The endless lockdowns, restrictions, and constantly-changing regulations are putting all of us on edge. And it’s not just us, human beings, who are going a bit… derpy. Our four-legged canine companions, our bestest boys and girls, are joining in and acting weird in the most adorable and hilarious ways.
Don’t believe us? Have a scroll through this fabulous list about the ‘What’s Wrong With Your Dog’ subreddit, an online community of nearly 1.1 million dog-loving fans. Upvote their best new photos and be sure to check out their group when you have a chance. We promise, you’ll have a whole new appreciation for the range of emotions and depth of character that doggos have.
When you’re done with this list, go visit some more derpy ‘malfunctioning’ dogs in Bored Panda’s previous post here. (Remember to bring chew toys and steaks.)
From dogs who just looove to people-watch from the roof to utter goofs who like sitting on the wall (yup!), all of them deserve a pat on the head, a healthy snack, and a belly rub for making our lives brighter and our smiles wider.
The lighthearted ‘What’s Wrong With Your Dog’ subreddit is dedicated to documenting the derpiness of dogs ranging from the cute but confusing all the way up the scale to ‘my pet broke the Matrix and I don’t know what I should do.’
When One Sits On The Wall, Obviously The Other Has To, Too
Created in the late summer of 2015, the subreddit has grown considerably in that time. Just within the last few months since our earlier feature article, the community has added around 100k new members. Imagine a stadium filled with that many people and you’ll realize just how big that number is.
We’ve got no doubt that the moderators and the group members are already looking forward to the moment the number hits the next big milestone—2 million. Every new member counts, so go on, give them a follow if you love dogs (we know you do, even if you tell everyone you’re a cat person!).

In a previous interview, Bored Panda reached out to redditor Just-a-traveler, the legend behind the ‘What’s Wrong With Your Dog’ subreddit. He told us that he made the subreddit because dogs are “pure-hearted, loveable goofs” which shows you just how wholesome the idea to create the community really was.

“I wanted that folks could have a place to share their [moments from their goof's life] while the rest of us gather around, point and laugh," the founder and moderator of the subreddit explained to us. It’s a win-win situation for everyone: dog owners get to show off their best friends while the rest of us can have something nice to look at with our morning cup of coffee to get our day off to a good start.

However, this isn’t the only group on Reddit that Just-a-traveler has created for us to enjoy. They’re also the founder of ‘What’s Wrong With Your Cat,’ a mirror-community for those Pandas who think that derpy felines are better than goofy canines.
"I made a similar subreddit for cats, but the people are passionate about pups too, so when the world gets you down, visit us for eye candy and soul solace.

The most popular dog malfunctions, according to the redditor, are often related to mirrors, as well as farts. What’s more, dogs look incredibly goofy when they sleep. “They have zero shame and are the best creatures on the planet.”

Just-a-traveler said that both of his online groups about dogs and cats are meant to show the fun and lighthearted sides of owning pets. One of the draws of both subreddits is that the pictures often speak for themselves and rarely need any extra words (even if they do spark our curiosity and the context can be fun to learn about).

The ‘What’s Wrong With Your Dog’ moderators ask their members to be polite, reminding them of this in two different parts of their rule subsection. They also explain that you don’t necessarily have to post a photo of your dog (though that’s encouraged), but you should have the decency to not pretend that the pet is yours if it isn’t.

What’s more, this isn’t the place to post photos of injured dogs, canines who have gone to live on the farm, or for various campaigns to support pets in need. With rules like these, the group’s message remains clear: it’s about celebrating goofiness. Nothing more. Nothing less.
