Pet Shaming Volume One


(my 2.5 lb yorkie Diesel)

I recently discovered the new photo trend of dog shaming. I admit I’m not the best “pet parent” when it comes to consistent discipline.  Someone once told me a dog forgets what they did a few seconds after they did it so I always thought: what’s the point. I asked readers to submit their pets behaving badly and here’s the result after just a few hours. (P.S. I don’t discriminate against other pets.) Hehe, I kind of  think they might be shaming us:
