With a single tweet (that turned into hundreds of thousands of tweets) earlier this month, Sully the Service Dog – and his commitment to the late President George H.W. Bush – showed the impact that pooches and other animals can have across Twitter.
The image of Sully laying before Bush’s casket is one that will resonate, even long after contrarian haters wasted their time chiding folks who connected with it.
However, that’s not the only really cute or cool tweet involving our non-human companions.
No sir-ee Bob.
In this Tweets of the Year installment, let’s take a look at some other memorable ones (in no particular order, but most notably excluding PETA’s call regarding mean-word-ism). If we missed some, by all means share them in the comments section. Also, in the spirit of fair warning, one of these tweets drew an NSFW tag on account of profanity.
There is no such thing as enough good-pet/wild-animal/rodent/singing-fossils content.
(Oh yeah, be sure to check back on Friday and Monday for other Tweets of the Year lists.)

There’s no allegedly about it. (Please don’t sue us, seagull.)
I’m relieved ABC News used “allegedly.” Nothing worse than a litigious seagull. https://t.co/sHzKOABhpD— Yuletide Serota (@maggieserota) January 13, 2018
It’s the pigeon’s kitchen now. Move along.
The only logical conclusion. (And also one that warrants an NSFW tag for profanity.)
