Bad boy! Pet owners share their frustration with their pesky pooches in 'dogshaming' craze . . . and cats come in for scorn too

By Kerry Mcdermott

..Owning a pet dog has always had its downsides.

Teeth marks on shoes and accidents on the kitchen floor are just some of the bad habits owners are willing to overlook in light of the endless affection, loyalty and playfulness provided by a pet pooch.

But now owners are getting their own back on their naughty pets by posting their pictures in a 'dogshaming' gallery on the internet.

Playful: This dog's habit of chewing carpets earned it a place on the 'name and shame your dog' site

The Tumblr site has been flooded with pictures of mischievous dogs all accompanied by signs detailing their bad behaviour.

The gallery features everything from a pug that digs up gardens and has a tendency to bite to a mournful looking canine who ate a whole stick of butter while his owner's back was turned.

Dogs with a habit of leaving their mess in unfortunate locations seem most likely to incur the wrath of their owners, with bad toilet behaviour featuring heavily in the gallery of shame.

It's not just naughty dogs who have had their high jinks posted online for all to see - cat owners are getting in on the act too.

One sleepy-eyed feline is pictured next to a sign that reads: 'I ate all the string cheese'.

Another exasperated owner has posted a photo of their pet with a sign that says simply: 'I was a bad dog - again.'
