It’s not a new trick, but this sort of dog-human merging always seems good for a laugh, and it clearly was for the guys who made this video.
A German shepherd named Odin is the star. That’s his head poking through the shirt collar, gobbling up the peanut butter being fed to him by the human hands coming out of the jacket.
The video was posted March 25 and is already nearing half a million views.
Entitled, ”Odin Eating Like a Person,” it’s a simpler version of “Two Dogs Dining in a Busy Restaurant,” which has 18.3 million views on YouTube. Here it is again:

We conclude today’s series on dancing dogs with a non-dancing one — a pug who seems not the least bit inspired by Chopin’s “Minute Waltz.”
Not everyone knows this — unless they have been classically trained, read Camille Bourniquel’s riveting (I’m guessing) biography of Chopin, or visited Wikipedia — but the composer got the inspiration for the waltz as he watched a small dog chase its tail.
The little dog, named Marquis, belonged to French novelist George Sand.
(Sand, despite being named “George,” was a woman. “The Minute Waltz” despite being named “Minute,” generally lasts about two minutes — “minute,” in its case, being used to mean small.)
Chopin initially named the piece “Valse du petit chien,” or “The Little Dog Waltz.”

Next, we present what appears to be a shepherd mix who’s ready for a night at the Roxy.
This one’s short and sweet, as should be the case with techno music, which is written by robots who have been programmed to give us all headaches.
Fortunately, this dog, after feeling the beat for a few seconds, decides to move on.
Here’s a relatively recent addition to the many videos on YouTube about dogs who have mastered indoor plumbing.
This black lab can use the toilet for both number one and — though it’s a close call, bouncing in off the rim – number two.
And, unlike some of us, he (or she) seems to always remember to flush.
Got to admire this little fellow’s persistence.
The video was posted on YouTube by Peaceloveandpitbulls.org, which saves dogs from kill shelters in Las Vegas.
A lot of viewers of this video suspect there’s trickery at work, but German musician and dog trainer Schlauwauwau says her two golden retrievers are neither scammers nor musical geniuses — just dogs.
And dogs, though perhaps best known for their noses, have some pretty impressive ears as well.
You can see other videos of her musical dogs here.

In honor of Barney, former President George W. Bush’s Scottish terrier, who passed away last week — and Scotties everywhere – we present … the Scottie Pinwheel.

Even sleeping dogs can be controversial.
Bizkit — possibly the most viewed sleeping dog ever — carried on to such extremes in her sleep that many, including her owners at one point, suspected she might have something seriously wrong with her.
Among the episodes her owners videotaped was one of Bizkit flailing on the floor, getting up, and running into a wall — all seemingly in her sleep.
Some viewers found that funny, some did not. Some comments on the videos urged her owners to get her treatment, and speculated she might have a neurological disorder.
Some commenters even suggested she was in need of an exorcism.
According to this feature on Bizkit on Animal Planet (below), Bizkit’s owners — in addition to getting her a sleep helmet — did get her medical attention.
They say their veterinarian told them nothing was wrong with Bizkit and that she was simply sleepwalking.

We interrupt our regular Monday “Sleeping Dogs” feature to present some singing dogs.
For your Christmas Eve enjoyment, here are Crooning Cody and Singing Sierra, who have appeared here before, and also once made it on Anderson Cooper’s show.
They belong to Adam Yamada-Hanff, a friend of mine in Baltimore and proprietor of the website singingdogs.net.
“I have started to record a few special and unique versions of classic Christmas songs,” Adam informs me. “We are still working on a couple currently but we decided to start off with the well known classic, ‘Rudolph the Rednose Reindeer’ since that was requested via email by a fan of the singing dogs.
“While I was playing the song I started laughing, since it was just too funny not to laugh! Even after playing with Cody and Sierra for awhile it is still very hard not to laugh when they are both singing loudly together.”
Here they are performing “Oh Christmas Tree”:
Adam and his family work with the National English Shepherd Rescue, Ltd.
As for our sleeping dogs, they’ll return next Monday.

They say dogs don’t have as many facial muscles as we do, and therefore are limited in their facial expressions.
A look at this sleeping boxer would seem to indicate otherwise.
Sleeping with eyes open, tongue out, and amid a full throttle snore, he manages to make more faces than Jim Carey on … whatever it is he’s on.
