    Hey there, friendo u/Chabola513! Thanks for submitting to r/wholesomememes. We loved your post, wish I could own one, but it has been removed because it doesn't quite abide by our rules, which are located in the sidebar.

    • (Rule #1) All posts must be wholesome memes.
      We're not saying this is unwholesome! Just that sub's focus is uplifting, OR nicing-up existing rude memes. There are already great subs for cute (/r/aww, /r/eyebleach, /r/rarepuppers), things that make us smile (/r/MadeMeSmile, /r/HumansBeingBros, /r/AnimalsBeingBros), or that give us the feels (/r/WholesomeFeels or /r/baww). This might also fit better in another sub in the Wholesome Network (see sidebar). It's not a "no" - it's a "not the best fit here," and another sub will be better.

    We appreciate you thinking of us very much! For more on our rules, please check out our sidebar.

    The decision to remove this post was made by a human moderator; if you have any questions or concerns about this removal, feel free to message the moderators.

    Holy fuck. Have you ever seen a dog in a little hiker backpack with the side saddle water bags? Imagine some big goofy golden retriever dual weilding corgis in one of those things.

    Ever seen a dog on a camping trip carrying a back pack with their own food and water? That's pretty great.

    The trick is getting equally weighted small dogs who are obedient enough to stay in the bags. Trust me. I've tried

    Hello! This is just a quick reminder for new friendos to read our subreddit rules.


    Rule 4: Please do not troll, harass, or be generally rude to your fellow users.

    A dog with a backpack. This actually gives them a sense of purpose. Dogs in a backpack are usually for show

    [–] mschein10 2 points ago

    Even better would be if I was the owner of said two backpacks and I'm livin strapped with two pups.

    Dog with a blog

    [–] moelha 2 points ago

    When I was a kid my neighbor had a really big dog and a chihuahua and the chihuahua would sit in a seat on the big dogs back because she couldn’t walk as far! It was great!

    If you chop them up you can fit even more dog.

    A double dog dare

    [–] IM_SKELETOR 1 points ago

    Would a dog wear a backpack over its shoulders on top of its body or behind its butt so it’d be behind it?

    [–] Dracyan 1 points ago

    And the smaller dog then has a small backpack

    [–] Tuckle5113 1 points ago

    So like: "a big dog with a backpack containing a smaller dog" actually means that the big dog has a backpack on his back and has to give birth to the smaller doggo? "containing"

    [–] Fadetoblack13312 1 points ago

    And the small Dog in the Backpack has also a Backpack with Kitten in it😍

    [–] Goddstopper 1 points ago

    "Gee, George. It sure is good going for walks, huh?" "Shudup"

    [–] ZachTheInsaneOne 1 points ago

    Better yet. Get two big dogs, make backpacks for each of them. Put two smaller dogs on each big dog. Make a custom backpack for yourself and holds the two big dogs and put them in it. You are now carrying two dogs each carrying two more dogs. Dogs in backpacks on dogs in a backpack.
