For someone who has been stuck in a window for 11 years you look properly nourished.

Guess we know what happened to the first dog.

Very hot

The pie or the guy?

Well probably like in cartoons and movies from the 50s, his mom continuously put apple pies in the windows to cool

Every tried to grab a cooling pie? The ones I make are usually still stupidly hot even hours later. No one stole fresh pies off window sills. The 1950s were a lie.

"You look properly nourished" sounds like a pick up line at an autistic singles night.

I'm technically autistic,

I still laugh


And people say we don't have a sense of humour


People who know us know better.

It can be dry, direct, literal, slightly blunt (with friends), or cynical (a joke unnoticed by the target is best). Still humor :D Just different

Now that I, at age 35, have two dogs, it sometimes makes me sad that I never got to experience the friendship of a dog when I was growing up.

28 here and got my first dog about 6 months ago. I too always dreamed of having one growing up, but I'm also glad I got one when I did because I'm pretty sure I found the greatest dog ever ( I'm sure I would feel that way about pretty much any dog though). I'm convinced I always want to have one, and if I have kids I'll make sure they get to grow up with that privilege

My girlfriend and I rescued a pit boxer mix, and my 2 year old son loves him to death. It makes me so happy to see my son creating this bond with his new best friend. I'm pretty sure he's an older dog, maybe like 5, but he is so patient with my boy and I don't know how to express how grateful I am to this dog. It brings a tear to my eye every time I see them cuddling

I walked into my local pound and grabbed the first pitbull mix I saw, it's crazy how sweet this dog is. I think he might be a border collie and Pitbull mix . Just reading your comment melted my heart and I know that this was the best decision ever.

Mate, now you have the wherewithal and self-awareness to truly appreciate their company (like if you grew up with them you'd sometimes take them for granted). Make up for it now!

So true! I regularly tell my dogs how much they mean to me. I feel they understand me, or at least my love and gratitude. Life is so much more special with them in it. <3

That’s so true, I had my first dog when I was a kid and, even if I took care of him and played with him, I only did it because it was my duty. I often mistreated him and talked to him in an annoyed/angry way, not because I meant to be bad, I just took his incredible trust and love for granted.
He died when he was just 3 years old because he decided to go out for a walk without supervision and got hit by a douchebag who was driving at light speed on a road with 30km/h speed limit.
The last time I saw him alive was before going out to the gym and I didn’t even say goodbye, instead I harshly scolded him because he had tried to bite a guy who was unloading chopped wood for the chimney.
I only realized how much I loved that little annoying critter when I saw him lying dead on the floor, and how much better of a owner I could have been for him. I didn’t even say goodbye .
It’s been almost ten years since then, and I now am the owner of an 8 years old good boye to whom I give all the love that I can, but I still haven’t coped with that. It’s difficult for me just to talk about it, I feel so guilty for not having been able to reciprocate all the love that poor dog had for me and I feel like the fact that “I was just a kid” doesn’t justify me.

Dogs love unconditionally, so even though you scolded him he still loved you and knew you loved him too. You shouldn't feel guilty, because we all lose our shit on occasion, but it's meant that you're able to show more love and affection for your new pup than you were able to previously. And old pup's soul is floating around pleased that you're happy and not alone anymore

My family had a dog before I was born and he died a long time ago, I barely remember him. After that we got two dogs, a mother and her son. She died around two years ago and I was an emotional wreck and kept blaming myself for not giving her enough love, but also used that sadness to dedicate that much more time to the other one, that is still with us.

I was confused on how the most recent looked younger

Yea, I thought the 2nd one was a taxidermied version of the first. Kinda had a 'wtf' moment.

Fucking hilarious hahahahaha

It’s Rowdy!

Looks like Steven to me.

nope, chuck testa!

Huh, I thought the 2nd looked older and a bit thinner. Kind of like how my dog looked as he got up to 12-14 years old.

Yeah, I even said under my breath "gettin' a little long in the snout"


Woot er yoo say?

I thought the second one looked very old

I thought it was the same dog.. I'm stupid :(

I'm stupid too!

on this day we are all stupid

Oh, I'll bet a lot of us thought it was the same dog. Right?

I thought too

And two different generations of child actors! The second one was a huge mistake. He's supposed to be 9 years old, but we later found out he's actually 26.

C'mon man. Would of been better if it was the same dog. This is just you 11 years older.


Okay, I was confused because first doggo looked older.

And here I was worried that George has probably a few months left.. Phew... Oh.. Wait.. :(

But what about that little Blond pup on the left !?

So not what the title implies.

Seriously, I'm so disappointed rn. I knew I should have invested in bamboozle insurance.

I fucking love dogs. Give that good boy some pets from me!

I'm crying now, thinking about the pets I had growing up. So ya, thanks for that.

But really. Thank You. Those memories are some of my best, and I probably don't bring them up often enough to do my old friends justice, just because it hurt.

Make the time count!

And this is why I'm scared of getting pets. I don't know if I'd be able to survive the pain of losing them😩

24 points · 6 months ago

Part of the beauty of pets is they help you learn to embrace those vulnerabilities. The pain of loss is natural, and pets give us a free trial run at it without expecting anything in return. The love and happiness you can give a pet far out weighs the grief of losing one imo

Wow that was so eloquently put you might have actually changed my mind.

Hello future doggos!

Oh Hi my Ex-gf, I didn't know you are on reddit as well..

Long as you don't 'dance' on my ripped heart this time, it's all good!

The fate of having a best boy as a friend. But both look pretty happy and I'm sure they had a magnificent life.
