Bomb has been planted💣

Marking territory, I’d guess. That’s what it is when I do it, anyway.
Once,my husky had a piss off with a Husky pup on a tree. Back and forth 3 or 4 times until the pup took a shit like this on the tree. He definitely won that tree.
I don’t think I could have witnessed this without dying of laughter.
Go to dog parks, there's always something hilarious going on
Is it weird going to a dog park without a dog..?
It's significantly less weird than going to a playground without a kid
What about going to a women bathroom without a woman?
STOP DOWNVOTING THIS POOR MAN HE DOESNT DESERVE IT
I knew what I was going into, I'm prepared.
Just don't tell kids you lost your puppy and need help catching it.
Idk I'm still waiting for the bomb to explode.
My dog loves nothing better than a random human at the dog park. It's happened a few times and I swear he realizes he can have all their attention.
some people are saying no. some people are saying yeah. idk whenever i go i always see some solo people and some larger groups. i bring my dog and gravitate towards the groups and chat with some people while we play fetch or something with our pups and let them run around together. ive met some really cool strangers and some really cool dogs.
id say if you wanted to go i would just find the socialable people and start a chat. if theyre already talking to strangers, i dont think theyd mind one more. i know i wouldnt.
Probably depends if it’s an actual park that has a dog area, or if it’s only a park for dogs
One of the dog parks in downtown Philly is underneath an elevated walkway, and people without dogs go up there and stand at the railing to watch all the doggos playing. I think it's great, like a built-in observation deck!
Kinda, yeah... Just hang outside the fence
Like a weirdo. :D
Yes it is haha
Funny, I just found out about a nice one near me and I look forward to going when the weather permits. I love being around dogs, just don’t have the energy to care for one.
They’re also *expensive.* Like really, *really* expensive. So expensive it’s turned me off to the idea of having children entirely. 100% worth it though
(Source: I adopted a 9 year old dog a few years ago lol)
I think I found my next answer for when people ask me why I don't want kids "because I want to have a dog, I prefer them and they are nicer anyway"
Edit : I forgot "also I can't afford both"
Based and responsibility-pilled.
Hah. You've got me wondering what the antonym of based is. Trebled?
One time my ex took our dog to the dog park and he wouldn't stop shitting.
Like he would waddle while squatting and just shit.
He doesn't go to dog parks much anymore.
Did your husband find a good Gastroenterologist?🤣
You're the proud dog parent of a winner. Nobody can ever take that away from you.
My trio will do this over a blade of grass. This is a regular occurrence.
Yea, I totally agree, it’s m-wait what?
That explains why my dog does it :(((( I’m pretty sure he was in a cage his whole life before he was rescued by animal control and the police :(
If it makes you feel better, my old dog did it when he ran out if pee.
You joke, but my dad ACTUALLY does piss around the borders of our land (only an acre) to mark out what is his. He figures the other animals will stay away from the yard and his cat if they smell it.
I'm REALLY glad we live in the woods.
An acre? Dude drinks a LOT of water (or alcohol 😜)
Good to know others do that too.
I've know people, guy people, that would urinate around the garden to keep the deer away but nothing like an acre. Cat dads.
wait a second...
You can’t just poop on someone’s fence and claim it’s now your house!
Some dogs poop like this when they've been accustomed to being in a kennel for too long. They poop between the bars to keep it out of their area.
Source: I used to work at an animal shelter.
That’s actually really sad
It is indeed.
What does it mean when my dog braces himself with one leg up? He’ll find a bush or a tree, lift one leg up, awkwardly brace it against the structure and do his business. Not all the time, but enough that people ask me what the fuck my dog is doing.
Some dogs are just heckin weird.
My dog does that too! Not all the time, but he looks like he's doing yoga when he shits lol!
Mine too 😂
Show us a video :0
“Honey? Is the neighbor recording a video of his weird dog taking a dump?”
“Seems that way.”
“Are the kids inside?”
