Seriously guys?! Only send in dogs. I only rate dogs. This is a baby black bear... 11/10 pic.twitter.com/H7kpabTfLj— WeRateDogs™ 🏳️🌈 (@dog_rates) December 12, 2015
If you’ve ever wondered how your dog would rate on a scale of one to 10, now you can find out. Simply send a photo of your pup to Matt Nelson and he’ll supply you with that rating — and a description of your pet that's likely to make you laugh out loud.
Nelson posts the photos and ratings on his Twitter account @dog_rates, which has amassed more than 80,000 followers since its Nov. 15 launch, thanks to the cute photos and hilarious captions.
The account is updated multiple times a day. Nelson, a 19-year-old business student at Campbell University, admits it takes a great deal of his time.
Breathtaking scene. A father taking care of his newborn pup. Tugs at the heartstrings. 10/10 restores my faith pic.twitter.com/06oZdehGEa— WeRateDogs™ 🏳️🌈 (@dog_rates) December 13, 2015
This pupper is fed up with being tickled. 12/10 I'm currently working on an elaborate heist to steal this dog pic.twitter.com/F33n1hy3LL— WeRateDogs™ 🏳️🌈 (@dog_rates) December 9, 2015
These two pups just met and have instantly bonded. Spectacular scene. Mesmerizing af. 10/10 and 7/10 for blue dog pic.twitter.com/gwryaJO4tC— WeRateDogs™ 🏳️🌈 (@dog_rates) December 14, 2015
Meet Eve. She's a raging alcoholic 8/10 (would b 11/10 but pupper alcoholism is a tragic issue that I can't condone) pic.twitter.com/U36HYQIijg— WeRateDogs™ 🏳️🌈 (@dog_rates) December 6, 2015
And just because you don’t have a dog, doesn’t mean you can’t participate. Nelson will rate any animal as if it were a dog.
From amphibians to insects, no species is out of bounds, and often it’s these “dogs” that make the most popular tweets.
