State of the art high speed video and good natured soaking wet dogs shaking off. Say goodbye to the finer social graces for a few mesmerizing minutes.
You may be a cat person. Or you may be a dog person. Whichever camp you’re in, we can all agree that dogs are typically considered to be overly rambunctious compulsives that can’t stop lunging for the mail carrier, while cats are clean thoughtful creatures that sit comfortably on the couch looking socially adept.
This brings into focus one of the primary relational challenges for dog people, a group that remains gendered a bit more toward men. We’re viewed as likable but prone to socially mucking things up. Accordingly, the attitude cats hold toward dogs can sometimes creep into the way the cat people in our lives look at us. Just before we walk up and take a big metaphorical dump in the middle of their philosophical sidewalk.
But as a sensitive modern “dog person”, I can tell you this: its bloody challenging to be constantly reigning in one’s muckier side. It feels a bit inauthentic, at times. Which is probably why we dog people are suckers for a good fart joke. We just can’t help it. A day of behaving ourselves and out comes the fart joke. Or maybe just the fart. Either way, its like Old Faithful.
Which brings we to today’s VIDEO BREAK: the 100% guaranteed antidote to the finer social graces, feline or otherwise. This video is what happens when you combine amazing high speed photography and wet dogs. Good natured soaking wet dogs shaking off all that lovely water.
And its pretty obvious they don’t care who gets wet in the process. So all you dog people out there. Glory in the joy of dog-ness.
