Pawsing for attention

The Boy Of The House has flu this week. Proper flu. Not man/boy flu that's a glorified cold. Proper "couldn't-get-out-of-bed-to pick-a-£50-pound-note-off-the-floor" flu.

Now, between you and me I'm doing all right out of this. Because the Lady Of The House is bustling around the house and every time she passes by we have a little fuss. And yesterday she brought the B O T H downstairs and bedded him down on the sofa so we could all watch some films together. And I'm still getting my three walks a day across the nature reserve....but, a girl's got to take any opportunity for extra attention. Right?

So last night when the Man Of The House came home and sat down in the living room, I kept waving my paw in the air - looking extra-pathetic - until he held it.

He gave me lots of fuss and attention (I think he thought I'd not had lots of fuss during the day - which wasn't true - tee hee!!), but every time he put my paw down gently, I gave a little sad "woooo-hooo" noise and waved said paw in the air again until he held it.

I thought it was really funny. But the Lady Of The House took these photos and 'busted me' by telling the M O T H that I'd not missed out on strokes and hugs all day.

Some people! Honestly.

Busted! L O T H! Why did you have to tell him the truth?

Poor Winnie, caught in the act, I see. Too funny. If it's any consolation, I'm sure MOTH was enjoying it as much as you were.

Yes, but pets from the LOTH are NOT the same as pets from the MOTH! Surely your mom understands the difference. A hound needs attention from everyone to be well-rounded!

Bunny, you are right as usual.

Thanks, Benny & Lily. I'm pretty proud of my training techniques too.
