Hamish Says ” Cheese “

Yesterday I thought I would do a Photo Challenge that I’ve seen floating around FB where you tell your dog he’s a Good Boy. You’re supposed to snap a picture or record  their reaction. My newsfeed on FB was chock full of happy looking dogs and I wanted my dog to be one of them.

The thing is Hamish doesn’t really like to pose for pictures so the one other time I did the challenge  Hamish slouched, put his head down and  he refused to look up at me when I said his name. So I passed on the challenge. I’m not going to make my dog do something that he really doesn’t need to do.

Yesterday was different.

This time when I told him he was a good boy he looked right at me and did this:

Then I told him to smile and he did the head tilt and did this:

I don’t know if that was a smile, or if he was doing what he’s trained to do- when something unexpected happens or he doesn’t understand a command,  Hamish is suppose to sit in front of me and look me in the eye. Then he gets his instructions or reassurances and we go from there.

Like I said, I don’t know if he was waiting for me to get my act together or if that was a smile.

Just to let  you know,  my vote is for smile because everytime I look at these two pictures I can’t help but to smile and laugh a big old hearty laugh.

  1. I’m laughing because I see the first one and think of a smile, I see the second and I think I can just about hear him saying, “I think not, Madam!” (It’s been a long day, and dog conversations are the one conversation I miss most often!)

      • YES! I SEE THAT TOO!!! Like, “really, mom? REALLY?” That look and tone right before you do the complete opposite of what mom said to do as if to say “you can’t tell me what to do. Unless you have bacon. I don’t see bacon, so you can’t tell me what to do. Nope!” 😂
