Dog Quotes: 25 Sayings Only Dog Lovers Will Understand

Dogs are wise. They crawl away into a quiet corner and lick their wounds and do not rejoin the world until they are whole once more. – Agatha Christie

If you’ve ever tried and failed to teach your dog a new trick, this might make you a little jealous. Sit, stay, down, come, even the simplest tricks can sometimes pose a challenge. And of course this is further complicated by other factors like breed and age.

Meet Scout, a rescued pitbull from Ontario, Canada, whose docile nature is captured beautifully in these hilarious images. Stuff on Scout’s Head is a Tumblr created by Jen Gillen , that – as the title suggests – showcases Scout balancing anything and everything on his head. A paint bucket, a vase filled with flowers, a laptop, and food. Lots and lots of random food. In fact, Scout is so well trained he can balance a mountain of donuts without even trying.

Not too shabby little man.

As you can imagine, Scout eats none of what is placed on his head with all of it eventually ending up back in the fridge. Jen is also taking submissions so if there is something you would like to see him balance, drop her a line.

So with that said, this post is dedicated to all the dog lovers and owners who follow us. In this collection you’ll find some of our favorite funny and cute quotes about dogs, along with some of our favorite photos from Stuff on Scout’s Head.
