People bond with their dogs in many different ways . In general, it is recommended that you spend some one-on-one time with them each day. Pet them, walk them, learn their body language and their likes and dislikes and other similar bonding exercises. Some owners spoil their dogs a little bit and let them sleep in their beds or eat from their plates. It’s all part of the bonding process. And once you start empathizing with your pet, there’s nothing that you wouldn’t do to make them feel better. Of course there’s cases where said bonding attempts hilariously backfire.
For example, Texas man Chris Mendiola only meant well when he tattooed the unknown symbol he found on the belly of his newly adopted dog, Bear.
Chris rescued Bear back in 2010 and discovered a small tattoo on the dog’s lower belly, which he thought was given to him by the previous “abusive” owners. Sickened by the act, he felt compelled to get the same tattoo on his arm, in solidarity with his hairy little friend. How cute is that? Well, it was slightly less cute for him when he found out the tattoo had a very specific purpose.
It is a sign vets use to mark dogs as neutered. Unaware of this, Chris proudly shared his new tattoo on social media and the post went viral in no time.
But the deed is done, the ink is there, and there’s no going back now.
I guess the moral of the story is: Do your research before making any rash decisions, because you may end up getting neutered by the Internet.
