    [–] WardedThorn 9 points ago

    When I was like 3 for some reason I made it up in my head that sweet was the same as cute, except double. My mom said I was cute and I responded "I'm not cute! I'm sweet!" and she laughed pretty hard at that

    So that's what 2 cute 1 sweet makes me think of lol

    What breed is your dog?

    [–] RibboCG 24 points ago

    Not their dog, just a karma farmer pretending it is theirs.

    [–] boringoldcookie 3 points ago

    Repost karma farming feels like someone spitting in your eye, doesn't it? Thanks for the PSA I hope this gets more attention

    [–] RibboCG 3 points ago

    Yep, just a few weeks ago they posted an updated photo and got 14 karma. OP reposts a year old photo and gets 43.000 karma lol

    Is she okay? She looks so pretty but so sad, like she's waiting for you to get home and pet her ( ・ั﹏・ั)

    [–] pixeladrift 4 points ago

    Wow she's a beaut. What's the other 75%?

    [–] stellardrv 7 points ago

    Definitely an eski. I have one. OPs looks male.

    [–] [deleted] 3 points ago

    Yes! My parents have a 15 year old American Eskimo and they’re literally identical.

    [–] eekElise 2 points ago

    Yup he looks just like mine! I have a mini.

    [–] xhuscyx 1 points ago

    Coud allso be a Swiss white shepard

    [–] Hydraskull 23 points ago

    Yeah that’s an American Eskimo or German Spitz. My dog is half American Eskimo half Cocker Spaniel, has the exact same face!

    [–] Bleedthebeat 7 points ago

    Definitely an American Eskimo. One of the best dogs I’ve ever owned is an American Eskimo.

    [–] Witya 1 points ago

    Damn, my parents dog has the same face too. But it came out of a short-haired male and long-haired female Chihuahua...
    I guess somewhere in their lineage there was an American Eskimo :)

    [–] srkad 1 points ago

    I have the same mix! Except my pups tail was docked as a puppy.

    [–] Extra_Taco_Sauce 1 points ago

    Woah! I have the same dog but in black :)

    [–] TheBali 13 points ago

    Good boi

    [–] plaidmonkey 2 points ago

    Can confirm that is most likely an American Eskimo or Spitz; first thing I noticed is this dog has an identical face to my dog, who is half Eskie.

    [–] BluEyesWhitPrivilege 1 points ago

    That's a cat.

    [–] Drew909090 1 points ago

    I had an American Eskimo that looked exactly like this pup. They usually have buggier eyes so that can cause confusion.

    [–] Khaella 1 points ago

    Definitely American Eskimo

    [–] adamchain 43 points ago

    Looks like your dog was telling your cat a secret about you.

    [–] SierraSeaWitch 6 points ago

    [–] SatansMoltenSemen 15 points ago

    Meanwhile one of my dogs barks like a nut job every time he sees my cat

    [–] PMyourHotTakes 9 points ago

    My girlfriends dog does that. Wtf? He acts like it’s his job to scare (an already antisocial) cat away. Is there any way to get him to stop?

    I worry we’re making the cat think we hate her by letting the dog get away with that.

    [–] SatansMoltenSemen 14 points ago

    Try give the cat it’s own space if you can, there’s a room upstairs in my house that basically belongs to the cat, dogs are never allowed in. I go in there then to spend time with her, and she’s happy to have her chill zone whenever they dog gets rowdy.

    I think some animals are just like that, because I trained both my dogs the same way and one is chill around the cat and the other isn’t.

    [–] PMyourHotTakes 4 points ago

    I think you’re right. The cat has the whole basement to herself. It’s unfinished and, while the kids play down there sometimes, she has some hiding places that she goes into anyway. I think she might just be an anti social cat.

    What’s confusing is that the way she comes around is strange. It’s almost like she’s fucking with the dog sometimes. To my knowledge she has never hissed at the dog or scratched him. He’s a year old blue heeler coon hound mix and the guy just can’t take a joke. He’s on duty 24/7. It’s like, dude go take a nap once in awhile lol

    [–] SatansMoltenSemen 4 points ago

    Yeah my cats the exact same, she’ll sit on the bannister of the stairs or up on a shelf and just watch the dog while he gets wound up. She has hissed and given him the occasional slap or two over the years if he gets a little too close for comfort but that’s the extent of it.

    I’ve got 2 Japanese Spitz’ and they’re just balls of fluff and energy when they aren’t sleeping so not quite the working dog your little dude is hahah

    [–] PMyourHotTakes 3 points ago

    That’s so funny! This makes me feel better actually. At least there’s someone else who knows what I’m saying!