I'm actually impressed. Really. It goes to show that dogs have a higher degree of spacial awareness, but also maybe lacking a certain degree of advanced empathy that they'd shit in their neighbour's kennel
If you were forced to shit in your cell or your neighbors which would you pick?
Depends on what we each had for dinner I guess
My cousin has a chihuahua that does this that has never seen a kennel a day in his life. He’s just a weirdo. I have seen him balance a turd on a barbed wire fence.
I think they have the same "origin". The dogs don't want to live near their poop. In a kennel, they'll poop through the bars. A wire fence also works to separate them from their feces. My dog poops in the corner of the yard opposite from the house.
I wish my dog had this habit.
He will literally poop anywhere, and 50% of the time he steps in it either right after or the next time I let him out.
I have to pick it up immediately, and watch him when he's going to make sure he doesn't step in it.
Imagine taking a shit then immediately stepping in it lmao your dog must really be in Lala land when he’s doing his business
He really is. He's always got his nose in the air sniffing while doing anything.
He also gets his front feet in weird positions sometimes when peeing and will literally pee all over his own feet.
My dog does this cause he's just a wierdo. Poops in bushes sometimes too and leaves christmas ornaments.
I love weird animals
Me too except the part of diffusing their bombs.
I had a dog like this too, he always pooped in bushes
Same, my pup loves to poop in the bushes but that's much more normal than how he used to poop. Mini story time: We used to have him poop on the side of our gravel driveway. The whole setup is a bit rustic so the driveway is just marked by a little row of 5x5 wooden block planks, the other side of which drops/dips lower into a small water drainage area grown over with various flora. At first he was good about just going to the edge of the gravel next to the wooden planks and pooping, but over the winter when the snow made it harder for him to find the line he got really, really finicky about his pooping process. He started trying to figure out how to straddle the wood or snow hump, and by spring he had worked his way up to always having to PERCH himself ON the plank and basically poop with his bum overhanging the gravel and his front half teetering over the little drainage area, which he would only do after testing a few different areas, losing either his interest or balance on the wood before moving on. He actually would rely on the tension in the leash to stay balanced so if we accidentally let too much tension out he would sometimes lose his balance lol . We got tired of this and have started walking him across to the trees, and have found he really likes to wander a couple feet in and drop em. He still takes forever to decide on just the right plant to shit on.
Too much coffee?
Lol. I know you're just making a joke but cannot help the obligatory "actually, coffee is toxic for dogs". (Another story!:) I found this out when this very same pup chewed up one of my used keurig pods, and as new puppy owners we googled whether it was bad and next thing you know I was on the phone Animal Poison Control, who basically take down all the information, then cross reference it against statistics in their database before telling you whether you need to go to the vet. Luckily a single used pod was fine for a pup his size, especially since he was more interested in trying to chew the plastic rather than the coffee grinds. Anyways.
Ugh my dog loves to lay eggs in bushes and leave me picking shitskabobs off the twigs with a plastic bag.
Never been in a shelter or spent much time in a crate. He’s just special. It doesn’t help that he has a fluffy neck and long floofy tail. It’s a little disconcerting how much the silhouette looks like a chicken when he’s squatting over a nice dense bush.
I may never be able to say it the right way again
Username checks out?? But like on the opposite side of the spectrum.
I am now very angry at the humans who would do this to a dog
Yeah humans are pretty wack.
I adopted a puppy mill dog some years ago. Didn’t know how to walk on grass or climb stairs. Just churning out cute puppies was her only job until she couldn’t do it anymore, then they dumped her. She had every parasite plus Heart worm & mammary tumors. I only had her 6 months but she was loved & treated like a Queen for all of those 6 months.
All the good in the world to you fellow human.
I just adopted a dog and he poops like this. I didn't know his former owners kept in a kennel. It's really sad.
I take him out 2-3 times a day and he basically has free roaming in the house. He on occasion pees in the house, which is weird because we take him out often enough.
