Hilarious and Heartwarming Working Dogs

 For about 15,000 years, humans have been co-existing and working with dogs. Dogs were the first animals to be domesticated by humans, well before livestock and cultivated crops and assisted humans in hunting. For much of human history, the main occupation of dogs was aiding people in chasing and bringing back prey, and many of their hunting instincts are still evident in canine behavior.
With hunting becoming obsolete and unpopular, dogs have not been idling about, and many dogs still do incredibly important work. Here are 20 funny pictures of dogs who are absolute workaholics:
