He’s making a list, and checking it…well, let’s just say these dogs should have thought twice about being naughty instead of nice. Santa Claus may be coming to town, but some of our canine companions are likely to find a lump of coal in their paw-shaped stocking. These dogs are dealing with the discovery of their less than stellar behavior—and we’re getting behind those guilty eyes to speculate what they’re thinking:
Fine, you caught me rooting around in the garbage. Let’s try to keep a lid on that, okay?
I can neither confirm nor deny that I sampled any of those delicious cookies. Or that melt-in-your-mouth frosting. Or the sprinkles still sticking my tongue.
I was going to hide and avoid getting into trouble. Then I thought: whatever.
You want to know who left the smelly “present” on the kitchen floor? I won’t lie: he did it.
Don’t blame me. The sock monkey started it. I just finished it.
They see the mess, but if I stay reeeally still maybe they won’t see me. That’s it. That’s it. Seems to be working…
What do you mean, I made a mess? You heard the forecast this morning: high chance of snowfall. Case closed.
Go on, punish me. Holler at me. Anything else! Just stop giving me that tragic look of disappointment, I can’t stand it.
This bag getting filled means you’re leaving for the day, which results in less attention for me. Problem solved.
I don’t see how I can communicate my shame any more clearly. Can I still get a present this year? How about pets? I’ll settle for pets.
Not What It Looks Like
Seriously, there was this groundhog, and…long story short, I took care of it. Oh, and it’ll be an early spring.
Don’t you “good dog” me. It’s not okay, I know what I did. Just slide a food bowl under the desk and leave me be.
Check Out My Demo
What? You said you hated this wallpaper. I’m just helping expedite your project. You’re welcome.
Shower and a Prayer
I feel so dirty. Are you listening up there, big guy? Help them forgive me and I promise to be a good dog forever.
Did I Misunderstand?
“Supervise the cat…terrorize the cat.” You hear how similar those sound, right? It’s easy to get confused.
I have never seen that shoe before. Those teeth marks could belong to any dog. They might be human. You can’t prove anything.
A Shining Example
You said you liked Kubrick films: heeeeeeere’s doggy! Sigh, everybody’s a critic.
I said no eye contact! Don’t admit to anything. We’ll get out of this if we just stick together.
But I AM a naughty dog! Two more inches and I’d show you. It’s the thought that counts, right? “As a dog thinketh in his heart…”
Toy With Emotions
It’s like taking candy from a baby. Cue tears in 3…2…1. There we go.
This isn’t what it looks like. Seriously, if you post that picture my career in canine politics is ruined. Can’t we make a deal?
You sent me to bed without dinner. What did you expect?
Big Trouble, Small Package
Once I started, I figured I’d just go for the record.
You’ll get no apologies from me, human. Naughty and pround!
Jedi Mind Trick
This isn’t the naughty dog you’re looking for. He can go on about his business. Move along…move along…
Even if they’re not as innocent as we’d like to believe, it’s hard to leave our four-legged friends on that naughty list for long. Despite all the misbehaving caught on camera, I suspect puppy dog eyes and sheepish looks will still manage to garner a gift or two. Tell Santa to go easy on your dog this year. Just make sure they don’t eat the big guy’s milk and cookies!