My dog has never spent time in a kennel aside from our move to and from Hawaii. He loves shitting on random stuff. Wall, fence, plant leaves, a stick, traffic cone, etc.
I theorize he’s bored and this is a chance for him to creatively express himself.
"I call this one *Still Life in Traffic Cone and Processed Dog Food*."
2-3 times is not enough for some dogs to go to the bathroom as much as they need to. Obviously age is a huge factor but individual dogs just have different clocks like we do. But I will say, if you just adopted him, it takes a pretty long time to adjust so hopefully he figures it out! I've seen variations of this rule a few times, seems like a nice very general rule of thumb:
On the other hand, my dog barely spends time in crates but just really likes to poop right up next to fences. I think he feels secure with his exposed back to a wall, even if it’s chain link
Sometimes they eat it instead. :(
My rescue dog does this but he spent 5 years on a chain attached to the doghouse. I was thinking that it's because he had limited space to move so he wanted to poop as far as possible. No idea if it's good explanation.
Thank you. I was just looking for the reason some dogs would do that
omg, how sad.
I’ve heard they do this when they need their anal glads expressed - the pressure from the surface reduces discomfort.
I had a Jack Russel that did this regularly and it baffled us. Only a year or so ago did I learn why she used to do it. Apparently if dogs poop like this, it’s a good sign that they were usually kept in a tight cage for long periods of time at some point in their early lives as they adapt this method of pooping in order to poop outside of the cage. Before we rescued her, that Jack Russel was a kept as a pure breed breeding dog in a cage, so the explanation lines up.
Dogs that grew up in kennels tend to have this behavior, keeps their poop off the floor away from their feet in the cages.
If it's not on the ground, you don't have to pick it up!
too smart for reddit, sir
My Shibe does this sometimes too. What’s that about?
Likely territorial marking. Mine is a crazy marker, especially at dog parks/other places where lots of dogs do to. He won't pay attention to anything else until he walked the entire perimeter and peed just a little drizzle at a time and pooped everywhere. He would squat up to like 10 times, even when there's nothing left. He poops on tree trunks, bushes, fences. Gotta get his scent as high as possible!
Trying for Leaderboard
This comment really deserves a lot more than 14 upvotes.
That makes so much sense. I can’t believe I didn’t even consider it. Thanks :)
My shiba does the same thing
Someone further up said that dogs that have been left in crates for too long will do this out of habit because they learned to poop between the bars of the crate to keep from soiling their space. That’s actually the only explanation that sounds plausible.
I got him when he was about 5 or 6, and I don’t know that much about his early life. Most of the time he poops normal? I’m disappointed that this mystery isn’t as clear cut as marking
My dog does this and spent about 2-3 weeks in a crate and it wasn’t until his testosterone kicked in (10 months) that he started doing this ( months after that brief crating ) so I think it’s more a marking territory and it goes with the idea of why they cock their leg- it’s all to mark as a taller dog.
> why they cock their leg- it’s all to mark as a taller dog.
That explains why the Pomeranian I had liked to do handstands when he peed.
My dog also always tries to poop as high up as he can. So annoying when it rolls down and hits his feet which I then have to clean.
shibes are neurotic little freaks
My Shiba does that too. Wonder why they like to plant their butt and shit on the walls/fences like that?
Mine used to like chain link fences. Made it impossible to clean up after a couple times.
So strange. My shiba never did this and now I am fining out it is pretty common.
Is that what Tom hanks referred to as a sticky bomb?
Materials differ slightly but the methods remain the same.
Well, the little dude ain’t wearing socks anymore…
"its a bomb that sticks, a sticky bomb."
It's not a bug, it's a *feature*
“Terrorists Win” - because I ain’t cleaning that up.
I can hear this clear as day from the R6S announcer
Wait, R6? Wouldn't that be the CSGO announcer? Or maybe I just haven't been paying enough attention in Siege
It’s engrained in us…
Wait… you are NOT supposed to poop like that? I owe my neighbors an apology.
