Whining

Whining is a very specialized art that must be practiced.  Since each member of The Herd adds their own unique talents to the group, Cheoah has been elected as Whiner-in-Chief.  Not just because she can be loud – and she can be loud, but because she has incredible persistence.  The video proof:

    Steve’s the whiner in our family. I just let him do all the work because whatever he gets from his whining, I usually get it too.

    I think it’s awfully bad that you made Cheoah whine for so long while you just videoed. Did you also say “10 more minutes!” That’s what Mom says when Steve starts whining. It’s really bad when he starts early and she says “30 more minutes!”

    Great job with the whining. You don’t need volume to get the humans to give up.

    But what is with the leisurely eating!!!! I thought I was watching the video in slow motion for a minute.

    Cheoah – your humans are terrible teasers – you go whine all you want and maybe they will go away with that camera.

    I bet the other dogs have elected her Chief Whiner because she is so good at it, and so annoying she always gets what she wants. I love to see a dog who knows just what she is doing . . .you are a Champ, Cheoah!

    Wooo She sounds just like me, except I start barking after a minute or two, She has much more patience than I. Scampi’s ears kept coming up, wondering where the whining dog was in the computer.
