Dogs on TC Thursday: The Impawtance of Being Cute

Sometimes just being a dog isn't enough.....sometimes you have to play the cute card. You can do this in a number of ways, allow us to demonstrate....

We have learned from our Siberian friends that correct paw placement is crucial....



....especially in relation to one's snooter!


Funny faces and general silliness usually has the humans reaching for the camera (and the treats!)



....as does the classic hang-dog expression.



If you are of the female persuasion you may wish to take a more seductive approach....



....synchronised cuteness has double the impact and is usually rewarded with double belly rubs....(if she can bear to PUT THE CAMERA DOWN!!)


....and team efforts are always appreciated!


So there you have it, the art of wrapping your humans around your paws, as demonstrated by the D B Gang! If you'd like to join in with Dogs on Thursday or see the other entries, click here.

We were going to pick up on True Colours again by posting this week but we are a bit out of sync....Mum thought it was PURPLE this week, it's not, it's IVORY! Oh well, here are the PURPLES we had prepared, more from the garden. We have already done PURPLE, infact it was our first ever post for True Colours Thursday, we have also done VIOLET, to see the posts click here.

To see more entries or play along, visit our hostess Blue. Next week's theme is BLACK and TAN together....as suggested by those crazy Aireheads Maggie & Mitch!

Honey the Great Dane said...

Aw, what a great post, Beagles! Brilliant tips - I'm already quite good at some but I'll have to get practising on the others!!

By the way, have you seen my latest post? It's about my playdate with Cookie & Cinnamon...well, it was a revelation for my humans meeting beagles properly in person! Hsin-Yi was amazed and delighted with their attention and energy (especially after they discovered that she had SAUSAGE in her pockets!) - she said she didn't realise what "food-motivated" REALLY meant until she met them! Hee! hee! And, Paul, of course, is more in love with Beagles than ever. Come over and check out the cute video of us meeting!

Slobbers,
Honey the Great Dane

You forgot to mention that cuteness also keeps you in the feasts! Mmm... feasts.

You are professionals at proper schnozzle/paw placement. Well done!!

I'm taking notes...

Rose said...

How sweet! I'm so envious of dogs that are so camera friendly. MaggieMae is too camera shy for me to get very good pictures of her!

knittinwolf said...

Awesome, fabulous, wonderful, great photos....love, love, love them! Happy DOT!

Chester said...

I feel cuter already after my lesson from the Masters of Cuteness. Hah! That could be your nickname! Whaddya think? Huh? Huh? Huh?

Woofs and cuter than before slobbers,
Chester aka:Brown Bear

The Army of Four said...

Well, now you've done it. Mom passed out after seeing all those cute Beagle poses. The one of you with your paws by the snooter was the one that made her start gasping for air... then it was just all over with that "hang dog" look. Me? I like the silly one best, or the line-up of all 4 of you.
Make sure you see Ammy's post today (Thursday) - Dave was really enjoying the squishy duck you sent!
Play bows and grab the smelling salts,

Oh those cute photos are sooooo cute! To think that you will be having the cutest little puppies soon to make even cutier photos (if possible).

Just as I have firmly promised myself to take up the Thursday Colour meme again the colour is black and tan? *sigh* Where the whatever do I find black and tan? *sigh again*

Hugs,
Carolina

We have learned some new tricks from you today. Thanks! You all are so adorable in the pics. That new camera your momma got does a great job. The purple pics are pretty too.

Thank you for that superb lesson on cuteness. We think we pretty well, but examples of cute with finesse are appreciated! Misty & Sasha.

Eric said...

Cuteness overload! Sugar and spice and all things nice ...but crickey, I was gobsmacked to see just WHAT big boys are made of in Alfies last post. Feel quite inadequate on both fronts now...

Wiry lovies and kisses, Eric xxxx

Kathy R said...

I didn't know you could put that much cuteness in one blog post!

The Devil Dog said...

Those are very good examples of playing the cuteness card. I can try, but a lot of times, it doesn't work. Mom has caught on to my ways.