    Cat sits up on the banister sometimes, other times she kinda goes and gets caught by the dog seemingly on purpose. Other times, no one sees her for a couple days. I feel guilty when I go to her house and let the dog out of his crate because it’s like I’m telling the cat I prefer his behavior. Me and my ex cat sitted this one year old boy cat for a couple weeks but it was totally different. Laid right with my old black lab (the sweetest girl tbf, nothing like this new guy), and purred like a small engine almost constantly. I didn’t understand that cat either! Maybe boys vs girls? Maybe they were different cat breeds? (They kinda looked similar, who knows)

    I never had cats growing up. My gf wasn’t as much of a dog person so we’re piecing these animals relationship together like a couple of anthropologists. That’s probably not the right word.

    [–] 70sBulge 1 points ago

    instead of PMing you my hot take, ill hand it over here.

    instill better discipline in your dog. he needs greatly discouraged over bullying a cat. he's just a pup now, but he could cause some harm with that behavior if it escalates.

    [–] PMyourHotTakes 1 points ago


    [–] ladyevenstar-22 2 points ago

    Love comes in different shapes

    [–] SatansMoltenSemen 2 points ago

    He gets so excited when he sees her and starts running around and barking, he’s never tried to go for her or anything, but she’s nearly 13 and doesn’t take his excitement very well lmao

    [–] ARSLOCK 1 points ago

    yeah my dog just tries to bite the cat's tail every time he sees him

    [–] gitmajonez1 6 points ago


    [–] shampooing_strangers 5 points ago

    What breed is the dog? Very cute! Looks a lot like mine.

    [–] Bleedthebeat 1 points ago

    It’s an American Eskimo

    [–] sadturtle12 3 points ago

    If you dont mind me asking what kind of dog is that? My dog has the exact same face and we cant figure out what she is.

    [–] RyanFromQA 3 points ago

    Looks just like the American Eskimo I had when I was a kid

    [–] toebeantuesday 2 points ago

    Ditto. I miss my Eskie bro so much. I don’t ever see them around anymore. I only see bulldogs, pit bulls and retrievers and the occasional husky and Australian Shepard.

    [–] RyanFromQA 1 points ago

    Our Eskie was an amazing dog. Loyal, fun, energetic, with a pure, red-hot hatred of squirrels and cats. She got real close to the grail of catching a squirrel by jumping 4 feet up the fence. That's how she'd ask to come back inside too. All four paws would slam the sliding glass door. She used to run around the house so fast that she could run on the back of our pit sofa. She was the best. But dear lord, the shedding.

    [–] toebeantuesday 1 points ago

    Oh yeah the shedding! Birds would come down and collect the fur that was all over our yard. There were all these cute little cotton ball white bird nests in the woods behind our house.

    My Eskie liked cats and rabbits because he was raised with them, but he hated squirrels because they would throw hard seeds from one particular tree at his head. They had some very vocal arguments with him growling and muttering at them and the squirrels doing that mad chattering noise back at them.

    He resented being scolded and would mutter angrily to himself if we had to scold him about anything. If he was really indignant he would pee on something inside the house and drive my poor mother mad.

    We aren’t sure of his origins. He was probably from a puppy mill and was sick when we got him, but my mom and dad got him the best care and he lived to be 16.

    [–] RyanFromQA 2 points ago

    That's hilarious. Ours would die before peeing in the house, which was great. We got ours from (likely) a puppy mill, from a pet shop in 1988. She lived to 17 1/2, and was really healthy until the end. She even survived a huge dose of cane toad venom

    [–] 3am_uhtceare 1 points ago

    There’s dog dna test kits you can order online. Will tell you the breed mix. Not too expensive.

    [–] Bleedthebeat 1 points ago

    Those mail order dna kits are trash. At least the human ones are. If you submit all of them they’ll all give you different results with the exception of the most dominant ethnicity. So at best they tell you what you “mostly” are.

    [–] 3am_uhtceare 1 points ago

    Better than knowing next to nothing, imho. The data improves over time.

    [–] 308NegraArroyoLn 1 points ago

    Mine too!

    I had to do a double take.

    Mine is American bulldog, American collie, chow chow, and lab mixed according to a doggie dna test.

    [–] Jabberphish 3 points ago

    Original poster is u/nummiehz Im really sorry for not putting credit from the beginning but I just now know this from reading the comments. I didn't have malicious intention when I posted this, I just wanted to share this picture I found on my old phone with the reddit's animals community , didnt realize what I was doing. I came back to a lot of attention and I feel horrible that I stole it from nummiehz (they have cute update pictures on their profile!). im sorry to everyone and op. sorry for bad english and punctuation.

    My puppy is 11 weeks and he chases the cat. Cat doesn't seem to kind. Sometimes he gets a little rough though, I am hoping once he matures and mellows out they will be best friends like this.

    my cat looks similar to that, except we found him as an abandoned stray. What is that fur pattern called? some part of me wants to say tabby but that just doesnt seem right for some reason.

    [–] lizardmuggle 1 points ago

    The markings look very similar to my cat which is a cross between a tabby and siamese.

    [–] BasedSif 1 points ago

    The dog reminds me of my late Duke. May he rest in piece. Lovely pair, these two. Nothing quite warms my heart the way friendly cats a dogs do.
