Never underestimate how clever dogs can be. Especially when their owner sets rules for them...

"I'm not allowed on the couch? Well, as long as one foot is on the ground, technically I'm not breaking the rules!" Below, Bored Panda has put together a list of dogs that thought of the most clever ways to bend the rules. In fact, they bend the rules in such an adorable way it's impossible to get mad at them! But I bet they knew that already... Keep on scrolling to check out the pics and feel free to submit your own to the list.
