If you haven't seen the shenanigans of The Museum of English Rural Life on Twitter, then you've missed a lot, but you can still catch up on their tweets here. And if you're up to date with their perfect sense of humor, here's what they've recently came up with. For #NationalDogDay on August 26th the MERL, whose mission is to "explore the English countryside, its history, and its people," asked readers to submit bios of their funny dogs who were bred for practical purposes but now fills their days doing nothing of any useful purpose and primarily spending their days as couch potatoes.
As you might know, dog breeds differ not only by looks but also by a job the dog is supposed to do or be good at. For example, a Labrador Retriever is a working dog who was bred to retrieve shot game, a Bernese Mountain was bred to be a guard dog, and Foxhound, well, to hunt foxes. Despite careful breeding and being perfect specimens of their dog types all the doggies from the MERL's challenge have failed their duties so bad that it became absolutely uproarious.
