Are you high right now? Why not? Does your company drug test? (If your company drug tests, that really sucks, sorry about that.) You know who doesn’t have to worry about drug testing? Dogs. Yes, unlike everything you’ve been taught to believe about dogs from hard-hitting exposés like A Dog’s Purpose, Cats & Dogs, and The Truth About Cats And Dogs (we’re just going off titles here, but surely you wouldn’t call your movie that without delivering some raw truth bombs about those animals, right?), it turns out dogs just like getting high and chilling out, the same way you do. The recent wave of proof about canine proclivity for hitting the couch and bingeing, like, an eight-hour Star Trek: TNG marathon or something was kicked off by Twitter user @smack_that, who posted evidence of her dog Oscar’s appreciation for the mellower things in life following his surgery to remove seven tumors. The operation was a success, but more importantly, it reminded Oscar that damn, he really likes being high. Just like you, you beautiful stoner.
Not since we woke up from having our wisdom teeth pulled has there been such an expression of contentment on a living creature. The rest of Twitter, always quick to pounce on an opportunity to showcase pictures of pets, was inspired to even greater heights by the addition of drugs into the mix.
Yes, it was a veritable bonanza of stoned animals making the rounds in response to Oscar and his good vibes mentality.
Most importantly, Oscar and his owner remembered one of the cardinal rules of getting super-high: Have a buddy around to keep an eye on you. Even if you’re not in any real danger, what if you want Funyuns? Who’s going to run to the store for you, so you can continue staring intently at nothing in particular? For Oscar, that mate is Chompers.
