Dogs are the best.
Just take a minute and think about dogs. Big dogs. Little dogs. Dogs with floppy ears and dogs with squishy noses. Long-haired dogs. Dogs with dreads. Dogs with no hair. Dogs who carry their own leash when they go for a walk. Dogs who bring you a stick to throw but then won't let you have the stick because it belongs to them. Smart dogs with jobs and dumb dogs who chase their tail and get surprised when they catch it.
It doesn't matter what a dog does: all dogs are good. It's just science.
But some dogs are good in specific ways that you could never predict. Even after thousands of years of dogs and humans cohabitating, dogs continue to find ways to surprise us. Everyone who owns a dog knows the special things that make their dog weird and extra good.
Here are some of the weirdest, but ultimately endearing things people's dogs do.
A tweet this week kicked off people sharing their dogs' weirdest moments.
Dogs being weird.. let’s make it a thread https://t.co/cHEQez4WqP— cody mcgee (@cody mcgee)1556313387.0
Most dogs just gobble up their treats right away.
@CodyMcDaddy @SlickBack_C Jackson likes to hunt for his prey. 😂 https://t.co/jX4TrRHUvL— 👁 (@👁)1556631163.0
This dog is hoping someone will see how good he is at being a statue and sculpt him.That's my take, at least.
Wait for it...

He just wants to be comfortable.
@CodyMcDaddy He has to fluff his bed before laying down 🙄 https://t.co/vVZXelkAsD— rachy rach 🍭 (@rachy rach 🍭)1556477678.0

This story of an oatmeal thief will make you wonder if dogs are smarter than we give them credit for.
My wiener dog is the type of dog to eat to the point of death. She once broke into our cabinet and tore open the oatmeal packet box. We found one oatmeal packet that she had eaten, but we were perplexed at the missing 15 or so.
Day by day, we would find an oatmeal packet in a peculiar hiding spot, one by one.
We never found them all. They're either still hiding, or Daisy got them without us noticing.
It cracks me up to imagine a wiener dog creeping around, carefully placing oatmeal packets in different places, carrying a pile with her. -emilyc2141
Gracie, you are doing it exactly right.
@CodyMcDaddy @showupforthis We taught Gracie to bring us a toy when she’s excited so she doesn’t nip at us. This is… https://t.co/QUEFn3d3kf— Oh. (@Oh.)1556590795.0

He likes slides!This dog is perfect. He even carried his stick with him.
Was this dog a cat?
My dearly departed Siberian would love to "perch" to survey his territory. This involved being in the highest place possible. His favourite place to lie around or sleep was on top of the refrigerator usually. It took me a while to lock everything down but I eventually had it set up so he's not knock everything over. He was very lanky so I'd have to be careful not to trap his legs or tail in the freezer.
This was probably a negative trait for a dog to have but it was just too adorable to go grab a beer and get my forehead licked at the same time. -ArtisanalCollabo

Does this dog just like to hear the echo of their own bark?

Everyone knows the leg bridge is the most comfortable spot!
@CodyMcDaddy Don’t know how this is comfortable https://t.co/gpAJxZlV7P— Nico Jayson (@Nico Jayson)1556549541.0
Being a bridge is also comfy.
@CodyMcDaddy Feller looks...comfy? https://t.co/sQMLdYVfsM— KML (@KML)1556554328.0
They both look guilty.
