Dogs do unexplainable things. But when they do, we still say “aww!” and take a picture. Then, we can’t help but share those adorable photos all over the internet. But the silliest and most entertaining images are the ones where the dogs seem to be “malfunctioning.” The ones where dogs are sitting weird or acting almost human-like.

So, the internet has blown up with photos of dogs acting in bizarre manners. Each image begs the question, “what’s wrong with your dog?” But of course, nothing is wrong; they’re just being adorable. Check out these 21 dogs acting silly in hopes of going viral.
