6 Reasons Buttface Dogs Do The Buttface Things They Do

There are dogs and then there are buttface dogs. Buttface dogs do what they want, when they want.

And often they can’t even be bothered to own up to it.

But why do buttface dogs engage in buttface-ry? No one really knows. Undeterred, we studied this important question extensively, and discovered several possible reasons for their buttface-dom:

Author’s Note: This article employs the term “buttface” as a verb, although “buttface” can also be used as a noun, adjective or interjection. As in, “Oh, buttface! I forgot poop bags for my buttface dog. He’s definitely going to buttface me on this walk.”

1. Because if they don’t buttface, someone else will!

It’s survival of the buttface-ist out there. And if you’re not the buttfacer, you’re the buttfacee, and no one wants to be that. Trust me.

2. Because to be honest, your dirty underwear tastes soooo gooood!

I have nothing to add to this, except that this buttface dog is clearly enjoying putting his face where your butt goes. Textbook buttface move.

3. Because f—ing with you is really, really fun!

You know how your so-called friends would laugh when your older sibling teased you, and you wondered if you had any real friends at all? Your buttface dog is like that older sibling. It’s so much fun to mess with you. The more you hate it, the more they love it.

4. Because they’re their own dog!

Buttface dogs may be buttfaces, but they’re also independent. A buttface dog marches to the beat of their own drum. Until, you know, they find the drum, rip it to shreds, and wait for you to come home and clean it up.

5. Because payback is a b-tch!

Maybe you dress your dog up against their will. Or you deny them dog treats when they beg nicely. Or you prank them, record the prank, publish the prank on the Internet, and invite the world and all of posterity to laugh at them until the end of days. (Hey, we’ve all done it.) Whatever it is, there’s more than one bad dog in your house. A buttface dog knows this, and thus exacts its sweet revenge with delicious glee and zero remorse.

6. Because they’re buttface dogs!

That’s some classic bulletproof buttface logic right there. A buttface dog is, by definition, a buttface. It will therefore buttface. And you know what? Maybe that’s all we need to know.

So go forth and embrace the buttface. You might as well — it’s not going anywhere.
