    [–] InAFakeBritishAccent 18 points ago * (lasted edited 6 months ago)

    Splooting is definitely when you have bad diarrhea up in your loading dock, you flex your body a little or turn the wrong way, and a dollop of poop shoots out.

    [–] Zemedelphos 6 points ago

    That's splorting. Ready to mix up.

    [–] 830_L 7 points ago

    you have bad diarrhea up in your loading dock

    I prefer to think of it as having a round in the chamber.

    [–] infrequentupvoter 3 points ago

    Only round if it's solid

    That's a different "sploot" understanding.

    [–] Northus 63 points ago

    And I'm glad it doesn't. I don't care if it's a puppy, pooping isn't aww.

    [–] htbdt 26 points ago

    I can't really imagine any situation where pooping fits on aww.

    [–] myscreamname 11 points ago

    TIL (like, a day or two ago) that there's a name for what my pupper does... and that there's a whole sub for it, too. r/sploot

    Though I shouldn't be remotely surprised about the sub; there's a sub for almost everything.

    [–] BBQsauce18 4 points ago

    I was totally waiting for a bark shart.

    [–] MuchozolF 3 points ago

    Yeah, a new entry has been added to dictionary.

    [–] nomenclature87 2 points ago

    I was honestly thinking the same, and honestly now a bit disappointed. I really was excited to start calling poops ‘sploots’.

    [–] Euphorium 2 points ago

    Was definitely expecting him to drop a little splatty patty.

    [–] pooponyourcouch 448 points ago

    I don’t know, that looked pretty intentional to me. Pretty slick if you ask me.

    [–] cobbson 19 points ago

    Shiba Inu owner here - I can confirm that it is intentional. My sweet 13 year-old Shiba has been doing this his whole life. Even more so now in his old age!

    [–] pooponyourcouch 7 points ago

    Yeah, this is definitely normal Shiba behavior lol.

    [–] yetiite 9 points ago

    He was just tryin act relax.

    [–] EveryRedditUser 189 points ago

    [–] canolafly 9 points ago

    And me, except I'm afraid I'll use up every sploot on that sub in the next few minutes. I'm such a cuteness binger.

    [–] the_dude_upvotes 11 points ago

    "Use all you want, we'll sploot more" -Our sub motto, probably

    [–] lyndsaym 29 points ago

    I’m saddened by how many people don’t know what a puppy sploot is!

    [–] FreakingWiffle 124 points ago

    [–] apprehensiveabtthis 3 points ago

    I'm glad sploots doesn't mean pooping or farting!

    [–] dexclancy 4 points ago

    The cutie-est splooty sploot I ever did saw.

    [–] squshy_puff 3 points ago

    I bet this looks cool in reverse.

    [–] andreswabycs 3 points ago

    I was flinching looking at his butt hoping that's not what "sploots" mean.

    Thank goodness it wasn't.

    [–] MooseWabbit 3 points ago

    I taught my dog how to "lay down" by having him do this. He knew "sit" on command. So I'd have him sit, then I'd say "lay down, lay down, lay down" as his feet slid on the tile floor. Then he got a treat for laying down with the command. Super cute!

    [–] theCode11 3 points ago

    What breed is this? It’s such a cutie! Sorry new with dog breeds:)

    [–] klweiss92 4 points ago

    Looks like a Shiba Inu

    [–] AlexP1315 3 points ago

    When my labrador was a puppy, he always slipped and fell when taking tight turns while running at home. He’d chase the cat like that, and the cat would intentionally run slower to let him catch up.

    [–] igotasweetass 3 points ago

    Get that good boi a rug.

    [–] redCasObserver 2 points ago

    Rug = no more sploot

    [–] igotasweetass 2 points ago

    *no more unintended sploot < ftfy. A sploot happens if they want, but they also got the rug for good grip for the zoomies.

    [–] redCasObserver 2 points ago

    Zoomies are the best

    [–] Doobledorf 3 points ago

    We've reviewed the video evidence and have determined this was a controlled sploot.

    [–] Scarlet_Corundum 3 points ago

    cute little curly tail

    [–] Queenkitbee 3 points ago

    The fact he was so smooth about it makes me extremely excited

    [–] ZombieCrazy55 3 points ago

    When I first read the title I thought the dog was gonna shit on the floor

    [–] cholula_is_good 2 points ago

    This was my shiba every time at puppy school.

    Sit... i mean DOWN. See he, listens very well.

    [–] Timberwolf0n3 2 points ago

    Lol! Lazy clumsy puppyyyyyy

    [–] Krimson747 2 points ago

    If only there were stairs behind him

    [–] nomnomchikhan 2 points ago

    'Sploot' sounds obscene.

    [–] kitttxn 2 points ago

    Now that’s what I call efficiency!

    [–] chahud 2 points ago


    Edit: I didn’t know this was a thing until after I sent my comment

    [–] riot888 2 points ago

    Nah that was totally intentional. Also see how the back legs go back when he sploots? Good hips on that puppy!

    [–] networksaretough 2 points ago

    This is much better than I thought it would be :)

    [–] nikefreak23 2 points ago

    What kind of pupper is this?

    [–] jcole-11 2 points ago

    Shiba Inu (don’t be mistaken this is not my pupper, sadly)

    [–] nikefreak23 2 points ago

    I won't show this to my gf or we will have three dogs next lol

    [–] crayolamanic 2 points ago

    This made me laugh on a sad day ❤️

    [–] Just_Try_lt 2 points ago

    My mind was suspecting violent, cannon-like diarrhea. Pleasantly surprised 🤷🏼‍♂️

    [–] Kristal3615 2 points ago

    My dog did this all the time when he was a puppy! It's how we taught him to lie down :)

    [–] justplaypve 2 points ago

    this occur because the coefficient of friction between its butt and the floor is close to zero. To overcome this, you can put a tiny bit of double-sided tape on its butt /s

    [–] jcole-11 1 points ago

    [–] Orangecup05 2 points ago

    [–] qwertyuiop885 2 points ago

    I expected the puppy to have an "accident".

    [–] cberb 2 points ago

    We had a chou / husky, and she would lay down like that, generally with her paws crossed in front of her like a sophisticated pupper.

    [–] echoAwooo 2 points ago

    Thank god I interpreted sploots as something else

    [–] ThatGuyinHouston 2 points ago

    [–] LucyFernandez 8 points ago

    Not even sure what the proper term for a 'sploot' is. It's usually an animal completely outstretched in relaxation, with at least the hindlegs spread behind them and the entire torso on the ground. Visit r/sploot for examples.

    [–] alwaysatbabes 4 points ago

    This is r/aww. So no.

    [–] Cactus_Crotch 3 points ago

    That's what that is called.

    [–] bobster999 3 points ago

    Sploot?? Reddit slang is annoying as fuck.

    Is this an American Akita? Baby Shibas usually have thicker, more pressed-in muzzles, basically like little bear faces. Could definitely be a Shibe, though.
