This may not seem nearly as funny to anyone else, but
Toshi smile
you know, Toshi routinely cracks me up. His latest way of expressing disapproval when I don't do what he wants is to plunk himself in a major trafficway of the house with his rump toward me. Somehow the rump manages to expand in a way that absolutely radiates displeasure. Now and then he sighs loudly, just to make sure I notice that he's pouting.

What I want to know is where he got the idea that turning his back on me and sighing will let me know I've misbehaved. It's not like he's around little kids, who do this kind of thing when they're mad. And I don't spend any noticeable time lying around in doorways sighing at him, now, do I?

Too funny. Except for the tail, he reminds me of Capyboppy--did any of you read that book when you were a kid?

I think this is universal.

My rabbit does it when he is displeased with my treat offerings, and the cat... well, let us just say that I am familiar with the 'butt treatment'.


I love it!!! What a great shot - thanks for sharing, C!

SO CUTE, Cynthia!

It's crazy how animals can get so smart and show their disapproval. :) However, they don't realize how funny we humans find it, hee hee!

Toshi has a cute butt with a little tail -- enough to undermine the point he's trying to make!

OMG, he's a funny little dood! That's hilarious. He's certainly a character.

Haha that is so cute!!
Your dog is adorable ^-^

I am sure he has heard you sigh in displeasure to him. I know the Yorkies have heard me do it and they are quite proficient at showing their displeasure right back. Tazi Dee will even pivot without moving from her spot if I try to get in her face and then she gets even madder if I have the audacity to laugh. Then she will go to the "dungeon" (basement doggie holding area in the laundry room) and sulk until she is good and ready to come out. They are exceptional companions. If I was there I would give Toshi some attention, unless he is in trouble, then I would have to wait for a second first. A proper time out you know. What did we ever do without our furry little babies?!

when Tubbysnuggles is hungry (like right now) she sits somewhere near me and STARES at me. No blinking, just neverending STARING. heee!

You sure he isn't watching Peanuts cartoons when you aren't around?

Clever little guys. This made me chuckle out loud! =)

seriously, this is freaking HYSTERICAL. he's even all "I'm so put out I don't even wish to play with that boy by my ass, either."

nice meatloaf butt, there, Toshi.

OMG he is HYSTERICAL! So funny and kidlike ... sighing even.
His butt is so cute

AWWWWW!!! the cuteness kills..

Heee! We get the butt treatment from our cats sometimes. I don't think it ever achieves what they hope for, though, because it's so cute I want them to keep pouting.
Capyboppy was one of my favorites! There was a capybara at my local zoo that I was terribly fond of because of that story. Bill Peet should be required reading for all kids, I think.

LOL your dog is hilarious!

Hehe, It has mostly been my cats that show this sort of quiet confident behavior, but my dog.. she talks at me insistently and smacks me with her hard tail till I do what she wants XD
