Top Ten Tuesday: Here’s Your Sign, Version Dog.0

Has anyone else noticed the disturbing trend of making dogs hold signs while they have their pictures taken for Facebook or other online sites? Here are some of the best, brought to you by my sister-in-law, Phyllis. Please note, she couldn’t stop at ten, so this is a bonus week! Click on the thumbnails to see them large enough to read without your glasses. (By the way, they’re on top of your head, if you can’t find them.)

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!

  1. I must admit I found some of them pretty funny! But a lot are disturbing in that they are so mean-spirited. Especially the 9th one… The poor dog was probably quite sick after his/her misadventure and the owner thinks the dog’s accident in the car was from a lack of gratitude? Give me a break. Others are really the owner’s problem because they either didn’t train their dog properly or don’t have the sense to keep valuable things out of the dog’s reach.

  2. I find these photos disturbing because they degrade the dogs as one’s supposedly loved pet, and as creatures of Nature. They do not deserve the silly and unkind comments written on paper, as if the animals would have said them.
    Notice the sad and dumbfounded expressions on their faces, as if they would understand that they were being ridiculed by their “tormentors”!

  3. Okay, I have to say something about this. I agree with you Beth – I find this a very disturbing trend. This really pushes my buttons! I’ve seen some of these pictures and tv shows like the “Today” show have even done stories about this. Even they had to admit, “We’re not sure how many dog lovers or dog owners would find this amusing.” Some of these signs have been really cruel, and even had the dog calling itself such vile names that I can’t even repeat here. I would ask these people, “Would you publicly humiliate your child like this, for the whole world to see?” And yes, I know, some people would (there’s no accounting for taste). But I think most would say they would not. Well, to me it’s the same thing. And it doesn’t matter if the dog can’t read or isn’t even aware of what’s happening – that’s not the point. I would never do this to my child (if I had one), nor would I do this to my four-legged child Leo. Okay, I’ll get off my soapbox now! *L*
