Fur Kids Lessons

Arf! Arf! Helloooo there!

(Left to Right) : Dexter & Wally

These a couple of my Fur Kids practicing what they learnt from their astutely wise Dog Father, TOP DOG of Dog Woods.

Incase, you're wondering, today's lesson was on the 'art of looking sad'....

Now gentle readers, you may all be wondering of all lessons a Dog Father is to teach his Fur Kids, why dwell on looking sad ...? Shouldn't looking sad come as naturally as looking happy? What is there to teach, any ways ...?

But ah! You see, its all got to do with Dog-gee-psy-woo-logy. It's all part and parcel of how to twist your human round one's paws. Like getting the Chief to give you more treats for example ... now those faces are perfect specimens of 'boo-hoo-hoo-poor-little-doggy-me-ohh-you-'re-bound-to-pity-me-and-give-me-a-treat-or-two-to-cheer-me-up' look!
Anyhows, they showed the Chief the 'look' yesterday and she did agree they looked very moanful about something (yay!). But then she went on to ask ' are you ill?! are you in pain? Maybe we should call the V-E-T to find out what's wrong ...' (boo!)
Well, I guess they (the Furry Little Ones) have got a long way to go on perfecting the 'boo-hoo-hoo-poor-little-doggy-me-ohhh-you're-bound-to-pity-me-and-give-me-a-treat-or-two-to-cheer-me-up' look.


  1. Dexter and Wally are coming along nicely! It isnt easy to perfect that hangdog expression - it does need work!
    We bassets have perfected it over the years - it is the feed me and make me happy look - works so well.
    As you say Dexter and Wally still have a way to go to be as good as you............

  6. Good head placement, but the expression is still not pathetic enough. Keep working.


  7. They are starting to get it, Tuffy. We do that to Dad and as long as we don't drool on his pants, it works everytime - treats for all the pups!!!
