Dogs have a funny way of being adorable, confusing, and frustrating at the same time, but these cartoons by Rupert Fawcett will help you shake it all off your tail.

The London-based cartoonist has struck gold with his Off The Leash series, and for canine owners, these comics are just too close to reality. "The inspiration comes from growing up with dogs and the dogs of family members, friends and even strangers I may see out and about with their dogs." Rupert told Bored Panda. He takes apart supposed 'dog logic', and tries to rationalize the thoughts of dogs in different situations, with hilarious results. The scenes are heartwarming, too, because they remind us that our pups usually have the best of intentions, and most often just need a cuddle at the end of the day.

Rupert Fawcett rose to fame in the early 90's with his Fred cartoon series, and now has almost 1 million followers on Facebook. "The success of OTL is keeping me very busy and at the moment I am spending a lot of time working on scripts and storyboards for an animated OTL TV series which is currently in production." He told us about the future of his penned pups. Cat parents, never fear - Rupert released an On The Prowl book this year as well.

I was dog-sitting for an officer when I was stationed in Heidelberg and this exact thing happened. We took the dog into town but prior we tried to get her to do her business. She ended up going right in the middle of a street that had heavy pedestrian traffic. Stupid me hadn't brought any bags along (left them in the car) and had to stand there with the dog and a big steaming pile of poo while people walked by giving me all kinds of looks. Some scowled, some laughed at me. My friend took her sweet time getting back to me with a bag.

My dog farts in her sleep and as soon as she realizes that she's farted, she runs away from it