And to think that all this time I've been annoyed they were rude and never returned the gesture.
Proper pooping protocol:
I love the way he makes his getaway, he looks so amused as if he said to himself 'ok, enough mischief for today'.
Most likely marking territory. Possibly needs anal glands expressed. Pressure from the wall could be alleviating internal pressure, making it easier or more comfortable to poop.
That second one is a guess and as far as I'm concerned unlikely. Dogs do weird things when they are uncomfortable so I'm not entirely eliminating it as a possibility.
I was thinking anal glands too, but there's a surprising amount of fellow shibe owners in here whose dog does it too. Sus if you ask me
Very plausible. This type of activity might be worthy of a vet call either way, haha.
C4 has been placed. Breaching!
Why why why why
That's a shitty thing to do.
is that dogecoin?
Lmao am I the only one imagining the csgo sound? 😂
CT here. Can confirm
That's advanced level shit!
Thinking some training might be in order!
Just like what I do in the Walmart bathroom
This gives me 007 Goldeneye remote mine vibes for some reason.
Why no sound
I have a shibe and he always fucking does this
I'm getting one soon.. any advice? 😅
Socialize them well. I didn’t do the best job on that. Be prepared to walk it at least twice a day, and don’t expect them to cuddle you on your own accord. They do it on theirs
*You slick Motherfucker*
no this is r/animalsbeingjerks
Last time this was posted, somebody said it was a sign of the dog previously being in an abused household where they were likely in too small a room or something.
My pup has been with me all my life and loved like my own child, he poops like this pretty often. He definitely likes to poop against things more than not. He's just weird.
What a good boy
Edd mounted let them kam
My dog does this too!
Bomb has been defused
Mine did that to my dining room wall when I first brought him home. Thrilled I was, I tell you. Worse was a few weeks later when he dropped one in my floor heating vent. In January. I come home to the smell of shit cooking. I had to turn off the heat, let everything cool down, and disassemble it to get it out. It’s a wonder I kept him, but he turned into a great dog.
My doggo has the same habit. At least not always.
This is so absurd and random and hilarious.
Quit being a playbaby
the best planting of a C4 i have ever seen
mf popped a sticky mine. what a legend
What’s that dog’s name- Phil McKraken?
That is talent - he even manages to make it stick!
Homeless folks aka urban outdoorsmen can do that too
Tom Cruise: Light the fuse.
…Theme music begins…
“You didn’t see shit”
What a cheeky little shit
My dads dog do this. Especially if there is a tree stump. He likes to leave them on a display so everybody sees it.
How the actual fuck did that dog do that 😂
Now that's just rude
In Germany, we call that "SCHEIẞ DIE WAND AN" and I think that's beautiful <3
Territory. The real estate is ours!
Best CoD mode
Lmao this dog is diabolical. There's a pup I know who purposely peels on ppl. He's gotten me twice smh. 😂
I’m crying I’m laughing so hard
What the dog doin
Oh fluffy noooooooooo
I have an explanation for this one! Or at least the case for one dog I know.
I had a friend with a puppy from a puppy mill. She would always poop on walls, even today. The puppy mill living conditions are absolutely horrible. Often times the kennel would be so full, the puppies and dogs learned to poop out of the openings in kennels so they wouldn't have to sleep in it
Counter Terrorists Win
My old labradore/rottie mix used to do this. Mind you the size difference was tremendous…
My dog has been trying to achieve this for the last 14 years. He just hasn't found the right spot to do it in though, I guess. No matter how high he hikes his butt up against something, the poop still hits the ground. He would be so jealous if he saw this.
More like r/animalsbeingjerks lol
Imagine the maintenance person who comes along and sees that afterwards. "How the fu...??"
I had a ferret a few years back that did this on my apartment wall! It was so nasty, and the little guy just scampered off.
Rogue Spear dog
I have an asshole pug that does this on occasion. None of the others have ever done this and I cant figure out what compels him to do this.
Its called leveling up... who has the highest poo wins...ready... go !
