Capturing good pictures of pets can be as easy as holding up a treat or toy. And while those pictures are great for a holiday card, it’s the candid pictures that take the cake and make people belly laugh.
From enthusiastic dogs jumping towards a ball with their jowls flopping every which way to goofy cats twisting in the air, here are some perfectly timed and hilarious pet photos.
The Perfectly-Timed Bubble Ball
It’s shiny, circular, and, hey, it probably looks like a ball to this precious animal. Unfortunately, that sparkling light in his eye is about to go away after he realizes the “ball” is actually a bubble.
Even though the bubble will ultimately pop, this pooch’s owner gets a whole lot of props for their awesome photography timing. Seriously, this perfectly-timed shot is one for the scrapbook. He just looks so thrilled!
“Did I Get The Scary Facial Expression Right?”
Okay, while this cat looks a bit deranged (in the best way possible), he gets a lot of kudos for trying to be a scary tiger. Even more impressive than the broken cat face is that their human was able to capture the moment.
Now, they’ll always remember the cat that thought it was a tiger statue, replicating its roar and serious-looking eyes with all of the deep-seated malice it could work up. As it turns out, that malice was more along the lines of goofiness.
The Perfect Tourist
If a person doesn’t take a picture of themselves pretending to fix the Leaning Tower of Pisa when traveling through Italy, did they even travel? Well, this dog’s human went a step further, showing off her pooch’s training skills and having his “fix” the tower.
He’s not only the best boy on the lawn, but he’s hands down the perfect tourist. Just look how happy he looks! This perfectly-timed photo deserves a perfect 10 for execution.
Never Taking His Eyes Off The Ball Is An Intense Matter
To catch the ball, one must never take their eyes off the ball. At least, that must be what’s running through this dog’s mind. It looks as though he hasn’t blinked and wants nothing more than to catch the toy before it hits the ground.
He gets seriously high marks for the intensity but even higher marks for the adorable little tongue that’s just barely sticking out of his mouth.
The Most Honest Reaction To A Bubble
The funny part about this picture is that this dog has the same reaction to a bubble that a little kid would have — wonderment. Only a little kid with a joyful expression next to the dog would make this picture better.
But just look at this pooch’s face! He is looking at that bubble like it is the most miraculous thing in the entire universe. Even better than a nice stick, treats, or a scratch behind the ears!
When Your Dog Is 100% Broken
There’s nothing quite like a perfectly-timed photo to give a pet owner some sense of closure. In this case, knowing the dog was a very special boy but having no proof. Well, here it is, folks, exhibit A of proof: a dog, or gremlin, running through the wild in search of its human.
The owner can now sleep at night knowing that they weren’t crazy and that their dog is very happy being its crazy self.
Just A Minor Glitch In The Matrix
When it comes to capturing glitches in the matrix, this photo takes home the gold medal. Well, it was either a glitch, or Inspector Gadget got a new canine companion to solve mysteries and cases with him.
Either way, this picture is one for the record books. The best part is that these two pooches have no idea they’re comedic geniuses. They’re just having a lovely day at the park with their human.
Dog Or Roadrunner?
Here’s a question for the ages: where in the world did this dog’s front legs go? Either he’s a two-legged pooch, to begin with, or he morphed into a roadrunner, sprinting across the law the minute his human threw the ball across the yard.
He’s super excited about his current state, in any way, no matter if he’s a roadrunner-dog or something else. And for that, he gets many gold stars, treats, and, hopefully, a belly rub from his human.
Hover-Cat Preparing For Liftoff
Cats. They’re known to do odd things like squeezing themselves into tiny bows just because they can. This cat is different, though. Instead of doing the “normal” thing and finding a nice box to call home for the next five weeks, it decided to show how it can take flight.
Nothing like a good old-fashion hover cat to get the mind racing trying to figure out exactly what’s going on with the feline. Answer: just cat things.
OMG, I WON!
This puffy pooch clearly knew the Best in Show competition was over, breaking his cool and calm demeanor when being awarded his gigantic ribbon. And why shouldn’t he? He deserves to be happy and showcase the biggest smile in the world.
