I will pay good money to be the guy that serves that person their next meal, when they are hungry, and it is the ONE piece of meat they just love to eat....and I will hold it just out of reach, and I will laugh...

...and then I will give it to the dog.

On Dog Youtube this is known as "ultimate man tease".

Usually you only see that expression on the face of a starlet in a horror movie that does whatever the crazy psycho wants her to so she can survive, and you know her resolve has just kicked in and she will take him DOWN by the end of the film.

When we were in NYC this spring, we stayed with some people who had a chihuahua/dachshund mix. The dog absolutely luuuuurved us.

We were hanging out on the bed one afternoon in between adventures, and she reallyreallyreally wanted to hang out on the bed with us, but due to her stature, wan't quite able to get the lift necessary to hop up.

She proceeded to do the same thing the pom was doing in the video, incorporated into a long back-and-forth dance all along the side of the bed. So the front paws were going patpatpat along the mattress, and the back paws were all cha-cha-cha on the floor.

I think there might be a short video of this somewhere, but it is not on any of my devices.

ADORABLE!!!!

This video left me feeling all warm and fuzzy. Until it ended and the Youtube recommended video was a gigantic close-up of a blackhead covered nose. WHY!! WHY!?!?!? WHY!?!??!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

Yeah, I got that too, I can't figure out why.

But then, another version of the video gave me Anderson Cooper and the term "Booouvre" so...

Ditto on the blackhead nostril thing. Fuuuuuh.

I remember an episode of the Upright Citizens Brigade where, in their mission to jam culture, Adair had invented some sort of "denying the dog a slice of bologna and getting it worked up" type of fetish video. I'm glad to see that reality has finally caught up to the UCB.

Just wait, some joker will put that black head nostril on the sausage licking Pomeranian.

Once I noticed the pom's eyelids, I couldn't stop looking at them.

OMG, I just made the idiotic choice of clicking on the black head clip!

Are there simply no consequences for posting something like this?

I can see the .gif version in my mind's "What Should We Call Me Grad School" tumblr already. Maybe "Getting positive feedback from my advisor"? Or "When I'm one piece of data away from graduating"?

No nostrils on viewing either clip. So there's that.

I started watching this and then started crying because I felt so bad for the dog who wanted the sausage, and then the dog got the sausage and I started crying harder. I think it's bedtime.

Is it just me or does this dog look like a fake dog? I think it's the tappatappa of the nails with the freakishly gigantic, improbably large eyes. It might be a robot.

A cat would just stick out it's claws and hook the sausage. Actually no, a cat would just jump right up into the plate of sausages you can see in the wide shot. In summary: why is the person hand being so mean to that cute doggy?

Man, we are a long ways away from wolves now.

Also, that appears to be a sweet potato, not a sausage. Which is good because I don't want to hear the explanation behind why a sausage has a wart.

In honor of dogs and sweet potatoes

Very cute. Lasts just over a minute too, so the dog doesn't go hungry for very long. Not that he starts eating the sausage right away, either - just goes under the table with it entirely in his mouth.

I thought the moving of the sausage was giving the dog a chance to achieve his own reward. A 'it's tastier if you've worked to get it yourself' kind of deal.

I did't get The Nose.

(But I have probably seen it. I was sorta-working-up an idea about zit squeezing and primate grooming, so did actually go looking on Youtube for videos of all that. There are a lot. One contained the line "One fell on the floor, and a mollusc ate it". Unless you are a professional dermatologist, I strongly recommend sticking to the cute dogz vidz. Very strongly. No, stronger than that.)

This is me writing that award winning script. Except for the ending.

They've bred that dog to be so cute, it barely has any survival skills left. Eventually, there will be a breed that will only be able to lay on a pillow and make adorable little noises. You'll need to feed it with a bottle and it will wear a diaper. Can you imagine?

One of our neighbors used to have a pomeranian. It was like living across the street from Fizzgig 24/7. I was especially amused by the pup's adversarial relationship with the bulldogs next door to him, who rarely seemed to acknowledge his existence.

My dog's version of this:

DOG: [sees food on table. Stands on two legs, stretches, determines he can not reach]
DOG: [looks at human, establishes eye contact] bark
HUMAN: [ignores Dog]
DOG: [walks to side of table, eyes stay on Human] Bark. [stomps feet] BARK.
HUMAN:[looks at dog] Enough.
DOG: [walks 2 dog-steps closer to Human] BARK! BARK!! [stomps feet] [wags tail, while engaging in staring contest with Human] [walks two dog-steps closer] BARK!!!
HUMAN: Enough barking, dog. Knock it off.
DOG: EEEEeeeeEEEEEE (my approximation of the most awful, annoying, loudest non-bark whining ever) [stares at Human] EEEEEEEEeeeeeEEEEEEE woof
HUMAN: Sigh, fine. Take it. [hands dog food].

I had to haul myself out of my sick bed multiple times yesterday to take stuff away from one of our dogs that he'd stolen off the kitchen counter, out of the kitchen sink, and off the top of the baker's rack. We're lucky he hasn't figured out how to get the food on top of the fridge. Yet.

It's obviously time to rethink my "big dogs only" policy and trade them all in for some poms.

Man, that dog's face for some uncanny valley reason creeps me the fuck out. Also: after all that work the dog deserved a much bigger treat, video people.

In summary: why is the person hand being so mean to that cute doggy?



Holden: "The dog stares at the sausage, and paws at the table. It gets hungrier and hungrier. It wants the sausage, but it can't reach it, not without your help. But you're not helping."

Leon: "What do you mean, I'm not helping?"

Holden: "I mean- you're not helping. Why is that, Leon?"

I think the dog soon forgot about the harrowing experience, so no harm no foul.

Dogs are bottomless pits of "want" and "need." I love 'em, but unless they're asleep, they're always mooning after something or other. A few seconds delay in getting a treat is a blip on their endless hankering.
