Learn about our Editorial Process Updated on 07/26/19 The internet is practically synonymous with the cat GIFs and memes in constant circulation on our social media feeds. While no one can deny the joys of famous internet cats, we have a special spot in our hearts for the doofy dogs who hold their own online. With their drive to serve humans and their perpetually-sunny personalities, dogs are just too pure for this world. No matter how badly our day is going, we can't help but smile (or outright guffaw) when we see a silly dog doing silly dog things. Don't believe it? Check out these funny dog GIFs that are pretty much guaranteed to put a smile on your face. 01 of 22 Superdog in Training Via Giphy You didn't think being super just happens, did you? It takes hard work and dedication... and a tiny super suit. 02 of 22 The Pug Scrubber Via Giphy "Awww yiss, that's the spot." This dog is livin' the dream! 03 of 22 Get The Ball! Via Imgur Nailed it! Further proof that not all of nature's creatures are majestic. Some are just doing their best, and that's okay. 04 of 22 "Um, excuse me?" Via Imgur "Did I TELL you to stop petting me?" <aside> "It's so hard to find good human help these days." 05 of 22 "Do you even work out, brah?" Via Giphy You can tell he's serious about his workouts because he's wearing a teeny tiny little sweatband. 06 of 22 In my next life... Via Giphy ... I want to come back as this spoiled pupper. In the meantime, I think I need to shop for one of these awesome neck massagers, STAT. 07 of 22 Just working out, when suddenly... Via doggifpage Darn it, Fido! Did you have to drag your itchy bum across the carpet right next to my home gym setup? AND while I was making this inexplicable video of myself lifting weights? 08 of 22 Tiny floof attempting to escape Via Giphy If at first you don't succeed, try, try again. And again. And once more, for good measure. 09 of 22 He's the Assistant Branch Manager Via Giphy He's also a master of geometry, not to mention a very good boy! 10 of 22 So close! Via Giphy Okay, not really close at all, but A for effort! This dog's owner loves to throw delicious treats at him, but the dog is not so adept at catching said treats. It's all part of his charm. 11 of 22 At least he's not afraid of the vacuum cleaner. Via Giphy In fact, he thinks it's yummy! Get it, buddy. You can do it! 12 of 22 This dog is my spirit animal. Via Giphy This is exactly how I work out, too. It's better for everyone involved if my top half doesn't know what my bottom half is doing. 13 of 22 Proud puppy taking big dog for a walk Via Giphy Right up until the point when the older dog says, "Hey, wait a minute. Who's in charge here?" Hint: It's not the puppy. 14 of 22 He doesn't know if he's coming or going. Via Giphy That's it -- your Halloween costume is ready to go, and it's sure to win first prize. Look at that wiggly nose! 15 of 22 This is how lazy dogs do stairs. Via Giphy He'll get there eventually, but it won't be graceful. 16 of 22 Somebody's got the munchies. Via Giphy "No, I have not seen your special baggie full of strange green leaves. Why do you ask?" 17 of 22 "Did someone say WALK?" Via Giphy Boing, boing, boing! We'll take that as a yes! 18 of 22 These boots are made for walkin'. Via Giphy Good thing he doesn't look silly walking in his brand new snow boots, otherwise he might be embarrassed to wear them. *Ahem* 19 of 22 A "tail" as old as time. Via Giphy We hate to break it to you, little guy, but you're never, ever, EVER going to catch that tiny tail of yours. 20 of 22 Soon. Via Giphy Dun dun duuuuun! This overly dramatic husky would like to come in now, please. 21 of 22 "On the next season of 'Dancing With The Stars...'" What do you mean this guy wasn't in Dirty Dancing? He's either mastered the cha-cha or the "I have to tinkle" dance — we can't tell which. 22 of 22 Last but definitely not least... Via Giphy We leave you with this exceptionally happy birthday doggy birthday party! The look on his face is absolutely priceless. Best. Day. EVER! Dogs of the world, please don't ever change! We humans really need you to bring smiles, laughter, and belly rubs into our lives. These GIFs provide proof that our canine companions really do make the world a nicer place to live.
