Animals don't really understand our habits, but they're generally supportive. Especially dogs, unless you're riding something with wheels. A lot of them hate that. But one thing some pets don't get is our desire to clean ourselves all over with disgusting water. So gross.
Twitter user @RudeWeaver posted photos of their dog bringing some emotional support to the harrowing shower experience. Apparently, Clark the dog hates baths, so he figured his human probably needs a fun toy to get through the experience of washing. He very graciously loaned one of his own:
Here's the face of initial concern:
And the hopeful check-in:
"Are you okay?" his eyes beg to know. Ow, my heart.
People are sharing their brave and helpful doggo stories:
mine tried to save my from a large marauding pig the other day who just *happened* to wander into my laundry (don't ask). She was very scared but trying hard to send it out. When I came in she leapt in front of me to protect me even though she was scared. *My Hero*— makejamnotwar #PCPEU #RJCOB (@upsadaizy) January 15, 2018
This is too sweet. My dog never did this with toys, but she would always lay patiently right outside to make sure I completed my showers successfully. 😂 So long as I left the door cracked...if not she’d scratch at it until I opened it and she could make eye contact. 😭— Jana uary (@sunjana1) January 14, 2018
And at least one brave shower cat:
The votes are unanimous: We don't deserve dogs.
Dogs are so precious. Sometimes I feel we humans don’t deserve them.— Sherry Virani (@FakeMiddletone) January 14, 2018
Maud - my humble apologies regarding your gender identity! This is Charlie. He’s 2 now but still has those puppy dog eyes. Thought you might be distant cousins. Lol!

Clark seems very excited by all the attention:
For some reason, there are a lot of people arguing about this video, so @RudeWeaver stepped in to explain stuff:
Also if anyone is wondering why I had my phone in the shower it's because he does this every time and I wanted to finally get it on camera haha— Rude (@rudeweaver) January 13, 2018
@ everyone saying he just wants to play or for us to throw the toy- no, each shower he stays for a good 10 minutes staring and being upset then eventually brings the toy and if you throw it he looks at you like you offended his ancestors and doesn't bring it back— Rude (@rudeweaver) January 14, 2018
This wonderful dog isn't playing. We don't deserve these good boys.
