This is why we can't have nice things

Have you heard of dog shaming? Consider this my submission.

I came home the other day to find this. There are no words. Moby, my sweet puppy, went bananas while I was gone for 2 hours. He must have had some idea that he was in trouble, because he sat there and let me take pictures. And whimpered softly.

Hi, I'm Moby. I'm a German Shorthair Pointer.

My humans put this really nice fluffy bed in my crate. 
For two months, I did not abuse the privilege.

Then the smoke alarm went off while my humans were out.

I freaked out a little.

Now I want to have a contest to see who can create the funniest internet meme. Like this one. Or this one. Or this one. Submit your caption in a comment or email, and I'll make the funniest ones and post them back here. 

In other news, Little One moved today! Like, I could actually feel it. Actually, I can feel it. It hasn't stopped moving. Apparently all it needed was a pep talk from Dad-to-be last night, when he told it that he knows it's nice to be lazy on a cushy waterbed-bladder, but it would really make my day if he/she put the moves on. It definitely has made my day. More on this when my 20 week post (can you believe it??) is up tomorrow or Monday.


  1. My dog used to do that all the time! I stop buying him beds after a while. I felt bad that he didn't have a soft spot during the day, but really he brought it upon himself.

    1. I never put mats in with puppies, but we thought since Moby will be 2 in August, we could test it out with an old, smaller mat. It worked out great for a while. If I find a really great deal on one, maybe we could try it again in 6 months! Most days they seem totally content in their "den." They live in our living room in a cozy air-conditioned house with fresh water and Nylabones... I think their quality of life is just fine! :)
