Dogs have been man's best friend ever since a poem in the New York Literary Journal coined the term back in 1821, but they're best friend in title only and tired of being treated like second class mammals.
The way dogs see it if they can do what humans do then their ranking in the mammalian pecking order is guaranteed to go up. However, dogs acting like humans may sound like fun, but as these images will show it could mean the beginning of the end for both felines and mankind!
It all started back in those black and white toned days of yore, when some lazy nanny decided to let the family dog take over for the afternoon
Dogs soon discovered that if they could perform those menial tasks that humans hate they'd soon be offered a job
Jobs would lead to social status and an income, and humans would begin to entrust them with more responsibility in society
So dogs taught themselves how to drive to work every morning just like a human
Dogs usually like to work outdoors, but fitting in means taking whatever job comes your way
Although some dogs retain their mighty lofty dreams despite their lowly social status
Those with more realistic goals applied for Canine College Funds and got a good education
Where they learned that in order to better fit in they would have to look like humans in both dress and attitude
Some donned a more fashionable look than others
Most dogs tried to make sure the outfit they wore matched the job they'd been assigned
But those who started dressing for comfort discovered that working hard isn't all it's cracked up to be, and nothing beats lounging comfortably on the couch
Those who didn't turn into lazy lumps kept working hard for the money, doing everything from cooking
To laying concrete like canine construction bosses
And they discovered that working like a human is really hard work, and really tiring!
When the weekend rolled around those hard working canines kept up the ruse by dressing for leisure time activities
And having fun in the sun like their humans do
Most dogs enjoyed the clothing lines that went along with the leisure life, and didn't try to reel in their flair for fashion
However, wearing clothes doesn't come naturally to canines, and when it's time to unwind most still preferred going au naturale, which kept them from fully fitting in with their human masters
Canine naturalists tried to teach their bare fur ways to the younger generation, who didn't seem very happy with the whole idea of hound nudism
And like the rebellious youngsters they are the new generation began using fashion to express their carefree attitudes
If it wasn't for these rebellious pups, and the canine naturalist movement, dogs might have been able to slip right in to human society
They would have walked among us virtually unnoticed
And before we could say "woof" we humans would have been enslaved by our canine overlords
Do yourself, and the human world, a favor and treat your dog like a dog- love them, brush them, feed them, play fetch with them and take them for walks. But whatever you do don't get lazy and let them do your work for you, or we're all doomed!
