Dogs Have Bad Hair Days Too

Actually, a dog's bad hair day might be worse. Dogs are covered in hair so when they have a hair dilemma it affects their entire body. Humans can simply put on a hat, or even re-style their hair, dogs on the other hand don't usually have hats and lack the opposable thumbs and fingers necessary to operate such hairstyling tools as blow dryers or curling irons.

Also, don't forget that dogs have to rely on humans to style their hair, and let's face it, sometimes humans make the worst canine hairstyle decisions imaginable.

Don't believe me? Let's take a look at the Standard Poodle haircut:

Some evil person designed this hairstyle, which often includes shaving a poodle's hair, but leaving pom pom-shaped fur on the bottoms of the feet, top of the head and the butt. Whoever invented this style did not have their dog's best interests in mind.

So, if you're ever having a bad hair day, just be thankful you're not a poodle and remember that you'll most likely never have to live through the embarrassment of looking like this:
