12 Weird Things That Your Dog Does

Having a dog is great and all, but have you ever noticed the weird things that they do? I love my dog, but he does some crazy stuff! Nobody really knows what is going on in your dog's mind.

1. Butt-Scooting

I guess they can't help it. When their butt itches they can't exactly scratch it themselves.

2. Watching You While You're On The Toilet

Prepare yourself for never being alone in the bathroom ever again.

3. Watching You

You're sitting on the couch after a long day of work and your dog literally stands on the couch inches from your face and watches you. It's almost like they are waiting for you to do something interesting.

4. Chewing Your Underwear

Why do they do this?

5. Sniffing Stranger's Crotches

This is awkward for not only you, but the violated guest.

6. Finding Something Dead/Dirty And Rolling In It

I have no explanation for this. I do not know why the dog would want something that gross all over themselves, but it's a pain.

7. Eating Grass

I was told that they did this when they had an upset stomach, but this is still weird.

8. Tilting Their Heads When You Talk To Them

They try so hard to understand!

9. Peeing On Tires

Why do they do this?

10. Walking Through Puddles

I am pretty sure that they do this to annoy us.

11. Sniffing Their Own Poop

I have no explanation.

12. Eating Their Vomit

It's so gross.

Some of the weirdest things that dogs do can also be the cutest things that they do. Dog owners, at first this may make you feel uncomfortable, but I promise that you get used to it. I love my weird dog.

Safe Spaces Or Regressive Spaces?

Turns out shielding yourself from ideas can be detrimental to your ability to learn


College is a place for people who want to learn. That is the primary function of any academic institution. Its purpose is not to coddle us, nor should the community always be in agreement with us. We are supposed to surround ourselves with a variety of viewpoints that challenge us to learn, not the same repetitive points of view that make us happy.

Black Friday is back to being Black Friday

This year, malls are standing up against Black Friday beginning on Thanksgiving. Doors won't be opening until Friday morning.


Last week my twitter feed was full of exclamations of how excited people were that our local mall, Westmoreland Mall would be closed on Thanksgiving Day this year. For those who work during the busy holiday days and hours, a celebration was in order. For the die-hard deal finders and shoppers though, they didn’t seem very happy.

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

There's been a recent boom in the popularity of vintage style looks and up-cycling thrifted finds to sell at, usually, an outrageous price. Is this ethical? Or does it defeat the whole purpose of thrifting in the first place?

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

One day, I was scrolling through Twitter and came across a tweet about upper-middle-class class people thrift shopping. I personally was against the up cycling/re-selling trend because I thought it to be greedy. Then, I began to see more and more tweets, and then stated to see ones about those who buy thrifted, name brand items and sell them for what they're actually worth instead of the very low price they got them for.

Holidays With the Family?

Should retail outlets close on holidays so their employees can be with their families?


For the past few years, having stores open on Thanksgiving has become a popular trend. The sales have started earlier on the day known as Gray Thursday. Now, the Mall of America has taken a bold stand and is closing its doors on Thanksgiving. They are very excited in giving the day back to their workers so they can spend time with their family.

Black Friday: Explained

Time to question this unofficial corporate holiday.

On a personal level, Black Friday has always confused me. Everyone just ate a ton and spent all day with their families—why would we want to go out and vigorously shop, fighting crowds? I totally see why other people want to go do it, but I’ve never quite understood the concept myself. While I’ve been Black Friday shopping once or twice, I don’t get that excited about it unless it’s an opportunity to spend time with family or friends. Don’t get me wrong; I am the queen of bargains. Still, I never seem to have the energy to go out into the jungle of shoppers early the day after Thanksgiving, or even immediately after Thanksgiving dinner. Many people, though—including my loved ones—are enthusiastic about Black Friday shopping, and it seems most other Americans are the same way. So, it’s worth looking at the reasons for this commercially-driven, unofficial American holiday.
