In a recent Reddit thread, users revealed the shenanigans of their favorite furry friends in what some might think was an attempt to find the world’s most selfish dog.
It all starts with a message from the user u/Icy-Reflection-931 (opens in a new tab)who shared that their dog “completely pretended to fall and hurt herself on her long line in our yard while I was having lunch on the porch…limped in the yard just long enough for me to run over to her to see what was wrong with her.” was wrong, then she bolted on the porch and ripped off 5 pizza rolls at lightning speed.”
According to the OP, however, “she never even got hurt, she just gave me a quick shot.”
Another user, who goes by the name of WillingWeepow, saw their entry rank highly: “I used to have a job where my dog could come into the office with me every day. We had meetings twice a week where we put our chairs in a circle.”
“My dog, who never missed an opportunity to get attention, liked to lie on his back right in the middle of the circle, all four paws on his hips, and squeal his loudest toy on top of the one who was trying to speak.”
One of the cheekiest dogs on the thread has proven to be incredibly cunning as well.
“Mine loves stealing my spot if I get up off the couch. So I get up and get a protein bar and come back and she’s curled up where I was sitting.”
“I throw the bar on the couch next to her and smack her on the butt and say ‘ok move off’ and she gets up, grabs the protein bar in her mouth and throws it across the room. Then watches me as she slowly walks away and lays in the corner,” user CountKristopher shared.
But, dogs don’t get more selfish than this next pup.
Live-Eye explained how their dog “fakes not getting his evening treat if he thinks one of us doesn’t know the other already gave it to him.”
“He never asks for a second treat when we’re all together all the time, but if he puts us alone and thinks we don’t know he’s already gotten it from the other person, he starts his whole routine again. trying to remind us it’s time for his treat. Such a sneaky boy!”
