'These dogs do Pilates and drink iced coffee': Funny photo of pretentious-looking dogs in turtleneck sweaters inspires hundreds of Twitter users to imagine what they're REALLY thinking

 

  • A photo of dogs wearing knit turtlenecks went viral over the weekend
  • Many social media users are attributing human characteristics to the dogs, imagining that they are wealthy and stuck-up
  • They've joked that the dogs were posing for a fictional Vogue spin-off, Dogue
  • They have also compared them to judgmental soccer moms, rich people who use 'winter' as a verb, and parents who have high expectations

While we can never really know what's going through a dog's head, hundreds of social media users are convinced they can read the minds of a pair of canines in a now-viral photo — and what those dogs are thinking is that they're better than you.

 

On Friday, South African humanitarian Sindisiwe van Zyl tweeted a photo of some proud-looking pups in knit turtleneck sweaters.

 

In a matter of days, hundreds of people had cracked jokes about the dogs, attributing human characteristics to the animals.

 

Most imagine that the posh pets are rich, pretentious, and stuck-up, judging everyone around them and looking down their noses at those who aren't of their class.

 

The funny tweets, which include casting them in a fashion photoshoot and comparing them to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, have spread like wildfire and are attracting thousands of likes.

 

And they're off! Twitter users are attributing human characteristics to a pair of dogs in turtleneck sweaters
Reading their minds: Most thing the dogs look like they're stuck-up and judgemental 
Twinning! One offered a hilariously spot-on photo comparison with a similar snap of Prince William and Kate Middleton
Sounds right: Several imagined what the dogs would be saying if we could understand them
Monied pups: They imagined the dogs are rich and the kind of wealthy people who use 'winter' as a verb, as in, 'We winter in Aspen' 
 

 

This Twitter user imagined them looking down on their son going to Dartmouth over Harvard or Yale 
They imagine them to have particular tastes and eat a lot of avocado toast
Staying away from the riff-raff! They imagine the dogs putting up a fuss over property values and being a 'nice neighborhood'
South African humanitarian Sindisiwe van Zyl, who originally posted the image, imagined them on a shoot for Dogue, a fictional canine Vogue spin-off
Viral: The jokes have spread in a matter of days, earning thousands of likes each
 
Discerning tastes: This man imagines that these dogs do Pilates and drink iced coffee
 

Discerning tastes: This man imagines that these dogs do Pilates and drink iced coffee

Difficult? This one imagines they'd be like people who always have a complaint for the manager 
EW's Dana Schwartz imagined they'd be the bad guys in a snowboarding movie
Across the board, social media users were in agreement that these dogs are fancy
 
Only the best! If any dogs were going to buy organic groceries, it's these dogs
They were also imagined as meddlesome parents who don't want their kids associating with the 'wrong sort'
So smart! Some imagined that these well-dressed pets went to a good college
 
Ruff customers: This man thinks they're likely self-centered and incredibly entitled
'These dogs don’t even bark fam,' wrote one man. 'They speak 4 different human languages, eat at the table with knife and fork and have better credit than all of us'
 
 
The funny comments have been filling up Twitter feeds since Friday
Too funny! Several days later, the jokes are not yet slowing down

@feline groovy-

These were SO good!

We have often talked about a lot of these attitudes!

I especially appreciated the Dartmouth comment!

So funny or rather, too funny!

Off to drink my decaffinated organic tea-NOT! 😂 

Ok that was mean and judgemental-no offense to real tea drinkers!

Merry Christmas to all!🎄
