Dogs secretly chuckle to themselves as they watch their owners pick up their crap in poo bags, according to new research.
The results of a study involving 20 dogs and their owners carried out by the University of Central Wales was announced yesterday.
It revealed that:
- Dogs like to wait until they have an audience before dropping their guts. They like to wait until they are outside someone else’s house, preferably with its inhabitants in full view
- Dogs secretly chuckle to themselves as their owners are struggling to pick up their shit in a flimsy plastic bag
- Dogs prefer dumping messy turds to test their owner’s decision-making abilities in attempting a pickup
Rover the Dog told WalesOnCraic:
“I’ve seen cats curling one out – they tend to mop up after themselves which is rather polite. But us dogs like to have a laugh so we wait until the most inconvenient time to crap – if could be that our owner is on the phone or as we are crossing a busy road. The messier the better. When we meet other dogs, we then like to talk to each other about what a muppet our owner is picking up our shit.”
