Cute and Funny Dog Pictures

On the Front Porch

We hope you enjoy our collection of cute and funny dog pictures. Nothing better than a sleepy big dog nestled by the front door or sitting proudly watching over its domain. Whether you have a dog or just love 'em like we do, you'll enjoy these dog pictures.



Who doesn't love big dogs, little dogs, and lazy canines? And what better place to showcase our canine friends than on the front porch. In fact, most of pets will tell you the front porch was made just for them.

My Dog and His Secrets on the Porch

Reprinted as Received by Freddie Bradshaw

Like many I had dreams of an image of a sunset that goes down over my house and on the porch there's me with my wife and a tired dog that's sleeping. When things actually turned out the way I wanted to understood why that dog sits on the porch.

I have a Golden Retriever that is interested about virtually everything. He sniffs and investigates everything that seems exciting to him.

Which is a good thing, it's good to learn more about your environment, especially if you're a dog. But when I see him in the evening lying down on the porch tired after a hard day's work I’m thinking that this animal must have a really exciting life.

As you probably know, this type of dog can gather a lot of energy. And when that energy gets unleashed you better be careful and be prepared.

From his perspective everything moves so much faster. It's impossible for me to understand all the elements he sees and affects him.

A dog can sense very tiny changes in his environment and possibly tiny changes in you.

Going from this I started being as observant of the way he sits as I am. And that's when I noticed something remarkable.

He would come closer to me when I would stand with my hands crossed, he would sit farther when I was tired and he would distract my attention when I would gaze at the sky a little too much.

It has been two years since my wife has passed away and only now I understood that this dog was there all along comforting me.

He has shown me that a dog on a porch can be so much more than just another lazy canine. - Freddie Bradshaw

Dozer on the Lookout

This is my dog, Dozer. He sits on the porch waiting for something interesting to wander into our yard. Our front yard consists of about 8 acres, and it contains a very large pond, so there's always an interesting duck, deer, or turkey passing by! - Kriston Haag
