Dogs have many thoughts. They just can't tell us about them. Except this one. Twitter account @dog_feelings (previously here and here) is a humorous and adorable project that tries to experience the world through the eyes of our beloved four-legged friends. Amassing nearly 3 million followers, it regularly shares the things any pup might wonder about. Like, the size of the outside. Or the purpose of the leash. Scroll down to check them out and who knows, maybe they'll make you understand your doggo more.

Thoughts of Dog is brought to us by Matt Nelson, the same guy who created the blockbuster We Rate Dogs account. Nelson became a social media sensation from the unlikeliest of locations: an Applebee’s in North Carolina.

On November 15, 2015, he and a few of his friends were there after a golf tournament when he brought up the idea of @dog_rates. “I saw other people doing extraordinary things in 140 characters — making me laugh and making me feel things in that limited character space. I got addicted to that challenge as well,” he told Money. “I realized dogs were a very hot topic on the internet. If I wanted my writing to reach more people, I wanted to utilize dogs.”

I'm very grateful - it's scary sometimes.

After issuing his first-ever rating — an 8/10, by the next morning the account had 3,000 followers. Nelson’s inbox was soon overflowing with people asking him to rate their dogs. Now, the follower army of the legendary account is over 8.4 million strong.

My terrier most days. He wants to go out for a walk but outside is scarier than he remembers from yesterday when he had to yell at all the cars and bigger dogs (anxious rescue!).

Yeah - and you ate it too. Even though it was probably a few days old and you'll barf it up on the stairs later for me to step in. Still love you the best!

Smart. The lap is warmer and that way you know where your human is even while you sleep (can't risk losing your human ... to the bathroom, for example)
