Dog Sneezes Are Hilarious

As my wife frequently reminds me, I am a simple man. I happily admit it doesn’t take much for me to smile or giggle. It might not be highbrow comedy, but yesterday I photographed Penny battling a sneeze and now I can’t stop laughing. It started as a

It started as a slight headcock

Then a big smile before the “achoo”

Except the sneeze never came

It got stuck

“Oh, maybe I don’t have to sneeze!” Penny thought

“Oh wait, yes I do.” She realized

The sneeze rolled around in her head a bit more

Then Penny gave one last exquisite, crazed, Joker-face…

And the world shook!

It’s like trying to photograph lightning, but if you happen to have your camera on hand while your pup is sneezing, shoot away! You’re bound to catch some hilarious shots.

And unlike the photos I took of Emily sneezing, Penny and other dogs don’t mind if you post the photos online 😉

Comments for Dog Sneezes Are Hilarious

  1. I had a sneeze-photo on facebook, I laughed as I saw this face :o) our life would be eggs-tremely boring without them :o)

  2. Oh my DoG that was hilarious! Thanks for the giggles. And tell Penny, “Bless you!” LOL

  3. Caroline says:

    Both of us laughed out loud! I adoreally your photography and doggie journalism.

  4. Emmadog says:

    Mom always says big sneeze, little dog to me when I sneeze as it normally shakes my entire body!

  5. Connie Taylor says:

    Has Eko or Penny ever done mutiple sneezes? Sometimes our kids do, and its funny to see and hear them, especially when they finish and give us that look of “What was that!?!?!?”

  6. That was great, Will. You really have the gift of verbalizing Penny’s thoughts. Another good one with Neeka and Khoi is when they have the hiccups. Neeka gets so annoyed by them. Khoi gets more animated with each one. Unfortunately, capturing them on camera wouldn’t be nearly as entertaining as sneezes, though something tells me you could do it.

  7. Kismet says:

    Admit it, you induced that sneeze with a little pepper up her nose 🙂

  8. WHOA! I hate when sneezes get stuck! One time, I sneezed 10 times in a row. Mom was laughing so hard because I was sneezing in her friend’s face and he was covered in nose rain. BOL! You always capture the best action shots, Will! *ear licks* Noodle

    Yep! Love sneezes. Poor Dash sneezed so hard once that he hit the floor with his face and ended the sneeze with a yelp. Poor guy — he looked at me for sympathy and found me laughing. That was one powerful sneeze! I couldn’t help but laugh. Dash stood in confusion for a few seconds.

  10. I soooo needed a laugh today. Thanks for providing the humor!

  11. Genevieve says:

    Great work, Will! Only you can capture the elusive, ridiculous, hilarious frame-by-frame sneeze. I love it!

  12. LifeLoofah says:

    I totally agree, they are hilarious!

  13. Abbie says:

    Haha, this made me laugh so hard! Thanks for sharing!

  14. Jo Rhodes says:

    Dean kisses my nose and then sneezes in my face. Every time. What’s up with that?

  15. I take the train to and from work. It’s a 50-minute ride each way. Sometimes I wonder how people would react if I sneezed the way my dogs sneeze.

    Then I smile.

  16. Penny looks like she had to work that sneeze up from her toes to her nose – a looooong trip! HAHA
