There’s a new craze on Facebook, YouTube and Twitter for something that’s called dogshaming. It consists of posting a picture or video of your dog with a sign next to them saying something like ‘my farts are smelly’ or ‘I wee on the carpet’.
A lot of people seem to find this hilarious but I’m sorry but I don’t. I think that for the love, loyalty and total honesty that you get from a dog the occassional widdle on the carpet or smelly fart is a small price to pay. A dog is one of the most beautiful animals on this planet and I just don’t think its amusing to want to reward their love by humiliating them.
If any animal should be shamed; it should be us. Dogs don’t start wars. Dogs don’t chop down the rainforest and pollute the whole planet. Dogs are infintely better behaved than most humans (apart from the bum sniffing!) As far as I can see dogs have nothing to be ashamed of but we have!
