A trend was started when Reddit user JavaReallySucks posted a photo of his adorable dog with the title, "Dog before and after being called a good boy."
Obviously, pet owners everywhere were inspired to do the same. Luckily, Bored Panda compiled them all into one place.
Pets of all kinds definitely have some very different reactions to being praised. Get your "Squee!" muscles ready.
The TrendsetterThis was the first photo posted, the one that set off the Internet. And oh my gosh, it's a good one.
Happy Cat"Ha! I'm a good boy? Wait til you see what I did to your carpet."
Smiles All AroundThis cutie pie's smile is totally infectious with those crooked teeth and that just-drank-water drool!
Who, me?"Look at me. Look how good I am." "Good boy." "That's right. I am."
Not Falling For ItSomething tells me this cat always looks like this. Because cats are evil and will never be entertained by your antics.
Yeah OKExhibit B in the argument for cats being evil creatures who won't succumb to the whimsies of their foolish human "owners."
Tongue OutWhat a lady's man! Can't get over that smize and that tongue!
Ruffled FeathersIs this normal?! What does this mean? Is it good? What are birds?!
No ChangeThis cat couldn't care less what comes out of your mouth. Where's her food?
Total HamHammie is a total ham, but that's OK because... Well, just look at him.
Happy PupThis spunky pup is pretty cheerful round the clock. It's amazing his smile could get any bigger!
Turtle LoveThis guy knows what's up. Now get him a pizza. Turtles love pizza*. *All of my very accurate turtle knowledge comes from TMNT.
Stahp ItIt doesn't get much cuter than this, folks. The only two things that could possibly make this more adorable are:
- More dogs
- More blankets
