People often say that we don’t deserve dogs, but I’m not sure we fully appreciate just how true that is.

When I look around at the world right now or listen to the news, I will legitimately often have the thought “I’m really glad dogs don’t understand what we’re up to.” If they did, they’d be appalled. They’re far too loving and perfect to tolerate the depths of human nonsense.

On the other hand, their love is so unconditional that perhaps they’d still be there for us even if they knew the depths of our dumb.

Either way, I sure am glad dogs are around. Here are some memes about ’em.

Hello from the other side.

11. So sweet

Not quite a chocolate lab, but I’ll take it.

Why have you betrayed me so?

But…but we look so much alike!

Psh. He’s got a hot tub, what’s he complaining about?

We may not deserve dogs, but their presence in our lives in one injustice I’m perfectly content to keep around.
