If a dog had thumbs, what would they build? We’re guessing that they’d build an automatic dog petting machine. Thankfully for this lucky German Shepherd, its owner decided to build one.
In Garden City, Michigan, an unnamed inventor and dog lover put his ingenuity to work to build an automatic dog petting machine for his canine friend. The video was filmed on 2/06/2019, which explains everything. It’s awful cold in Grand City this time of the year and there isn’t much to do to keep busy when you’re stuck inside!
Using wooden cogs and a lot of wooden sprockets, the machine turns 2 wooden arms with hands attached into doggy paradise. The longer arm swings back and forth in a stroking manner, the other pats the dog in an up and down motion on the back, just above the tail.
There are a few drawbacks. The German Shepherd thoroughly enjoys the machine, but it’s small companion … well, the small companion isn’t tall enough for this ride.
When asked about the machine, the inventor had this to say:
“Humans have massage chairs so why shouldn’t our pets have petting machines. I gave it a Rube Goldberg style flare to make it interesting to watch.”
Hard to argue with that logic. This machine is spectacular!
The morning seemed like any other, but then he saw odd shapes cowering in the road. After stopping alongside the road, he discovered two pit bulls. Refusing to leave each other’s sides, they lied there injured and bleeding.
Immediately, Hennessey called the police. Not long after, Deputy Boggs and Deputy Reed appeared on the scene. At first, the dogs seemed nervous. Approaching the dogs gently, the officers calmed them down.
Because of misconceptions about the breed, pit bulls get into an odd situation. Thinking they are all violent, people often pass them over in shelters, abandon them, or euthanize them. In extreme situations, they use them for fighting.
After being around pit bulls, it’s easy to see they’re just as sweet as any other dog.
Leading them off the street, the officers took the dogs to a safe area.
At that point, the officers convinced the dogs they were going to help them. Looking for comfort from their horrible night, the dogs snuggled right up next to the officers.
To stop the bleeding, officers applied bandages to the dogs’ injured leg.
After seeing they both had collars, the officers came to the conclusion the owners of the dogs may have intentionally abandoned them.
Orange County Animal Services took the dogs to a local shelter. There they received treatment, got time to rest, and cleaned up.
The dogs were named Liberty and Justice and were very sweet and loving once they became familiar with shelter staff.
“Deputies Boggs and Reed comforted the two scared dogs while waiting for Animal Services to arrive,” Orange County Animal Services wrote on it’s Facebook page. “These two ladies are now safe and thriving in our care.”

The owner offers Mya an apple, but she is not satisfied and wants the cookies! The pooch is obviously upset and starts barking and growling at her owner, refusing to obey. She has a sweet tooth, but her owner doesn’t understand that! Watching this canine protesting over dinner, whining about her diet, shows that Australian Shepherds can be very spoiled and picky about their eats! Mya continues to whine and bark in protest and completely ignores her owner’s command.
Watch as she throws a nasty temper tantrum at the owner, complaining about the diet. It is funny to try and translate her discontent in the words of “Give me some sugar baby! Just a tiny bite of them cookies! I am not chubby, why you put me on diet?” She is so frustrated that she continuously whines about this stupid diet!
