Things People Accidentally Trained Their Pets to Do

Pavlovian conditioning can be a powerful thing. Just by sheer association, pets can learn very specific things, like how this smart dog learned the dinner criteria. Some pets take it a step further, like this dog who figured out how to herd a lawn roomba. Pets can learn a lot of very specific things. Usually it has to do with treats.

Animals that Basically Melted

There are very few beings that are capable of being as relaxed as these melty animals right here. The flaps and wobbly folds of these dogs, birds, and rodents are a marvel to behold; a splendorous foil to the stiff and rigid. These animals are basically puddles, man. For more surprisingly relaxed animals, here are sleepy dogs in goofy positions.

Pets that had Run-Ins with Bees

 Like people, cats and dogs can have responses to bee venom that can be mild to severe, but with the right attention and care they just swell up for a while and go back to normal. So for a while, you get an inflated dog or a cat with extreme lips. For some pet stories, here's a wholesome AirBnB with a neighborhood dog visitor as well as a Tumblr thread about a dog that figured out how to herd a lawn roomba.

Vegans Called Fake Because They Feed Their Cat Meat

This one seems pretty cut and dried. Their friends seem a bit extreme and have a hard time understanding what cats eat. The decision to eat meat is one that causes bacon drama between fathers and daughters, and poor dietary information can lead to some really awkward situations like this woman who learned mayonnaise wasn't vegan.

Funny and Weird Animal Memes and Moments

Pets Actual Names Versus what Owners Call Them

Sure your dog's name might be Ken but over a few months, for unknown reasons it can easily be morphed into something like Lord Grandpa or Rudolphus Fudge-Maker or Blastoise McCartney or what have you. Nadia Bolz-Weber asked Twitter what they actually call their pets. Here's a pet shelter that gave cats wild names so we found a bunch.

Dad Orders Box Of Crickets, Wrongly Assumes They're Sealed Off

This story about a dad who ordered a box of crickets for the family's pet lizard, never gets old. Apparently, dad assumed that the crickets arrived in a box, sealed off, and not susceptible to breaking free to get absolutely everywhere. Dad was very wrong. His assumption resulted in just the kind of chaos that folks can get a kick out of. I mean, at least the cats experienced a dreamy day of wonderful play.

Tumblr users like animals, and even go as far as to make the case for coconuts as mammals.
