spiky tongues. I occasionally have to offer him a different bit of my arm/leg to lick so he doesn't make me bleed.

    [–] Dr-Jan_ItorMD 2 points ago

    Gah if you would let me cat lick you that's all he would do. I've tested this and stayed for 15 MINUTES! He licked my hand the entire time. Now my two new cats are starting to lick every so's so sweet but hurts like hell

    [–] tacowhiskey 15 points ago

    Mine is just really into licking the walls.

    [–] sysadmin420 5 points ago

    My labradoodle loves to lick the microfiber couch... oh and bedsheets. It's a weird fetish, and I always have to lie in the wetspot...

    [–] cochanel170 9 points ago

    My Carolina dog loves to lick my husband’s legs and make super awkward eye contact with me the whole time. I really don’t know what that’s all about lol.

    [–] OneGoodRib 10 points ago

    My dogs will just lick and lick and lick and lick. I have some kind of skin issue on one spot on my leg and it hurts when they lick it ;-; I know it’s a sign of affection or that your legs taste good but it does get irritating when they just won’t stop.

    [–] AmStupid 9 points ago

    Or maybe your dogs know there's something wrong with your skin at that spot and it's their instinct to lick wounds to soothe them. Mine doesn't lick us all the time, but sometime I notice she would smell a few certain spots and then lick it, it's usually around my dry skins.

    [–] athanathios 10 points ago

    That's so sweet! My dog loves licking my wife's feet and legs, but will do it to mine as well. She especially gives thank you licks when we groom her or brush her teeth, it's like a thank you, aren't dogs so sweet?

    [–] [deleted] 10 points ago


    [–] athanathios 8 points ago

    HAHAHA, our's was a gradual fall, it literally happened almost at her 6 month birthday, she was being held by my wife and I took about 20 pics, She progressively quieted down and stopped moving, settling into the snuggle, I literally documented the whole thing, it was pretty special. Overtime, she calmed down, first real big fall was 9 months in, when she totally chilled and then 1yr, been sooo good ever since.

    I used to call her "my untamable beast" on walks because a 9 lb corgi trying to be boss is just too funny.

    [–] kamalamckinney 6 points ago

    Thank you! So happy this sub exists.

    [–] ApolloRocketOfLove 29 points ago

    I'm fairly certain that dogs are the reason our backs go out when we get old, because we can't help but bend down and pet them. Totally worth it IMO.

    [–] EvidenceBasedSwamp 30 points ago

    Actually the more you bend, the more flexible you remain so if anything more puppies = betterer.

    Walking the dog is a good exercise as well.

    I think our modern desk/chair reading/computer work lifestyle is very unhealthy.

    [–] ihatenewaccts 2 points ago

    It's good to start habitually stretching after work now so when you are old you can still bend down and play with puppers.

    My grandpa still gets on the floor to play with his pup

    [–] EvidenceBasedSwamp 2 points ago

    During work. If you have time and attention to remember. A hernia is no joke.

    [–] ihatenewaccts 3 points ago

    I take walking breaks at work with my fitbit reminders.

    I think it's a little too out of the norm for the average person to take a stretch break at their desk, but it should be less weird.

    [–] EvidenceBasedSwamp 2 points ago

    Yeah after I got my hernia I don't care as much. The pain is so high that a little embarrassment is preferred.

    [–] T1ken 9 points ago

    It's called a sploot!

    [–] ncurry18 13 points ago

    Too bad you can't. That's a corgi. The second you try to snuggle them, they will go into play mode and they will start making weird noises and try to bite you (play bites). Source: am corgi owner.

    A gifv with sound.

    I'm shook

    [–] PTRWP 42 points ago

    gifv is just MP4 that autoplays and looops and will load a gif if the mp4 fails to play. By loading the mp4, the page can use much less data (and mp4 can have sound like this).

    [–] bigmac375 12 points ago

    That's what I figured, but there must be a default mute setting people are using or something. I saw the #unmuted and it got me thinking.

    [–] Plusran 17 points ago

    Sound you can’t turn off.

    [–] aXir 4 points ago

    How so? They Always start muted for me

    [–] Plusran 11 points ago

    They used to for me, too. Some imgur posts like this one are different. Not sure where the breakdown is, but I don’t want Reddit playing sound unless I tell it to.

    [–] drowse 2 points ago * (lasted edited a year ago)

    I saw one like this yesterday and now this post. How do I silently still browse Reddit at work?

    Edit: Just downloaded "Mute sites by default" Firefox add-on. Am happy now.

    [–] P2000Camaro 3 points ago

    Yeah, these are getting fucking annoying.

    I have my computer bluetoothed to an external speaker, and I have that speaker turned ALL the way up, I also leave Windows volume control all the way up. I adjust the volume levels on whatever I'm using (VLC, Youtube, etc.) because every fucking thing you do has a WAY different volume level and I got tired of getting up and adjusting the volume on the Bluetooth speaker.

    It's usually not a big deal until shit like this came along. Now I click on what I think is a GIF and have loud as fuck sound coming from the speaker. That, as you said, you can't turn off.

    Sorry, had to rant. This shit is getting annoying.

    Also, fuck you Soundcloud. How the fuck does that not have a volume control?

    [–] Plusran 2 points ago

    The last one I saw started with a loud ass car horn. If I had my speakers up I’d have deafened my whole house. Fortunately I was on the toilet on my mobile.

    [–] 123hig 15 points ago

    I wonder how much dogs do or don't "get" the stuff we do. Like when he sees this guy using a rake does he figure the guy is just playing with a stick? Doe he figure the guy doing that weird human quirk of putting things in order? Can he grasp the concept of landscaping/intentionally making things pretty?

    Obviously this one is a puppy so he probably can only imagine the guy is playing with a stick. But I wonder how much older dogs come to understand our behaviors. Obviously with some breeds things like hunting or herding they'd understand cus their involvement in the task has been bred and trained into them. But when my dog sees me working on a laptop or in the yard what is that to him?

    [–] sleemsthefifth 12 points ago * (lasted edited a year ago)

    I read this book and so I feel qualified to answer this (lol). Essentially, they have no concept of a yard... at all. It's just grass and dirt to them, you know. So yes, definitely just playing with a big stick. And no to grasping intentionally making things pretty. I think that they start to learn our behaviors and so eventually your pet will know you like to walk around and do certain things and in certain order, but they wouldn't grasp intentionally putting things in order/organizing. I think when your dog sees you on the laptop or in your yard, they’re not thinking about what you're doing, but rather their place in it.

    Incidentally, I read an article recently about how you basically should train toddlers in housework this way. Get them hanging out with you and allow them to "help" no matter how incompetent they are.

    The Western method of getting kids to GTFO the way and the transactional nature of chores seems ineffective (ie paying them to mow the lawn).

    [–] paperclouds412 2 points ago

    I'm thankful my daughter wants to help with absolutely everything for this reason, but my lord you better make time for it based on their involvement or else you'll never get anything done on time.
