There is a lot of dog humor out there. Does your dog make you laugh? Does he ever do something that is just too funny and you wish you captured it on video or in a photo?
We disagree with anyone who says that pets do not have their own personalities. They want your attention, they want to be included in whatever it is you are doing, and they work at outsmarting you to get what they want. It has been reported that some of them are at least as smart as a 5-to-6-year-old child (and we know some of you will debate that and say they are smarter than your boss…)
Anyone with “multiple pet syndrome” will be able to relate to this cartoon! This image has been shared around and is a good one to use to generate laughs among pet owner clients and customers. For example, if you are selling beds and mattresses, you can point out the need for a king-size bed in homes that have pets because everyone will want to sleep there at the same time.
Thanks to the internet and social sharing sites like Pinterest, YouTube, and Facebook, you can easily find examples of humor with dogs. Here is a popular humor image shared by Haute or Not Pets on a Facebook page:
