If I see someone walking the street alone at night, I automatically assume they're up to something shady. If I see that same person walking with a dog, I automatically assume they're more trustworthy than an average person.

That's why I always bring my dog when I'm up to something shady.

A dog could make an excellent partner in crime!

You just gave the serial killers of Reddit a bright idea

Unless they're walking a cat. That would always look suspicious.

Unless you're stealing slippers.

I assure you that this is a known and we'll used tactic by folks who have things to do in public and dint want to drawn suspicion.

I just don't have a car alright? Sometimes I still need to get around after the sun sets at 5:30. Having said that, I totally still get slightly more vigilant whenever I walk past anyone else at night.

But he's a good boy

I think it's because we treat the dog as a sort of endorsement of that person -- not only are dogs themselves generally viewed as trustworthy judges of character, but we also know that it takes a certain amount of responsibility and care to raise a dog well.

What if they're wearing a long coat and they're walking a German Shepard or Doberman.

And then the dog is confused when you throw it in a ditch because, you know, no witnesses and all that.

More so if you're stealing slippers. Hell, Nordstrom Rack better watch TF out!

Please cough up the name of their sub - authorities

Or a ferret. Or a pair of ferrets.

They're good dogs Brent.

LPT get a dog than will listen to your commands. It's no use if you rob a guy and your basset decide that this walk is over.

First episode he talks about how dogs and animals in general have never liked him, almost like they can sense what he is.

Then they have poor taste in clothing and great taste in dogs

/sub/ooer

It also gives the person an alibi for being outside. If I see someone out at night alone, I think "what's he up to? Why are you outside?" but if that same person has a dog, I think "oh, his dog just needed to take a piss."

Wut?

Note to Dexter. Get a dog.

Clearly you live above the poverty line.

Just tell me, why do you have to give me an epileptic seizure when I am not epileptic.

A dog generally can vouch for a person. If I trust your dog, I have to assume you're not that bad

But the dog ..... Watch out for that bitch
