What did we ever do that made us worthy of dogs?

The ultimate companions, dogs can be trained incredibly well. Sometimes, they even pick up our habits.


Twitter user Casey Dickinson shared a video of her dog, Cooper. Cooper seems to have watched too many basketball games with his family, as every time they score a basket, he lets out a cheer.

Conversely, if you miss, he seems less than thrilled.


I'd love to see this pup at a March Madness game.

As Casey's dad throws the toy, Cooper follows it, watching to see where it lands. Landing in the basket earns him, as Casey puts it, a huge howl, whereas missing the shot gets a "disappointed groan".

The video went viral with millions of views.

People have been replying to the video with their thoughts of the very good boy.





Don't worry about Cooper though. He's not letting the fame go to his head.



He is the best dog on Twitter. Just like every dog on Twitter.






Not sure if you noticed, but people sure seem to like sharing photos and videos of their dogs online.

Sometimes we like to challenge them to shove their snoot in a hole, leading to some unexpected results. Other times, a dog can fart, earning a slap from his feline partner.

Whatever the case, we still love these dogs.





Though maybe we should be a little nicer to them. They don't have to experience April Fool's.

Being woken up suddenly is not very good for our health.

Especially for the elderly, it's not something to make a habit of. Sleep interruption can increase blood pressure, cause a worsened self image, and cause a day filled with irritation and confusion.

No one wants to be woken up, but there are definitely some reasons for being woken up that are worse than your alarm clock.

We went to Ask Reddit to find out some of the worst reasons people have been woken up.

People have a habit of excusing crap behavior - honestly because it's often easier in the short term. Long term = flaming dumpster fire.

We live in a time where we are critically re-examining how we pay workers. After a two-year-long pandemic where some low-income and "unskilled" jobs were deemed "essential," we now must put our money where our mouth is.

For too long in the world have incredibly important jobs been overlooked or else outright maligned. Teachers in the USA make some of the least money, career-wise, and have some of the hardest jobs. Dancers pay to put their bodies through hell with no guarantee of paid work after training.

What causes a small town to die?

Honestly, there can be quite a few factors, but perhaps the biggest one is that small towns often lack the upward mobility opportunities that are more available in urban areas.

As a result, many towns around the United States for instance have lost tens of millions of people as their populations seek jobs and opportunities elsewhere.

And what remains of these places can be pretty sketchy.

People told us more after Redditor RadicalizedSnackWrap asked the online community,

"What's a super sketchy US city that we never hear about?"
