Whether you have a dog or just can’t get enough of them, there’s no doubt that pooches sure can be amusing. If you’re ever looking for a way to keep entertained during a road trip, just bring your canine along for the ride. They’re sure to get their head caught into any tiny space they can and give some pretty funny faces to you and the people in other cars. Read on for some fun photos that show just how hilarious dogs can act in the car.
Oh, What A Day
It is just us, or is this dog definitely an elegant human stuck in the body of a canine? We don’t even have posture that good, and we live on two legs, not four. Adding to the dog’s oddly formal posture is its expression.
There’s something about that distant stare out the window that makes it seem like this pooch was just left for a poodle, and is now contemplating how to live life without its soulmate.
Grizzly Bear Alert!
If you’ve ever seen a picture of a shaved animal, then you know they aren’t as cute beneath their furry covering. This image is a perfect example of how shaggy coats can hide the more animalistic side of our furry friends.
The wind is blowing so hard that the dog’s teeth are bared, showing off pointy canines that look rather menacing. We have to admit, though, that there’s nothing scary about the dog’s mouth flapping uncontrollably in the wind.
Yo Dawg, Wassup?
This dog is definitely cooler than any person we’ve ever met in our lives. First of all, is it really using its paw to wave out the window at someone it knows? Then you add in the sunglasses and it’s just too cool for school.
To be fair, any Rottweiler automatically looks like it’s in the top tier of the dog hierarchy. Then you throw on a chain collar, and you may as well give this dog a record deal.
If there’s one pet that knows how to get excited, it’s dogs. They sometimes wag their tail so hard that their whole body gyrates! And we’ve never seen a smile bigger than a dog’s when it’s panting.
But this pooch takes excited to a whole new level. Its mouth is so big it may as well be yawning, and its eyes look like they’re about ready to pop out. As soon as you see that stack of pizza boxes in the passenger’s seat, it all makes sense.
Arm Rest Or Pup Rest?
Is there anything cuter than puppies? It turns out, there is: puppies passed out in weird spots around the car! This one is dangling on an armrest, which has never felt as comfortable to us as this pooch is making it seem.
You can tell that this dog isn’t very spoiled, because it looks like it could get comfortable just about anywhere. We give it an A+ for originality and for not overlooking any opportunity for comfort.
This Is The Right Position
Have you ever noticed that dogs can take quite a while to get comfortable? They need to maneuver their blanket just right and typically like to have their chin propped up on something.
This dog also likes to have its bottom raised, apparently, because its hips are draped over the side of its bed so they stay elevated. It may feel like a nice stretch to the dog, but to us, it looks like a knot waiting to happen.
The Stink Eye
This dog looks like it’s giving the stink eye to someone who just cut him off! Not only is the canine clearly glaring out the window, but it’s also got its paws crossed and is leaning to the side with some serious attitude.
Any dog with that much personality belongs in Hollywood. We can just imagine if a professional actor gave a voice to this sassy canine. It’d be like Homeward Bound, only the driving edition!
The Perfect Size
Like the puppy that was snoozing on the armrest, this little fluffball looks positively adorable snuggled up on the dashboard. It must be warm up there since the sunlight is just above and the engine is down below, as are the vents that may be pumping out warm air.
The best part is looking up and realizing the driver was dealing with some major traffic when this picture was taken. Talk about a therapy dog!
According to the person who posted this photo, the owner had just upped their dog’s walk from 2 miles to 2.5 miles. Judging by the look on this pet’s face, that half a mile really makes all the difference.
It’s like the dog is intentionally trying to look overly exhausted just for the camera. Its eyes are nearly crossed and its tongue is out like a kid who doesn’t want to go to gym class!
I’m Such A Big Dog With My Seatbelt On
I’m a big pup now! You can almost hear this cutie thinking those words as he rides shotgun with his human owner, sitting in the front seat with his seatbelt strapped on his teeny little body. He looks pretty serious about his safety restraints.
We don’t have a clue whether this seating arrangement is any safer but you can’t deny that it’s pretty darn adorable. Especially with the way those rear legs are sticking straight up and the tail’s pointing forward.
Have you ever wondered what was the point of being able to fold down a portion of your back seat when you could just do the whole thing? It turns out, the purpose is to let your dog peek his head through when he’s in the trunk!
In all seriousness, who wouldn’t want to see this adorable view each and every time they check their rearview mirror or turn around while backing up? Distracting as it may be, that sweet face is totally worth it.
I’m Flying Just Like Jack!
As soon as we saw this picture, we couldn’t help but recall the scene in Titanic where Kate Winslett and Leonardo DiCaprio are at the ship’s nose, experiencing it glide over the vast ocean.
That must be the level of exhilaration this dog is feeling as it stands on its owner’s shoulders to get the full sunroof experience. Kudos to the dog owner for being such a skilled driver, because we would not be able to focus with this happy pup right overhead.
I. Wasn’t. Ready. To. Go.
This dog looks like it knows how to hold a grudge. It’s looking out the window with furrowed brows as though it just crossed the point in its life where it’s joined the dark side.
Is a horror movie about to start, or is this dog just upset that it has to leave the park early? We honestly can’t tell for sure, but this doesn’t seem like the kind of dog that turns your frown upside-down.
Who Turned Off The Lights?
A dog getting its head stuck in a box of crackers has got to be a cliche by now, but we’ve yet to see it happen in the back seat of a car! We have so many questions. Where did the crackers come from?
Was the box already open before the dog found it or does he have some serious motor skills? Was it in the back seat or up front with the owner? And is the dog trying to shake off the box or is it still determined to get a cracker?
This Is My Chin Sling
We can’t tell what exactly this dog is resting its chin on, but it seems to be a strap hanging from the ceiling of the car on the passenger’s side. This dog is certainly happy it’s there.
As we mentioned before, there’s something about having chin support that really makes a dog feel complete in their cozy position. Perhaps the reason dogs are able to doze off so easily is because they commit to finding the most comfortable position they possibly can.
I’m Just So Happy!
You’ll notice that almost every single dog on this list looks utterly happy with life. This pup probably tops the list. Just imagine driving down the highway and feeling a soft weight on your arm.
You look down and see this adorable face, eyes closed, and tongue dangling out in pure joy. The best part is that all it probably took was a good walk or a trip to the dog park to get this reaction.
We sincerely hope that the person standing outside the passenger’s side window said “say cheese” just before the dog gave this face. Either the canine is posing because it’s just that awesome, or it has fallen asleep and doesn’t realize the cute face it’s giving.
Either way, we could stare at this picture all day. It’d be a great one to hang up in the office so on those days when you just feel down you could look at this and remember what you’re really working for.
This dog must have some little kids living at home because the only time we’ve seen that look of excitement is when toddlers see their presents on Christmas morning.
The brows are even raised and the dog isn’t panting, it’s just smiling! We again have to wonder if there’s a human in there who decided life as a dog would be the better choice. We wish we were that excited just to go for a car ride.
Hey There, Buddy
This dog looks like a comforting uncle, grandfather, or really any father figure type that’s a jolly old fella. Something about the way the dog has one arm on the windowsill and the other grabbing onto the door frame makes it seem like he’s a human.
It’s like an animated character in one of those cartoons where animals talk and live like humans. He’s just dropping his kid off at school and wishing them a good day.
I Turn Into An Ewok In The Car
This dog’s human nailed it when they said that the pup looks like it turns into an Ewok when it hangs its head out the car window to get a nice fresh breath of air and its fur blows back in the wind.
For some reason, any dog-in-car photo is made even better with the “Objects in mirror are closer than they appear” notice, too. Like, just how much closer can this little Ewok be?
