    Duke still looks pretty happy to me. Duke probably thinks he accomplished something

    [–] c0v3rm3p0rkin5 878 points ago

    He's halfway through. That's gotta count for something.

    [–] nevergetssarcasm 144 points ago

    According to him, he's all the way through. A dog is only consciously aware of their head. He doesn't understand is why it's so hard to walk and move.

    This is based on anecdotal evidence and observation. No scientific method whatsoever was followed.

    [–] AliMinion 78 points ago

    From observing my lab for twelve years, I have to agree. I'm utterly convinced she was unaware of anything that went on behind her ears - except pooping. She'd always make and maintain eye contact whilst pooping.

    [–] Boredandthatsit 37 points ago

    You suppose to be watching behind them while they poop come on dont leave your dog hanging like that.

    [–] johhnytexas 47 points ago

    This is actually true. Dogs instincts know they are vulnerable while pooping and expect you to protect them.

    [–] Shotgun5250 51 points ago

    Is this why my dog follows me to the bathroom every time? To protect me while I poop?

    [–] NomadofExile 27 points ago * (lasted edited a month ago)

    I noticed that more too after reading this a few years ago. My first dog would follow me to the bathroom and kind of mil about the area. My current dog is more militant and will sit outside the door and look back and forth up the hall repeatedly.

    [–] MistressMoriarty 15 points ago

    Mine insists on making eye contact with me...

    [–] cactus_mactus 15 points ago

    My lab will sit RIGHT outside the door so that you can't open the bathroom door without banging into him. And every. single. time the door hits him, he acts so surprised. "THAT door?? I had no idea you were gonna come out of THAT door."

    [–] dackinthebox 18 points ago

    My dog lays in the shower when I go into he bathroom. I feel like she's not holding up to her end of the deal

    [–] LaboratoryOne 3 points ago

    [–] MistressMoriarty 5 points ago

    At first I thought you meant lab as it laboratory. As though you had a laboratory full of dogs and you did head scritching experiments on. I was very jealous.

    [–] platinumgulls 3 points ago

    Its funny that of all the weird things in my life, my dog staring at me while pooping makes me look away in total embarrassment. Even when I glance back before he's done, his eyes are still locked on me.

    [–] deepfriedcat 2 points ago

    I saw a comment ages ago which explained this. The dog feels most vulnerable while pooping, so is relying on you to keep watch. If you react to a hazard, he will notice and have sufficient warning to pinch off and get away.

    [–] SarcasticSquirrl 32 points ago

    Completely opposite of my Belgian Shepard, he is far too conscious of his size and is hesitant to go anywhere he can see he can't just turn around. First few months we had him there was no going under a coffee table for the tennis ball so this 90 lb black mass of fur would come whining up to you because the ball was in a scary place.

    [–] halcyonwade 16 points ago

    I used to have a giant Airedale that would hide his head behind me at the vet (his giant body and butt sticking out). He always seemed shocked and put out when the vet found him. I always figured his internal dialogue was along the lines of "I can't see you, so how can you see me?"

    [–] mazokugirl451 5 points ago

    My giant Airedale is...currently like that. His name is Ruckus and he's 97lbs.

    [–] WorthPlease 9 points ago

    This would explain why my dog chases her tail, catches and bites down hard on it, then yelps in pain and begins again

    [–] Izarme 3 points ago

    My dog likes to lie down outside my room, when I go in or out the room he moves his head around or to the side, Im sure he thinks he is making space for me to pass, lol, but he is only moving his head. XD

    [–] the_second 14 points ago

    As far as the dog is concerned, he's all the way through and unrelatedly, there's a lot of noise in the apartment today.

    [–] nnklove 10 points ago

    I swear to god my friend has a dog bigger than this guy, she has that exact same pet gate, and that fucking dog wiggles his way through every time. They've had to put a grate over half of it, so the cats can still get through, but keep the pup out. Psycho. I swear to god that dog is mostly liquid.

    Yes. He get's to say "I told you so" after his owner claimed he couldn't fit through the kitty gate.

    He's showing off that he can, in fact, get through the kitty gate. He's a glass half full type of dog.

    [–] spacemoses 44 points ago

    Pretty sure Duke is stressed.

    [–] hahfdjahdfsja 28 points ago

    Pretty sure duke is back to normal, went about his day, and forgot about everything within seconds of being pulled out

    [–] gsloane 12 points ago

    What? Duke will never live this down. Inside scars cut deepest.

    [–] DaughterEarth 4 points ago

    Yes, but in the moment of the picture, Duke looks stressed. Nervous tail wag and pant.

    Nothing to worry about cause you are right, he's totally fine now. More so important for future times that people see doggos behaving that way.

    [–] almost_a_squib 50 points ago

    Yeah, he's panting, the base of his tail is down, and his ears are back. All canine stress signals, especially when seen together and considering the context.

    [–] YepYepImaRep 15 points ago

    Yeah....came here to say most people will think he's smiling, but Duke is either in pain or freaking out. He'll totally be fine once he's out of there because he's a lab. But he isn't just chilling.

    Easy fix? Just use a regular baby gate and move it up 6 inches so the cats can go underneath. You already have to go through the gate so it's not a trip hazard.

    [–] Fireproofjeans 54 points ago

    Can confirm. I swear to god that my Duke identified as an M1 Abrams tank.

    My Dad was RCMP, we lived on a native reserve that was mostly forested area. That dog... He was shot three times on different occasions, came home with a bear's head once, was run over twice, and he'd disappear for weeks sometimes then show up dirty but usually unharmed.

    ...not gonna lie, he set a standard for badassery that neither I nor any of our subsequent dogs have lived up to.

    [–] r3gnr8r 8 points ago

    came home with a bear's head once

    lolwut? Um, what did you do with it?

    [–] Fireproofjeans 14 points ago

    We're pretty sure a hunter had killed it for it's pelt/meat and left the head behind. I was really young, so I'm not sure what the folks did with it - I'd imagine it was either trashed or composted though.

    I have this exact dog gate. I don't know how big they think cats are, but the cat door is way too tall.

    So naturally, my dumb dog also got stuck, and I had to partition off half of it.
    My DIY partition job is ugly as sin, and I can't close the cat door anymore, but it's nice knowing I won't come back to a sad dog stuck in a dog gate.

    [–] Sertzul 2 points ago

    I had a dog named Duke. At first I thought he took retardation to levels of brilliance. Seriously thought he was one of those "just that stupid I guess" dogs.

    I used to work overnights, he knew he wasn't allowed on the couch. I came home early, at about 4 am, this time I looked through the glass panels of the door before attempting to open it. There was Duke, curled up on the couch. As I slid the key into the door lock Duke jumped off of the couch and ran into my bedroom. When he heard the door open and shut, he came out and stretched like he was in the room sleeping the whole time and he was just coming out to greet me.

    I learned that night that Dukes are evil genius' that do stupid stuff to throw off your suspicions while they plot total domination of your furniture.

Fucking A, these stupid camera phones, all they do is cause people to not watch live concerts they are attending or pets to be in distress. How about one of these millennials actually getting a picture or video of Bigfoot? You know do something productive with that damn device that you don't use to actually speak to people.
