The internet is great for many things. One of the best parts of the internet is when we all gather around a question that needs solving. What color was that dress? Were those woman’s leg really shiny? We love to debate the strange and the ridiculous online. One of the harrowing questions of 2o15 came to us just last December. The question was simple, yet baffling. It had us scratching our heads just at the thought of it. What would it look like if dogs wore pants, what would it look like? Would the pants be on the puppy’s back legs, or would the pants be extra large and cover the under belly and all for legs?

After many Twitter polls, countless debates, and even a presidential weigh in it seems like we have found our answer!

This week, police in Bellevue, Washington, found a lost dog wearing “a sweater and blue pants.” The dog’s pants were only on his hind legs.

While the dog doesn’t seem too pleased with the rescue, we can all breathe a sigh of relief knowing that if dogs wore pants, it would be only on their hind legs. This seems like it could end one of the internet’s fiercest debates, but only time will tell. After all is one dog a fair sample size? I’m sure the naysayers of the internet will not see this picture as sufficient evidence. Sometimes, the debate can be much more interesting and entertaining than finding out the actual answer.
