Looking Pathetic

Qannik is the master of looking pathetic - especially while the hu-dad is taking this picture from INSIDE a restaurant. The abuse continues.

    Qannik really has that look down to a science!

    Just so you know you are not alone, Hu-Dad, I was sitting having a cup of cocoa and a piece of toast AFTER giving Stella two treats, and she continued to beg for my toast. I told her to go to bed and she soon returned with her old Rawhide bone, which she laid at my feet. I Think she might have said, “There, see if you can get some more sustenence off THAT.” and left. They will take all we have and ask for more, the little beggars!

    Well done, my friend! I can’t do better myself…and I am considered a Master!

    Poor guy…he just wants some food to.

    I’m calling the cops. No dog should have to live with that sort of abuse.

    I promise that one day we will mail The Herd a giant box of pizza bones!

    Hopefully someone will pass by and relieve that poor boy’s hunger!

  13. Kari on March 3, 2011 at 11:46 am

    Do we need to call the authorities?

    But, I thought that Qannik melted yesterday?

    Poor Sibe…

    It is too sad when humans leave us out of the restaurant. It’s like they think they can’t trust us. They should always eat at outdoor cafes year ’round so we can be with them. i hope they at least brought you left-overs.

    Qannik is indeed a master!


  21. Khyra on March 3, 2011 at 6:10 am

    Bricey will be furry proud!

    Definitely a professional!
