Dog Owners Share Tricks For Identifying Their Dog In A Crowd

Dogs are as individual as people.

[rebelmouse-image 18348327 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

While all dogs have some traits in common, for the most part, dogs have individual personalities just like humans. When you live with your puppy for a long time, you get to know these traits pretty well. And sometimes that can come in handy.

For instance, like when themegnugget asked:

If your dog was in a large crowd of dogs of the same breed, how would you be able to tell which one is yours?

Dog owners had the answers quickly.

No Interest

[rebelmouse-image 18346607 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Throw a ball.

He would be the one left standing there after all the other dogs had taken off after it.

Jokes

[rebelmouse-image 18348336 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Call his name and look for the one who thinks it's hilarious to run in the opposite direction.

Don't Look At Me

[rebelmouse-image 18348337 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

My dog flips his sh-t when I make "binoculars" with my hands and look at him with them. Howls and barks and tries to attack me. He absolutely hates binoculars. I have a video of it somewhere. Two seconds...

Edit: here's the vid. I just remembered I answered a similar question about a year and a half ago and posted this vid as a response. Hope you like it.

The Carpet

[rebelmouse-image 18348338 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Put them all on carpet. My dog is strangely addicted to licking carpets and will do it for up to an hour at a time. She's my dumb dumb. Not the smartest dog in the world, but we like her.

Jealousy

[rebelmouse-image 18345991 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Just pet another dog. He'd be so jealous that he'd knock me over getting me away from the interloper.

Menace

[rebelmouse-image 18348339 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Send in an elderly woman with a bad hip wearing white jeans into a damp muddy field holding her phone in one hand and a coffee in the other...

Monty the ill mannered Golden assassin would make himself known in the first 3 seconds...

The Silliest Doberman

[rebelmouse-image 18348340 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

He'd be awkwardly and goofily bowing down and frolicking about, attempting 8 different games of tag in a probably otherwise regal looking crowd of other Dobermans.

Head Press

[rebelmouse-image 18348341 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

We have a special 'hug' I call a head press, I kneel on the ground and she stands there gently pressing the top of her head into my lap, wagging her tail as I pet her and tell her she's a good girl. I've never 'hugged' another dog like that and I work with dogs every day. She also has a unique scar which would be pretty foolproof.

Biiiiiiig Puppy

[rebelmouse-image 18348342 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

If I sit cross-legged in his field of vision, he will race to my lap. He is not a puppy anymore. Send help.

Peter Pan

[rebelmouse-image 18348343 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Look for the idiot trying to attack his own shadow.

Butt Wiggle

[rebelmouse-image 18347847 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

The one who's butt wiggles in a circle instead of back and forth when they get excited

That Guilty Look

[rebelmouse-image 18348344 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Yell her name and then immediately start running in the opposite direction, she'll be the first by my side wondering where we are running to next. Or I would loudly say "OUCH!" And she'll come running over to protect me. Or I'll yell "IN YA BED" and she'll be the most guilty looking dog in the place.

Woodwinds

[rebelmouse-image 18348345 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Start playing harmonica or clarinet. Both my dogs lose their sh-t and start howling.

Or, yell out what I say each time I feed them, "sitting nicely". If they don't come when called, I say it because then they think I have food.

Collie Collie Oxen Free

[rebelmouse-image 18348346 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

The rough collie with the unusually short coat, doofy notched ear, and speckled legs who would already be walking backwards into me wanting her butt scratched.

Blockhead

[rebelmouse-image 18348347 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Just stand there and wait for the block head to ram other dogs out of the way.

My dog enjoys headbutting other dogs, people, couches, doors, walls, ect.

Huskies

[rebelmouse-image 18348348 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

It would be a crowd of husky's sooo none of them would listen. Or I could not get a word is because of all the howling. Mine might be the dummy eating rocks in the corner.

Special Rock

[rebelmouse-image 18348349 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

My dog has carried around the same rock every day for a year because one time I sat him down and told him that it was a special. He LOVES THAT ROCK. All I would have to do is point to it and say, "Is this your special rock?!?" and he would flip.

Jealousy Part 2

[rebelmouse-image 18348350 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

Assuming my husband is with me, we'd start kissing. My Nash gets very jealous and possessive of my husband so whenever we get intimate he'll come over and push us away from each other.

Call Frank

[rebelmouse-image 18348352 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

My dog sings whenever Frank Ocean plays so I would blast it on the radio and see which dog starts howling.

I Am Your Owner

[rebelmouse-image 18348353 is_animated_gif= dam=1 expand=1]

My dogs hates when I put on my Darth Vader mask. She bolts away immediately with her tail tucked under. I'd put that thing on.

People Explain Which Lessons Aren't Taught In History Class But Should Be

It's highly believed that it is important to learn history as a means to improve our future.

What is often overlooked is that what is taught in history class is going to be very different depending on where you went to school.

And this isn't just internationally, even different regions of the United states will likely have very different lessons on American history.

This frequently results in our learning fascinating, heartbreaking and horrifying historical facts which our middle or high school history teachers neglected to teach us.

Redditor Acherontia_atropos91 was curious to learn things people either wished they had learned, or believe they should have learned, in their school history class, leading them to ask:

We have light at the end of the tunnel.

So what now?

Where do we go from here?

Normal seems like an outdated word.

How do we get back to normal though?

Is it even possible?

What are reaching back to?

Life pre-Covid.

Those were the days.

If only we could bring them back.

Redditor hetravelingsong wanted to discuss our new normal in this hopeful "endemic" phase. So they asked:

Is there a GOD in the sky?

Life is really hard. Why is that is a big entity is up there loving us?

What if they've been right all along?
