50 Moments Of Dogs Malfunctioning And Their Humans Failing To Resist The Urge To Document It For The #UnflatteringDogPhotoChallenge (New Pics)
Despite most people saying that cats own the internet, there are some who dare say the same about dogs. It’s hard to really determine which of the two has more “real estate” on the internet, but one thing is certain: both make people smile.
If you’re a fan of Bored Panda, you will have heard of the Dogspotting Society’s Unflattering Dog Photo Challenge—a hashtag challenge on Facebook that has pet owners sharing some of the derpiest and most unflattering (but in a super adorable way) pictures of their dogs. We’ve actually covered it not too long ago.
Well, brace yourself for part 2 as people have recently started submitting pictures to the challenge, which you can find in a curated list below. And while you’re here, be sure to leave a comment and give the doggos some upvotes below!
"This is Ethel an ancient chihuahua I recently rescued. She goes in Tuesday for her eye to be removed from previous trauma. Please send her some good juju, mojo, prayers, whatever you can. She makes me laugh every day."
"Update! Ethel made it through eye surgery and is now resting next to me at home. ❤️"
Bored Panda got in touch with Megan Lewis, one of the people who partook in this challenge by submitting Gretel the German Shorthaired Pointer sitting on her bum, looking all nonchalant.
Gretel is actually Megan's "DIL" or "dog-in-law," as she puts it. She belongs to her husband's parents, they gave the blessing to post the image to the challenge. "So, Gretel is basically like my sister in law," joked Megan
"My late baby szary always did this when called. Such a... Normal pup"
"My awesome in-laws just walked into their living room to find this nonsense. Gretel is 100% the wildcard of the German Shorthaired Pointers in the family."
"Gretel puppy is a rescue. She enjoys long walks and harassing birds. She also has a GSP sister that she likes to sleep on top of... Gretel could host her own show and I'd watch it."
You can find an interview with Gretel's "sister in law" in the article.
"You decide... Her name is Peaches, she’s a death row rescue from Miami. Breed guess is mastiff/boxer/bulldog/pit mix. 1 year cancer free after emergency bowel resection due to a rare gastrointestinal stromal tumor"
"Gretel is what's known as a 'hot mess express' and we are routinely sent pictures of her looking crazy or judgy or both," elaborated Megan. "This is a regular occurrence. They'll find her in all sorts of places she shouldn't be. She's a rescue from All Points West Gsp Rescue based out of Colorado."
"This is Charles's second entry. He is an odd fellow. I give you, his favorite sleeping position."
"Ralphie is here for his entry to the #unflatteringdogphotochallenge"
"Life with huskies 👀"
Mom: "smile for a picture!!"
Princeton: "dis sucks"
Kingston: : "3/10 worst mom ever..."
Prince & King: "dis torture.. call da pawlice for aboose.. need new mom"
As you might have guessed, Gretel's judgy yet oh so hilariously cute photo blew up online, garnering over 21,000 reactions on Facebook with over 1,300 comments and nearly 500 shares.
And this surely came as a surprise to Megan: "No one in the fam expected Gretel to 'blow up' online. We're just all so glad everyone that liked and commented got to see the spaztastic and funny family pooch!"
