If dogs could talk … and take selfies

Who doesn’t love scrolling through funny dog photos and tongue-in-cheek dog memes? The only thing more entertaining would be if dogs could take selfies. Imagine what your poodle might post while lounging around the house. Or the shot your huskie might take with his buds when you weren’t looking.

Well, imagine no more! We asked AI to envision these selfie scenarios (an excellent use of artificial intelligence, if you ask us), and the results are howl-arious.

Throwin’ it back to when I auditioned for Star Wars

Did you know that Affenpinschers like me can pass for an Ewok? The resemblance is legit! Plus, as a dog that doesn’t shed much, I don’t leave much fur behind in my costume. #ewoks #affies #thebarkside #hireme

First day on the Beagle Brigade!

We’re not just irresistibly cute dogs with floppy ears! I’m a member of the Beagle Brigade, a team of highly trained Beagles employed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture to sniff out prohibited plants and animals that can potentially carry harmful diseases to the U.S. #in-fur-mationdog #thenoseknows

Paws’d for a boot-camp break with my new recruits

I’m a Belgian Malinois—strong, loyal and wicked smart. Plus, I just happen to be one of the best guard dogs around to protect your family. #classvibes #bootcampbuddies

When you’re the star witness, you dress for the part

You can train a dog to do many things, but my Bloodhound nose-tracking skills count as real evidence in some courts of law. BTW: I can’t spill the tea yet, but Netflix is courting me to be in a documentary. #testify #sniffdetective

Rockin’ the red carpet like a boss

How ’bout a round of appaws? As a Boston terrier, I’m the most sophisticated and distinguished of all the black-and-white dog breeds, after all. Just being honest! #glamgoals #blacktie

Poolside is my best side

This Chihuahua is content to keep her pretty paws on dry land and scroll through Instagram while lapping up a Starbucks puppuccino. #poolsideglam #chillinchihuahua

Loafing around with my dough boys

I love taking cute Corgi pics with my besties! What I really wanted was a pic of me with my famous “Corgi loaf,” but Pumpernickel nixed it. #corgiloaf #zerocarbloaf

I’m not stealing cheese—I’m collecting my cheese tax

Everyone knows Labrador retrievers are one of the easiest dog breeds to train … but I can’t “leave it” when it comes to cheese! #cheesetax #sneakysnacker

Savin’ lives and breakin’ hearts

Can’t all dogs swim? I don’t know, and I doubt the cute Chihuahua sunning herself next to me can, but as a Portuguese water dog, I live for swimming. #doggypaddle #lifeguardlife

So, this one followed me home. Can we keep her?

And you thought Rottweilers were scary and mean! I’m actually a very affectionate dog breed and lovey-dovey with my human and furry family members.

Rollin’ with this squad till our paws fall off!

What can I say? Huskies are driven by wanderlust, and we love to howl and party together. So you’d better keep an eye on us or we’re all gonna Houdini-it out of our backyards and meet up when you’re not looking! #escapeartist #packlife

No cavities!

I gotta uphold the Samoyed rep for the best friendly doggo smile, so I let my dog dad brush my teeth. (Also, I get a treat after!) #doggysmile