His outstanding fur cut, ability to answer commands, and walking around the arena earned him the award. And, he can tell you that there is some hard stuff to master!
Pugs are quite impressionable creatures. So, it only makes sense that this one happens to be very confused about what happened to its human’s face. The poor thing really doesn’t look like it knows what to do about the situation.
Suppose his dad turned into a pug, then who’s planning on feeding him dinner since neither of them can open the container holding the food. Yeah, the confusion makes perfect sense because, to a pug, food equals life.
When Mom Puts Your Best Friend In Jail
This poor dog looks like he was just betrayed in the worst way imaginable. And he has. What type of monster throws all of the stuffed animal toys into the washer at the same time? It’s almost like the human wanted to throw them in a wet and soapy jail!
Well, sir, dog, that’s exactly what your human had to do, unfortunately. Even though this pooch is definitely going to have nightmares of his friends spinning helplessly in the wash, it’s probably for the best.
Hey, The Dog Said No Cats In The Family
Nothing quite says, “I told you I didn’t want siblings,” quite like this picture. The really funny part is that the cat seems to have accepted his fate as the dog’s afternoon snack. It’s very un-cat-like of him!
That is unless he’s waiting at the last moment to completely scare the ears off the dog, leaving him in a puddle of confusion on the floor while he, the cat, reigns supreme over the couch. That would make way more sense.
The Look Of Sheer Terror
This is the look of sheer terror. Obviously, this cat never asked its humans for a dog. And from the utter commitment of biting the dog’s side, it’s safe to say the cat never once in its life thought, “I think I’d like a dog sibling. It might be a fun time.”
Well, if fun is defined as pouncing on said dog sibling, scaring it half to death, and biting him in the side, then, yes, it looks like fun.
Well, There Is Nothing To Do Now But Fall
This pet owner was probably just trying to get a cute picture of their two huskies. Instead, they got a hysterical photo of one dog taking the other completely off its feet. The best part is the husky that’s been taken out has accepted its fate.
His face is so sad, knowing that any second now he’s going to fall very hard onto the snowy ground. That’s what happens when siblings feel like “playing.”
Just A Cat, Screaming At What They See Out The Window
Cats will be cats no matter what is happening or where they are. for this cat, it just so happens to be that time of day where he’s going to scream at whatever happens to be on the other side of the window.
Here’s to hoping it’s a bird or mouse or something similar because this cat is really adamant about scaring it off. Well, it’s either that, or he’s very concerned about something he’s seeing.
And Scientists Say They’re A Descendant Of Wolves
Wolves are considered intelligent species, known for their agility. But not all of its descendants are equal. Take these two, for example. The black and white pooch clearly knows what he’s doing on the rock.
The brown one slipping down the rock, on the other hand, might have had a bit of mixed blood somewhere down the line. If one good thing came from this picture, it’s the fact that he knows he’s about to go for a swim.
Mom Clearly Has A Favorite
This poor dog. He’s falling off the dock, and his mom is holding on to his sibling. Well, clearly, there is a favorite in this household! And the pooch falling into the water knows it, too.
Just look at how he’s waving with his paw in such a “woe is me” fashion. Is he overly dramatic? Probably. But who wouldn’t be overly dramatic if their mom held onto their sibling while they fell into the lake?
Duck-Dog, The Newest Species Of Dog
Here we see a new species of dog. The duck-dog is a pseudo-intelligent animal, not knowing when its ear is flipped backward but lively enough to not really care. This creature also doesn’t consider a frisbee anything other than a beak.
Thankfully, their human decided to snap this picture and freeze the evolution of their pooch for all time. Now, they just need to find another duck-dog, so this one doesn’t feel lonely in a world of normal canines.
Saint Dog Running On Water
There is an age-old saying that people don’t deserve dogs, and this perfectly-timed photo is proof. What other species is able to run on water, aside from that strange lizard? The floppy ears, wagging tail, and need to get to the other side of the pool to their human is so adorable.
Too bad the poor thing probably fell into the water a solid second after this picture was taken. At least he tried.
