We’ve all had experiences of different moments with our pets where we wish we’d had a camera to capture a specific moment in time. From the ridiculous to the sublime, our dogs have no doubt done it all and when it’s been caught on film, it’s something we can relive time and time again.
Thankfully, these 14 dog owners had their camera to hand when their dogs decided to take it upon themselves to have a really good shake. Not just a little one, but a fully blown hair raising, jowel shifting shake. And thank goodness they did!
But before you take a look at these wonderful dogs, please, don’t start with Taylor Swift’s ‘Shake It Off’ in your head. You won’t be able to pause it, or for want of a better expression, shake it off, when you start.
