When Twitter user posted a picture of her dog, clearly disappointed after being left alone for a quick trip to the gym and the store, the Internet laughed.
And then the Internet responded with their own disappointed dogs. So many of them.
Look at the pure disdain in that beagle’s eyes. As the owner of a part-beagle, I can tell you I have seen that face before.
David! I love normal people names for dogs. It’s one of my favorite things in the world. David disapproves.
Oh hello there
“Nice of you to show up. Step into my office, please. We have a lot to talk about.”
I love the look on this scruffy dog’s face. It’s like, “Well, well, well, look who decided to join us.”
This pup was angry because it was raining outside, and now she’s looking at her owner like, “Make it stop. Make the rain stop.”
The next one is absolutely perfect.
This is like that scene in Game of Thrones where Cersei has to walk naked through the town while people throw stuff and yell at her, only this is worse.
Puppy dog eyes
This slighted pup can’t even look you in the face right now. She knows she’s cute and is going to get anything she wants now.
“Nice of you to finally join us. Guess I just had to rip your pants to shreds for you to show up. I see how it is.”
The squint is too real. Beagles are some of the most expressive dogs. It’s too much! They’re almost human.
I mean, come on. It doesn’t get much sadder than that.
The next one is a slightly angrier beagle.
The disdain is so pure. The disappointment so tangible. There is no shame like the shame of disappointing your dog.
I love when dogs pose like humans. You can hear them talk. “It’s about time you showed up. I’ve been waiting up for hours.”
Where are you going
The panic in this pup’s eyes! If you’ve ever left a dog home alone, you know this pain.
Look at that formal posture. That stance says one thing and one thing only: “You’re going to have a lot of making up to do.”
If there’s one thing that cats can be, it’s disappointed and angry.
The next one returns us to the land of dogs.
“Back so soon? Oh, uh, no, that’s totally fine. Let me just, um, I just have to make a call real quick.”
Marlo! Marlo may look super cute, but she is almost certainly putting a hex on you right now.
Nice of you to join us
The policies include but are not limited to: I am now allowed on the couch whenever I want, I bark, you give me a treat, and you let me smell your breath at least six times a day.”
It’s like he’s deciding what to do with you. Does he punish you by peeing on the floor? Or does he give in to his baser instinct and just jump in your lap for cuddles?
Come on now
The expression on this dog’s face is priceless. It says, “Oh, you were ‘at work’? Likely story.”
The next pup really peers into your soul.
How dare you?
This dog looks betrayed.
I feel for this tiny pup.
“Don’t even talk to me”
So much shade
Henry’s glance is so devastating! He can’t even be bothered to lift his head up, but he still wants you to know you are on his list.
Some dogs decide that a side glance won’t do, and they give you a more literal manifestation of their anger.
“Oh, who’s that?
“Ah yes, it’s my sworn enemy.”
The next pup is almost too cute to handle.
This is the quintessential “I’m not mad, I’m just disappointed” face, and it hurts so bad.
What a goof!
That face surely can’t stay mad at his owner, can it?
This is maybe the most serious dog I’ve ever seen.
He is not messing around.
This dog is like, “I’m going to be extremely angry at you from the best angle possible.”
We’ll end on a cat because they’re the kings of disappointment in their humans. Dogs at least will forgive you eventually.
