Medieval Reactions is a Twitter account with a very simple premise: It takes screenshots of Medieval paintings and gives them an accompanying caption suited to modern times. But their most recent viral tweet has a caption that is timeless, because it makes fun of the eternal struggle of dog owner versus stuff on the street the dog wants to eat:
Oh my gosh. Are you seeing me at the dog park, somehow? Yes, I know that's technically a big cat the dude is wrestling with, but the look of desperate panic in its eyes is exactly how a dog freaks out when it's about to get the garbage treat yanked out of its mouth.
And everyone agrees:
If only there was a way to communicate with your dog that the only reason you're manically pulling their jaw open and trying to fish the piece of chocolate or brownie or whatever they shouldn't be eating out of their mouth is because you want to save them from dying. That would be the best gift in the world, I seriously think about Eliza Thornberry's powers way more than I should because it would be an absolute blessing to be able to speak with my pet to let them know that I love them forever and when I scold them it's only because I don't want them to ruin their lives.
If you don't have a dog and can't relate, here's a few more dank Medieval memes:
Okay, and one more about a dog, because that's what this entire article is supposed to be about anyway.
I wonder what medieval cat memes are out on the internet. Did they have litterboxes for house cats back then? Or did felines instinctively know not to poop in the house?
