You have to take them on at least two fun walks a day, they leave their gorgeous fur everywhere AND they chew your trainers. These dads are here to insist that they were right all along when they said they didn't want a dog.

1. This dad who thinks dressing his Chihuahua in tiny baby clothes doesn’t mean anything

Yes, he said he never wanted a dog, just because he now dresses that dog in the clothes he was saving for his first grandchild doesn’t mean that he was wrong…

2. This dad who thinks a photoshoot with the new pup PROVES how much getting a dog was a bad idea

He didn’t want a puppy and he’s taking adorable shots to prove it.

3. This dad didn’t fall asleep WITH the dog, the dog climbed on after he started napping…honest

Yep, nothing to see here, just a little Shih Tzu curling up in the nook of a man’s arm when he’s already fast asleep thankyouverymuch.

4. This dad who doesn’t find his new puppy cute AT ALL

Oh no, that’s not delighted laughter, that’s, um, cries for help!

5. This chap who only walks his dog because he has to

Gosh, walkies are a pain aren’t they? Just ask this guy.

6. This tough guy showing how tough he is whilst showering his dog with, um, tough kisses

He never wanted a dog and he’s gonna prove it by showering this pup with kisses, okay?

7. This dad sees his dog as a handy eye mask for daytime naps.

Yep, just a useful eye mask. That’s all…

All that's left to say is, Happy Father's Day to all the dog dads out there. And don't worry, we see how tough you are even when you're putting pink ribbons in your Chihuahua's hair.
