  1. This is an oldie, but it’s still so wonderful and funny.

  2. Mary (the first) says:

    Bwaa hahaaa.. Actually, I think Denver is sorry he ate the treats, but only because it probably gave him a big belly ache!

  3. I don’t think Denver is sorry he ate the treats, only sorry that he got busted for it. :)

  4. He’s going to turn into a cat now!

  5. Denver is a cutie. Something not quite right about the owner though. Shaming your dog and posting it to YouTube for a laugh? Maybe if he had given Denver a hug afterwards?

  6. In my house, if a bag of treats gets eaten, the human who put it where the dogs could reach it gets blamed. It’s really helping with my training.

  7. Yea, I know it was meant to be tongue in cheek, but if you read the doggies signals, he is truly in fear. I have seen this video before and I always find it upsetting. Maybe that is also because I am a just a big softie.

  8. He made the doggie cry

    I agree, Denver’s body language is
    shouting anxiety. Poor baby.

  10. When I watched this video, I saw see a big, well-groomed, healthy-looking lab in a nice clean home with another seemingly happy dog AND a cat that obviously gets treats with a dad who has a good sense of humor.

    I really, really did not think that this video would get some of the reactions it did. I’d hate to think what people would say if they saw how dirty my basset is tonight after her joyous roll in the mud today…

    Personally, I would NEVER put any animal or kid video up on youtube. Too many people are too quick to try and judge your whole life and intent from watching a 2 minute video.

  11. Good rule.

  12. “Yeah, ok, I did it – but keep your voice down, ‘k? If the cat finds out that I raided his treats, the punishment he will think up will make a time-out in the kennel look like an all-expenses-paid trip for two to Aruba.”

    You’re projecting, or you haven’t spent time around “that” kind of lab.

  14. why does no one think the cat night have done it?

  15. Yes of course the cat did it. And he’s blackmailed Denver into taking the fall. There’s only one evil (but cute) genius in this house and it ain’t the hoomins or the canines.

  16. Nah, this is typical submission behavior. The pup is anxious, for sure. And I’m not suggesting that unwanted behavior not be dealt with, just that, I think, finding shame funny or cute is kind of adolescent.

  17. You probably won’t like “50 Shades of Grey,” then.

    Besides, you’ll never feel bad when you submit to Cuteoverload.

  18. You guys need to go look at Denver’s Facebook page. She and her sister doggie Masey are very loved and very happy. This is not anxious behavior for Denver. She makes faces all the time.

  19. Same here. Also goes for the idiot human who sits on the dog’s place on the couch – his/her fault if the dog has to sit ON them then! :)

  20. Good point.

    My cat would totally do such a thing and my dogs are kind enough to take the fall. The odd thing is that when my cats have done such things, there’s usually, 784 puncture ‘wounds’ all over the bag where (I guess) they keep trying to figure out how to daintily open the bag.

    ‘Course, the cats are smart enough to open it ‘like a dog’ if they’re gonna frame the dog. Diabolical little things…

  21. I LOOOVE adolescent humor. Fart jokes are the best. Especially when delivered BY an adolescent!

  22. Yeah, Denver was tail-wagging when dad walked over, and I see that “smiley face” from my boss’s dog alllll the time. Dog facial expressions don’t always read as easily to people, haha.

  23. Oh that cat totally did it! The bite mark was way too small for the dogs, that was kitty persistence right there. I’ve witnessed it myself, thus the cat treats stay in the cupboard from now on.

  24. Blue Footed Booby says:

    I know it’s submissive behavior. I’m objecting to the other poster’s implication that “oh no he’s so afraid what mean people.” Is the guy with the camera yelling? Do you see any sign that lardo is being neglected or mistreated? Some dogs are completely shameless, and some are drama queens who act like…that at the drop of a hat, then turn around and immediately do whatever got them in trouble all over again. Rushing to judgement about the dog not just behaving submissively but actually being *afraid* is not only tremendously premature but, in my opinion, fairly offensive. I’d bet rescue gal would *never* say what she posted to the owner’s face.

  25. Boy, if you weren’t a regular, you would SO be on a time out. I hope this conversation turns civil or just fades a w a y . . .

  26. I was thinking the same thing! Somewhere off camera is a kitteh holding a scissors laughing mightily. :D

    Doggehs looked OK to me. Tone of hoomin’s voice was fine…it’s the same tone I use when I step in barf and tell my kittehs they are the worst cats evar (Ok, the pitch of my voice is waaay higher…eek). :D

  27. Exactly. Of my three dogs, I had two that behaved this way when ribbed (for minor infractions such as passing gas or lurking around people food). My dogs were always well behaved. I can count on one hand the number of times any of them were actually reprimanded or corrected. Submissive squinting and grinning is not fear, it’s a placating or peace-making posture (affectation) that is perfectly natural in even the most well-adjusted dogs. Some dogs even grin and squint as an affectionate and submissive greeting to family members.
