Barking mad! To celebrate International Dog Day, FEMAIL shares a selection of hilarious snaps capturing their bizarre – and adorable – antics

  • Social media users from around the world have shared their favourite dog pics 
  • Bored Panda collated some of the most hilarious shots for a gallery 
  • Including a dog thinking a painting was a real-life window, staring out of it
  • Comes as the world celebrates International Dog Day on Friday 26 

Our dogs are like members of our family, always there for us, without judgement and full of unconditional love. 

But they’re also quite hilarious. And social media users from around the world have shared their best photos of their dogs doing the silliest of things, with Bored Panda collating the best posts into a gallery.

While one dog looks totally unimpressed with her new puppies feeding off her, another dog lays flat on the pavement with legs spread out refusing to go home after a walk.

Another post sees a group of dogs swimming and contending with a wave in the ocean, going on to create a magical photograph. 

Here, as the world celebrates International Dog Day, FEMAIL presents some of the best dog posts shared online…
