I am a cat person. I grew up with (count ’em) nine different cats; it’s hard to escape that kind of immersion. However, in recent months, I have attempted to overcome my innate fear of dogs and prejudiced preference for cats. My endeavor to become a dog lover is mostly inspired by my dad’s new dog, Bailey, but it’s a universal phenomenon—I’ve started to embrace every dog I come across. (Shout out to HelloSociety’s own Stella, the most beautiful creature I have ever known.) Even my immediate physiological response to meeting dogs has changed recently: I see a dog and my instinct is to start cooing wildly. I try to tone it down for the sake of propriety.
In honor of the pure beauty of our canine friends, here are five adorable dog Vines. (Okay, and one extra. I couldn’t pick.)
She’s so talented! Look at how great that jump is! She totally deserves that treat.
She’s going on a road trip! She’s so excited! I bet she’s great at driving long distances. Murphy kind of looks like my dad’s dog Bailey, but with better teeth. They’re also similarly squeaky.
3. This baseball lover
Good job! I think he has a bright future ahead of him in the MLB.
You may be noticing a trend. My favorite Vine trope is when dogs fail to do a task (and probably are cuter for that failure). Owen should be very proud of himself.
5. Miller the Rottweiler
Miller is trying his best, and his best is adorable.
Plus, 6. The Most Calming Vine I’ve Ever Watched
The music, the backlighting, the angle of the camera, the little bug that flies by the dog’s head and makes his ears perk up, the autumnal colors, and best of all, the perfect looping: truly, one of the most masterful Vines I’ve ever seen.
