Canine joyfully breaks household rules

Wacky Web Week

Many dog people suspect that their canine companions indulge in forbidden impulses when left unsupervised. Sometimes those suspicions are based on bits of evidence — such as misplaced pillows and wrinkled bed covers — people find when they return home from work.

In this case, the dog doesn’t simply bend the rules — it takes great joy in its furniture transgression. After all, in the dog’s mind, it’s your space only when you’re there. (It’s obviously useless to outlaw bed-sitting to a cat — and so the household cat sits as it wishes, as cats always do.) Click below or go to the original YouTube video.
