It might seem like it would be a lot of fun to own Superman's dog. After all, he can fly, he's strong, he's smart, and he's fiercely loyal. But as one animator proves in this NSFW short film, Krypto's still a dog, and he still has dog habits.

In "Superman's Best Friend" by animator Brett Underhill, Superman flies home to the Fortress of Solitude one evening, presumably after a long day of fighting crime. And like so many of us, he's got a dog that needs to go out. We all know what happens next, but Krypto's a Superdog, and that means he makes ... well, you know.

Yeah, it's kind of gross, but it is a very clever insight into the relationship between the Man of Steel and his four-legged best friend. Plus, the animation is actually quite wonderful.
