Whenever we need love, support, comfort, we can always turn to our dogs. But we can also count on them when we need to laugh.
They are masters of making us feel better. But how do they manage to make us laugh every single time?
Well, our dogs are not the most graceful creatures, and no matter how old they are, they love having fun. And having fun often implies being derpy.
The widely popular online community of r/AnimalsBeingDerps is the place where people can share their furry friends' derpy moments, and it's absolutely adorable. We have selected 50 of the best photos, and you are going to love all the derpiness.
Some breeds are more popular than others. “Breeds such as Cockerpoos and Labradoodles are now some of the most popular due to the combination of desirable factors, both genetically and aesthetically.” As a result, “it adds to the cute factor and people's interest in those specific breeds.”
Why are these pics so popular? "The reason that pictures and videos of dogs are so popular online is because there's rarely anything controversial about a well-looked-after pooch," Salman Haqqi, senior pet insurance expert, explained. He added that "content often goes viral because it evokes emotions from the masses and pictures and videos of dogs simply make people feel happier when they're watching them."
The number of pet influencers has increased dramatically in recent years, creating a new industry. We've all come across some dog-influencer, which is a dog "that has a large following on social media platforms such as Instagram, TikTok, etc."
"Obviously, they've had help from their respective owners," Salman said and added: "but they're accounts people engage with, either because they can relate to having their own furry friends or just enjoy 'canine content' vicariously, without owning a dog themselves."
