The online retailer knew the only way to placate enraged customers was with adorable doggos — and it kind of worked.

Amazon has the ability to make or break the internet. And when the site’s server suffered a glitch on Prime Day 2018, leaving many of its product links broken, the company knew there was only one solution to assuage customer rage: dogs.

Though many Amazon Prime deal pages popped up errors, would-be deal grabbers were entertained with photos of dogs in all shapes, sizes, moods and colors every time the error page refreshed.

By most accounts, Amazon’s strategy worked. Some Prime shoppers took to Twitter to express their annoyance, but with a blend of sarcasm and delight at the retailer’s clever use of canine therapy. Prime users threw shade, posted memes and even started sharing pictures of their own pets.

Ultimately, it turned what could have been a frustrating experience into a collection of funny Prime Day dog tweets. Will we see something similar for Amazon Prime Day 2019? Time will tell, but for now, it behooves us to honor the Prime Days of yore.

The Best Prime Day 2018 Dog Tweets

Amazon Prime Day 2019 is just around the corner and, while we don’t know yet whether a server glitch will cause the same online panic as it did in 2018, one can only hope if the worst happens, Amazon will have a new roster of dog photos — or maybe even a few cat GIFs — to temporarily distract the masses.

With that said, we’re looking back at some of the top tweets from Prime Day 2018. They include a timeless roundup of relatable humor, good old boys and memorable comments culled from angsty Amazon Prime shoppers.
