Best Dog Meme of 2016: This One Will Make You Cry
I have a pomeranian-chihuahua mix I adopted from a local shelter last year. Her name is Chloe, and she has a head tilt, underbite, and generally hates other dogs, kids and men in weird hats. She's also my favorite being on the planet.
Naturally, I find everything that she does absolutely adorable. Running to greet me when I come home? So cute. Doing a dance for her treats? Precious. Cuddling up on my lap when I'm at my computer? Aww.
The single sweetest thing about her, however, is that whenever she's passed out on my bed, on my chair or in a dark corner of my apartment, she's grinning. She's cheesin' real hard. At first, I thought this was because she was dreaming of chasing pigeons or gnawing on her favorite antler.
According to Harvard Medical School Clinical and Evolutionary Psychologist Dr. Deirdre Barrett, that's not quite true.
"Humans dream about the same things they're interested in by day, though more visually and less logically," Dr Barrett tells People.
"There's no reason to think animals are any different. Since dogs are generally extremely attached to their human owners, it's likely your dog is dreaming of your face, your smell and of pleasing or annoying you."
And that, folks, is how the best meme of all time was born.
