World, I don’t get you.
Not a single whisker — in a starring role, anyway — graces YouTube’s top 10 list of 2012. I can understand the more than one billion views of “Gangnam Style,” but you couldn’t click on a dog or cat video instead of watching “Call Me Maybe” for the 55 millionth time?
In response to what I hope doesn’t become a trend, I present my 10 favorite dog videos of this year. Let’s get back on track, world.
I can’t believe the pet parent aids and abets! Poor Dash.
So sweet. So hilarious. “I hate this hippie soap. It stinks,” Dex says, adding, “Daddy, you’re makin’ me smell like Burning Man!” Read the Dogster interview with Wheeler for more “awwww” moments.
Oh, to have this kind of coordination. Learn more about Geronimo’s training.
Tret does doggie parkour, and it’s amazing.
Between the licky sounds and the flying feet, I just can’t take the cuteness!
My favorite parody of the much-parodied original. Dogster writer Liz Acosta even wrote lyrics for this version.
Banthapug! Need I say more? See Chubbs as a wampug, too.
This video tells story of one homeless dog’s journey to a furever home, from her perspective. So touching. We wrote about this one back in May.
Fussy = adorable.
A list of favorite dog videos from me wouldn’t be complete without an entry from dog-rescuer Eldad Hagar. Have a tissue handy because it’s a tearjerker. It does have a happy ending, though.
Let’s hear from you, readers. What are your favorite dog videos from 2012?
