Why Is Everyone So Obsessed With Dogs When We Need To Be Talking About Giraffes

Can we please, please cool it on the "doggos"?

Posted on

Let me first start this off by saying dogs are great. I have nothing against them.

They're cute, they're loyal, and they can be really useful. I don't really want to touch or cuddle a dog, but standing three feet away from one I can objectively say that they're a GREAT ANIMAL.

They can also be really funny. I love a good dog tweet as much as the next person.

If you've never seen a husky with absolutely no body hair then here you go. Enjoy

Well actually, probably not as much as the next person. Because I've noticed lately that people are fucking OBSESSED with dogs.

Seriously, who has been doing the PR for dogs in the past year??? Give them a big ol' raise because I swear public interest in dogs and puppies has SKYROCKETED.

I get that it's probably because everything else on our planet has turned to shit, and cute, innocent animals will always cheer us up. But if I see someone say "smol doggo🌱" one more time, I think I might lose it.

This brings me to the point of the whole article. If y'all are looking for a perfect animal to distract you from the world burning down around you, you're wasting your time on dogs. What we need to be focusing our energy on is GIRAFFES.

These motherfuckers are the total package: they're cute, they're glorious, and they're hella badass.

They're such strange, gangly creatures that are also (somehow) elegant AF.

Just like dogs, they're perfect at all ages of their life.

And look at what they do when they sleep!! They curl their heads around to rest on their butt pillow.

I'd like to see one of your precious doggos do that.

Even the Very Cool Teens who wrote this list know how cool giraffes are. "Pet a giraffe" features on the Summer Bucket List of 2017... and there is not a dog in sight.

So, next time you want to tweet about a heccin' cute pupper, spare a thought for the forgotten species: giraffes.
