I have to share this video with you today, because it is just too funny.
I’ll set it up for you a bit: I had been trying to teach Lucia to “smile” for a few weeks, but I’d given up because she just wasn’t responding to the training. Usually, Lucia picks up new tricks with only a few attempts, so I had been a little downtrodden that I’d failed.
When I arrived home from work one day last week, I quickly realized that Lucia had stuck her nose into the laundry bin again. Darn it! As you might recall, Lucia seems to feel quite guilty when she does something wrong…and she immediately began to diffuse the situation by miraculously remembering how to do her “smile” trick. That punk…
Is it just me, or do I have the most manipulative dog ever?
So, all of a sudden a few weeks ago, I came home to find that Lucia had pulled apart some of the laundry bin (I hadn’t finished doing the laundry the night before and had left the bin in the middle of the living room – it’s usually in our bedroom, where Lucia is not allowed to go). There were a few items scattered across the living room floor. Ah, geez. It took a little while to get her to stop that habit, because I wasn’t catching her in the act to tell her “no.” The second time I came home to find laundry on the living room floor (yeah, apparently I didn’t learn the first time), I had to take a video. Lucia KNEW she had been bad…you could see it in her eyes! The shame.
So – do your pets know when they’ve done something wrong? And…is it just me, but when you see that guilty look in their eyes, do you immediately want to forgive them?!?!
Happy Friday everyone!
Over the past few days, Florida has experienced quite a cold front (it was in the 30s on Sunday morning! Brrrrrr). I am still waiting impatiently for the day when I am able to visit the beach and get some color in my skin! However, for now, I’ve turned to other methods to achieve a sunkissed look. My current self tanning lotion of choice? Jergens’ Natural Glow Express – and I’ll tell you more about it now…
If you want to pick up some Jergens Natural Glow Express, I’ve found it for $6.79 at Drugstore.com. Jergens Natural Glow Face can also be found for $6.79 at Drugstore.com!
I’d love to know if you have any other favorite self tanning lotions – I’m always on the lookout for new things!
Do you know what I love?
The enthusiasm with which Lucia greets me when I return home every day.
She never fails to put a huge smile on my face. How can you not love a greeting like that?
Do your pets greet you with enthusiasm too?
