Anyone who owns a dog will probably be able to read the face of their faithful mutt like a book. Some say dogs are able to muster facial expressions like people – pet owners know otherwise. Which is precisely why you can usually tell at a glance whether your dog has done something he knows for a fact he shouldn’t have done.
Suffice to say, the look on the French bulldog’s face in this particular clip says it all!
The clip, which took about 5 seconds to go viral, documents the moment the owner of a French bulldog discovered that her new rug had been decorated with an unwelcome embellishment. That being, her precious pet went and decided to use it as a toilet.
Unsurprisingly, the owner wasn’t particularly happy about this unexpected surprise. Nevertheless, it was clearly nigh-on impossible for her to hold a grudge, given the way in which the dog clearly felt more than a little guilty about its antics.
‘Were you a bad dog? Did you poop on the rug?’ she asks, as the dog hides behind the toilet and stares straight into the wall!
‘Are you hiding?’
The answer being yes, quite clearly!
‘Did you poop on the rug? The new rug? Did you poop on it?’
She continues, just to rub it in a little further.
It’s pretty clear by the fact that she ends up laughing at the end of the video that the owner didn’t take the whole thing too seriously. And how could she, given the look on that gorgeous dog’s face when he knew he’d been well and truly busted.
All of which just goes to show two important things. The first of which being that contrary to popular belief, most dogs know exactly what they are doing when they do something wrong. Secondly, they also know exactly how to pull the perfect face/pose at the perfect time to get away with it.
To such an extent that we could problem learn a thing or two from them ourselves! Not about pooping on rugs, perhaps, but more how silent admission of guilt sometimes goes a long way!
Nobody has yet come forward to claim ownership of the video, but the moody mutt that’s the star of the show has nonetheless become something of a phenomenon worldwide.
