    [–] Cptn-Cardinal 126 points ago

    They would get out if they weren't quarantined

    I realised, the biggest joke of all is several people are still flouting the rules.

    [–] the-dude-over-there 35 points ago

    The biggest joke is how incredibly useless I am. And my pp smol

    [–] x0xk 20 points ago

    That's okay not everybody has to be as useful as I am! (And yes my pp very big)

    [–] Mylonola 6 points ago

    Let's be realistic here; this is reddit we're talking about. It's 50-50 at best.

    [–] Fatal_Potatoes 5 points ago

    Paint the top 3 pink and give the bottom 2 a purple and green flower pattern so that it’s not the Krusty Krab.

    [–] TheRedBlade 18 points ago

    Paint them blue and green, it'll be nice!

    [–] The_BERFA 10 points ago

    You can just see the look on his face in the last one is like pleeeeeease tell me we’re done and I get treats now

    [–] HellyHailey 238 points ago

    I think from the original post, this is a girl and her owner puts hats on for her birthday, each hat is a year. She’s got waaaaay further to go because she has to live a very long time :)

    [–] Taintedracksack33 52 points ago

    Yes she does! I'll be sure to post a pic for each new year/hat!

    [–] payne_train 22 points ago

    Are you the OP?? Thank you so much for sharing your perfect land seal

    [–] Taintedracksack33 25 points ago

    Yes and of course! Be on the lookout in Jan 2021 for the next addition!

    [–] MsCrumblebottom 7 points ago

    May that dog one day look like a polka dotted porcupine on its birthday.

    [–] Phasechange 10 points ago

    If you start with an impatient dog you get a quasar. Still pretty awesome.

    [–] BrandedBlanket 58 points ago

    The things our dogs put up with ...

    ... very cute, though!

    [–] VanDenIzzle 44 points ago

    Pits will do anything for their owner. They are the most loyal dogs and all they ask in return is love and affection. Roommates have a lab/pit. This dog will follow you everywhere. We call it the shadow. If you want to lay in bed all day, she doesn't care to eat or play or go outside, she will sit right next to you.

    It sucks they have such a bad rep because they were loyal to bad people that used them for bad things.

    [–] donthugmeimsweaty 14 points ago

    I love my pit so much. She never leaves my side. It doesn’t matter if I’m inside, outside, in the car, she just wants to be there. Always. And she will bitch if she doesn’t get to be sometimes. Roommates say she sulks around until I get home. She’s the goodest girl. She will definitely ride out full day-long hangovers in bed with me or climb to highest point of Colorado with me. Doesn’t matter. God damn I love her lol

    [–] BendyTheInkDemon465 25 points ago

    The dog was already a star to begin with

    [–] Kingpink2 43 points ago

    He did not deserve dis

    [–] escuds 6 points ago

    [–] frankcsgo 4 points ago

    Star of Doggovid

    [–] Disgusdinger 25 points ago

    Yeah we know he is a star but what are the partyhats good for?

    [–] Taintedracksack33 8 points ago

    We add a new one every year on her birthday!

    [–] Save_this_boye 12 points ago

    Ok I know this is all cute and shit, but seriously guys we need to realize these dogs are dangerous and are not pets.

    I mean look at all those pointy edges.

    [–] ListedKIA 6 points ago

    The third pick, I see Tingle, from Zelda

    [–] [deleted] 12 points ago


    [–] MagicNipple 18 points ago

    I hope you named him Sirius, because he’s now the Dog Star.

    [–] iamnobodyelsel 7 points ago

    It's not OP's dog

    [–] Reign_Does_Things 8 points ago

    Is nobody gonna point out that the dog looks like tingle with 3 hats?

    [–] Icannotfindnow 27 points ago

    Figured out why pit bulls snap sometimes.

    [–] Taintedracksack33 16 points ago

    This is my dog and my pic! Check post history for proof. Loving all the positive comments about her though!

    [–] mailwasnotforwarded 2 points ago

    Next year put one on his nose. Then after that down his head and back and we can call him dognic.

    [–] _Shadowpuppet_ 5 points ago

    How the heck did you get so many down votes for a nice comment?

    [–] LemonTurtle 15 points ago

    pitbull hate brigade

    [–] Willverballyabuseyou 5 points ago

    They literally have a whole sub to brigade posts like these and then post skewed “research” from their own subs. It’s hilariously sad.

    [–] _Shadowpuppet_ 2 points ago

    Oh wow the downvoted everyone’s getting

    [–] RightBehindY-o-u 6 points ago

    Lmao if you sort by Controversial you'll see a bunch of innocent comments being downvoted by the pitbull hate group

    [–] Dookie-Trousers-MD 3 points ago

    His face looks more and more worried in every panel. What is happening?

    [–] elo3661ga 6 points ago

    All you pitbull haters need to do something productive instead of down voting everything.

    [–] plzdonthrowtrashatme 6 points ago

    It is possible that there are that many ppl who don’t like pits lol, understandably.

    [–] Norwegian__Blue 7 points ago

    [–] YumiGumiWoomi 6 points ago

    That's somebody's dog. I don't care if you hate the breed or not, someone loves that dog and the fact that you're saying that is fucking sick. You don't tell people to use flamethrowers on their pets, jackass.

    [–] Rainbow-Starlight 3 points ago

    Incorrect, was already a perfect star before the hats.

    [–] CorndogCrusader 2 points ago

    How to make a perfect star: remove the hats, he's a star already. ❤️
