9 Funny Pictures of Dogs

By David Aaron Moore, Networx

Ever wonder why funny pictures of dogs and their companionship can make us so happy? According to the book 100 Simple Secrets: Why Dogs Make Us Happy (David Niven, PhD, Harper Collins, $11.95), there are a number of reasons we enjoy their companionship.

Dogs can promote better health and well-being by getting us out and moving around when we take them for walks or out to play. (What better motivation to hire a landscaper than to have a nice place to play with your dog?) They can facilitate better communications between humans simply by their presence. Who’s not drawn to a cute dog? That might lead to a new human acquaintance, friend or even a potential romantic partner.

Another bonus: our canine friends want to make us happy. They are attuned to certain cues and quick to respond because they enjoy our positive responses. In other words, there’s more than just a little bit of us in them than we may realize. That’s probably why so many of their various comedic antics can conjure up instant laughter.

After digging through an endless array of Facebook photo files and talking with various friends and acquaintances about their doggie pals, here are my personal favorite funny pictures of dogs.

Sorry, Mr.Moore, but I honestly didn't find any of these funny. There are great, hilarious pics all over the Internet, perhaps Facebook photos wasn't the place to start. I know you tried to make funny captions, but I don't think you succeeded. Sorry for the negativity, but all feedback is good- makes you a better writer.
