Augie is not like most dogs, he’s got a special skill.
While some pet owners like to show off their pup’s impressive tricks such as playing dead and rolling over, Augie the beagle is an expert when it comes to handstands (pawstands?). This is an impressive feat considering Augie is a beagle, a long boi indeed.
But Augie doesn’t do his handstands on command, he usually does them when he pees, an impressive display of balance, concentration, and most of all, confidence.
So why do some dogs do this? According to The Dodo, it’s possible that smaller dogs do this in an attempt at getting their markings physically higher than other dogs.
Either that or they’re just showing off.
