10 reasons why dogs are overrated

Sure, dogs may be cute and always happy to see you… But besides giving us heart-melting puppy dog eyes, they’re totally overrated!

1. They chew EVERYTHING!

If you own a dog, you’ll know that you can’t leave your favourite shoes lying around… or else your dog will chew on them! The phrase ‘the dog ate my homework’ wasn’t just invented for fun! Most canines will chew on anything they can get their jaws on.

 

2. Barking. Enough said

Woof! Woof! Barking is so overrated, and not to mention annoying… especially when dogs bark at nothing. Sorry, neighbours!

 

3. Dogs chase their tails

Dogs chase their tails for all sorts of reasons, sometimes for fun, curiosity, or even because they have fleas! Who wants to spend all day chasing their own tail? Boring!

 

4. They hog the bed

Did you know that more than 45% of dogs sleep in their owner’s bed? We’re also pretty sure most dogs also hog the blankets. Move over, red Rover!

 

5. Wet nose? Eww!

Dogs’ noses secrete a thin layer of mucous, which helps them absorb scents. This means they constantly have a wet nose. Gross!

 

6. Watch that plate of cookies!

A dog’s sense of smell is 10,000 – 100,000 times stronger than humans’, which means they can smell a plate of goodies from far away! You’ve got to keep an eye on that wandering nose.

 

7.  Dogs see in black and white

While tests have shown that dogs can also pick up on shades of yellow and blue, most can only see the colours of the world in shades of grey. Life is so much duller without seeing the colours of the rainbow!

 

8. Dogs like their food… a little too much!

Obesity is the #1 health problem among our canine companions. Take that fatty!

 

9. Dogs can be expensive

The most expensive dog in the world, a Tibetan Mastiff, was recently bought in China for $1.5 million. OMG!

 

10. Dogs can’t eat chocolate

Dogs can’t eat chocolate because it contains a substance that can make our furry friends really sick. What is life without a slice of choccie?
