Just Taking A Break: 10 Weird, Yet Interesting Photos of Dogs Sitting


When I was growing up we had a dog or two and one in particular I thought was kind of strange. His name was Spotter — cleaver name for a Dalmatian, I was young when he became a part of our family. I have been told that this breed of dog is particularly smart (makes sense, they are fire dogs after all) and Spotter lived up to that theory.

I am convinced he thought he was a human (as I think most dogs assume), and he knew his birth order too. He would play rougher with my younger brother and sister because in his eyes he was the third child in the family. He seemed to abide by the idea that myself and my older brother were able to ‘boss’ him around a bit more.

Dogs have a fun personality and I think what makes them most fun is their assumption that they are human. Cats know they are cats (and they believe cats are far superior), but dogs treat themselves as a real, true member of the family. It’s totally evident by some of the things they do — like the way you may find some pups sitting around.
