My husband and I made the attached video about Shaming Your Dog: Teen Mom 2 Style. What can we say? We were just really inspired by Janelle's horrible mother who has her own special breed of shame.
Let's be honest, the woman could make a can of mixed vegetables feel bad about it's lot in life. That and I am hopelessly addicted to reality television, with the 16 and Pregnant and Teen Mom series being somewhere around the top of my list.
But back to the subject at hand: shaming your dog. It's all a little funny because, if you have ever owned a dog, you know that they do some things that inevitably really make you mad. But you love them anyway. Sure they rolled in some combination of dead and poop and then you had to wash them, but you love them anyway. Or, if you are my dog Oscar, you like to eat poop and then try to give really long-tongued kisses.
The best part is that while we humans can be totally mortified by our dogs' behavior, they actually feel little shame.... like the time my one dog humped the other one so hard his penis just got stuck out in the flaccid state--while we had dinner guests over.
The funniest, most ironic part of the dog shaming phenomenon is that my husband actually thinks the pictures online of people shaming their dogs with signs is really stupid. This is because he says that dogs can't read. His stance on these signs is made funnier by the fact that he is starring the in above aforementioned dog shaming video... and he wanted to play the leading role, despite the actual reality that Janelle's mother is a woman. [He believes he did her voice better.]
It just goes to show you that there are different forms of shaming that are acceptable to different people. Not all shaming will satisfy all people. Me? I could care less... shame 'em if you got 'em! That's my motto. I am all about some good old fashioned dog-shaming humor.
Happy Monday. Enjoy.
