10 Adorably Stupid Things Every Dog Does


We’re all huge animal lovers over here at Aunty Acid HQ, and by that I mean we love animals and we’ve all eaten so much cake that our waistlines are expanding quickly. Seriously though, we adore our furry friends but we have to admit that sometimes they’re not the brightest bulbs in the box. But you know what? That’s why we love them so freakin’ much! Here are NUMBER adorably stupid things all of our dogs get up to and we’re sure you’ll recognise your own pup amongst this list too!

1. Try to climb the stairs… and fail.

Oh sweetie, I’d offer to carry you but this is just too cute. Just look at those little legs go! They’re trying so hard!

2. Try to use the cat door

This isn’t so bad when you’ve got a chihuahua, but when your great dane is stuck half indoors and half out you’ve got a problem.

3. Try to use any door. At all.

Go on, just walk on through, you can do it… okay, maybe you can’t. I’ll take back your application to doggy MENSA.

4. Try to drink from the tap

No puppy, don’t do that, you’re going to get wet. And I’m going to get wet. And the entire house is going to get wet. Please don’t do that.

5. Get into a fight with the mirror

Who is this other dog in my house? Why does it look exactly like me? Why is it going everywhere I’m going?! I MUST FIGHT THIS OTHER DOG! Oh no, looks like they’re going to fight me too. Come at me bro!

6. Get into a fight with their stuffed animals

It hasn’t moved. Ever. How can you even mistake this immobile toy for another dog? Seriously, pupper, you’ve got to get a grip on your anger issues!

7. Get into a fight with this… door… thing? What even is this?

You know the thing I mean, the springy thing that goes behind doors. I don’t know why it’s there or what it’s for but I know one thing for certain – my dog has a serious love hate relationship with it. One second it’s his favourite chew toy, the next it’s his worst enemy and must be destroyed at all costs.

8. Believe their shadows are real

Well to be fair, you can’t explain what a shadow is to a dog and this dark, moving, dog-looking thing that’s following them everywhere they go must be pretty freaky to them. And it’s attached directly to their paws, how horrifying!

9. Sleep in the weirdest places

I thought it was just cats that do this, but no, dogs are just as guilty. I once found my dog fast asleep wedged between the couch cushions. I don’t know how he got himself in there but he sure looked happy.

10. Chase their tails

This one is truly the classic. It’s every dog’s favourite pastime and it is by far the silliest thing they do. Ever. I don’t know what they plan to do with their tail if they catch it and to be honest, I don’t think they have a clue either.

There we have it folks, 10 adorably stupid things that all our beloved dogs do. What stupid thing does your pup do the most? Let us know in the comments! And don’t forget to share this with all of the animal lovers you know, it’ll brighten up their day!
