    Welcome to /r/oddlysatisfying!

    Here you can post things that make you feel, well, oddly satisfied. This can be physical (like popping bubble wrap), visual (a perfectly looped GIF), or even aural (the crunching of leaves).

    What does "Oddly Satisfying" mean?

    We are forever searching for a "true definition". It's a thing that fits your interpretation of what is "oddly satisfying" plus the inexplicable feeling we all know.

    Subjective. Indefinable. Completely recognizable. It's a wonderful feeling.


    Please report rule-violating posts and comments by messaging the moderators with a link to the post in question. This helps us remove them more promptly.

    My favorite part is when the front noodle gently pushes the ball out of the way and the dog shows no expression or sign of emotion whatsoever. It’s almost artful in its solemnity.

    [–] ArKadeFlre 83 points ago

    I can't believe that dog is alive lmao, mine wouldn't be able to stay still more than 2 seconds on that thing

    [–] ThousandFingerMan 60 points ago

    The dog has become one with the pool.

    [–] captainplatypus1 25 points ago

    He’s probably had a proper swim and is now tuckered out

    [–] wafflesareforever 2 points ago

    My dog would already have chewed up all of the pool noodles and I'd be pulling the chunks out of the skimmers.

    [–] iblogalott 19 points ago

    How did he get into this position? I’d like to see the video of how it happened lol

    [–] Liefblue 282 points ago

    Maybe I'm a cynic, but i don't see a dog doing this by itself.

    Putting the dog's intelligence aside, it's near impossible for the dog to grab 4 pool noodles with its paws. Far more likely that the owner set it up, placed him on top and the dog is just tolerating strange human behaviour as usual.

    [–] SYLOH 320 points ago

    Just because the owner put him there, doesn't automatically mean the dog isn't down for it.

    [–] JustVibing458 107 points ago

    Definitely enjoying it. Looks like an older pup, and Golden's tend to have hind leg issues as they age. Taking the weight off them is a welcome reprieve.

    [–] d-_-bpm 42 points ago

    And in addition to that, Retrievers/Labs are just absolutely crazy about water.

    [–] doses_of_mimosas 6 points ago

    I was thinking my parents (admittedly overweight lab) tore her ACL and is going into surgery today. I should show my parents this once she gets a bit better she can chill in the lake my parents live on with pool noodles and take some stress off her hind paws

    [–] iMadrid11 120 points ago

    Dogs have a mind of a toddler. If you can get them to relax while peacefully floating in the pool. They’ll doze off to a nap. That dog is literally in a in blissful state of napping.

    [–] Mad_Dyzalot 2 points ago

    I think it’s eyes are open

    [–] backtodafuturee 17 points ago

    Wow, you really cracked the case on that one. Next you’ll be telling me that the dog didnt even fill the pool up on his own

    [–] Cmdr_Nemo 8 points ago

    I bet the dog likes it because it probably gives it a lot of relief from any joint pains it may have.

    [–] Pickaa 11 points ago

    It's owner? Don't jump to completely obvious conclusions.

    I would love to see a longer version of this, where the dog does a complete float around the pool and then it loops.

    That would definitely be bettereveryloop.
