Warning, pups. Our humans went to our hu-grandparents house Saturday night and came back with disturbing stories about how hard our Cousin Tartok is working. Now we know that he, like us, is a member of the Working Dog class, but this amount of effort is totally exhausting. Please don’t attempt this without sufficient training in advance.
In this first picture, Tartok demonstrates his incredible ability to hold the wall up while simultaneously making sure that the rug does not move. Notice in a particularly advanced technique, he has also carefully placed a piece of Siberian fluff on the wood floor.
After several pictures and no movement, Tartok was asked to demonstrate that he was actually able to move despite the deep concentration required in these advanced efforts. With careful concentration, he was able to move his head and eye the owner of the flashy beast. What an excellent demonstration of Siberian look of disdain.
Finally, the careful observer will notice that all of this concentration and effort requires a special holding of the tongue, just like Michael Jordan would do in a particularly difficult basketball move. Highly skilled athletes often use this trick. Mere humans will also be in total wonder at the body positioning and be amazed at the athletic prowess required to sleep – er, work – in this contorted frame.
Don’t know about the rest of you, but we are exhausted at these demonstrations and are headed back for a nap.
