Listen, dogs are the best thing to ever happen to mankind, full stop. In no way do humans, with all the awful stuff we do, deserve dogs. And yet, the luckiest among us have these beautiful, kind creatures literally living in our home and are constantly rewarded with their unconditional love.
But as great as they are, sometimes dogs try to do standard dog things — like catching tennis balls, or zooming down the hall when they get a sudden burst of energy — and just completely blank. They stare straight ahead as a tennis ball hits them in the nose, or stop mid-zoom and begin to contemplate the mysteries of the universe.
And when dog owners are really lucky, they're able to snap a picture of these doggy brain-farts that make other people watching ask, "what's wrong with your dog?" Here, then, is a collection of photos of dogs who, hilariously, simply forgot how to dog.
Did they do that... all day?
