I like dogs. Here are some of my favorites.

Pyrenean Shepherd

The reason I love this dog so much is that it’s quite compact, but looks like it has the head of a much bigger dog PhotoShopped on to it.

You get that ‘big dog’ feel without the food bill.

Azawakh

I’m quite a lean creature (not in an attractive way), so I must admit I feel a certain affinity with the Azawakh.

Oh shit sorry wrong picture, here we go:

In the right light, this might just be the dog that looks the most like a big cat.

I think a great prank would be do give someone that lives in an apartment a two month old Azawakh and tell them it’s a fully grown Italian Greyhound. Then a year later they’re waking up to this thing slobbering on their face.

Borzoi

Speaking of dogs that look like cats, check out the top left quarter of this thing.

I can only imagine the bodily functions that would occur if I was walking through the woods and came across one of these things:

It doesn’t bark or howl, it screams into your soul

I know it’s a dog because I just googled for the photo, and even I’m not certain that’s a dog.

I think we can all agree that everything in Russia is weird, and the Borzoi is no exception. But like the rest of the weird shit in Russia, it’s pretty damn cool.

Isn’t that right, Frosty?

Who me?

Irish Wolfhound

Yes you inferred correctly from the name, this is a dog, that hounds wolves. These are massive, vicious creatures. Here’s one next to a full size horse for scale:

That’s, like, 8 feet tall or something. Here’s another one, this time next to Hulk Hogan in his 30's:

Mr Hogan and his Wolfhound, Mr Thiel.

Blue Lacy

The little pooch is the hot-chick-that-doesn’t-know-it of the dog world.

She’s all like “I don’t know why people are always giving me free stuff, doesn’t that happen to everyone?”

Bolognese

Speaking of sexy, here’s the sauciest of all the dogs:

Neapolitan Mastiff

Another great prank dog. Buy a superficial friend one of these gorgeous puppies. Tell them it’s a Shar Pei.

Then watch their slow-motion horror at it grows up into this thing.

He isn’t sick, that’s a normal one!

In fact, I think if Google cared about animal welfare, when you searched for pictures of “neapolitan mastiff puppies” it would throw in a few adult pictures just so you know what you’re getting yourself into.

Bergamasco Shepherd

I think of all the dogs that smoke pot, this is the one that takes it the most seriously.

I bet he even knows the different types and has a preference. He’d be all like “Nah man that Bubba Kush gives me bad vibes. Right now I’m into Maui Wowie or Amnesia Haze. Maybe some LA Confidential if I’m on my way to a dog show.”

Wirehaired Pointing Griffon

The dog with the thousand-yard stare.

Warren cares little for this world. He will consume your treats, but his thoughts are consumed by the memory of that fateful day on the high seas. Of the freak wave that breached the bow, sweeping his owner — no, his best friend — overboard. Like a sack of potatoes, down he went. Oh, if only he wasn’t wearing that backpack filled with potatoes.

Not a day goes by that he doesn’t wish it was he taken by that wave, that his wire-haired soul could be laid to rest at the bottom of the ocean.

No more walkies, no more treats, no more sleeping at Daddy’s feet.

Spinone Italiano

Do you know how you can spot an Italian dog?

By its accent.

Dumb joke #2

What’s the difference between Popeye and this dog?

One’s a Finnish Spitz, the other has spinach fits.

Saluki

I don’t know what it is about the Saluki, maybe it’s this dog in particular, but I just imagine it carrying a handbag…

With another little dog in it.

Rough collie

You might look at this beautiful creature and think it’s name doesn’t suit at all.

But you haven’t seen her drunk.

That’s it folks, thanks for reading.

Happy birthday, Erica.
