The Master Of Manipulation

Hi everyone! This is how I get my Mom to play with me by using these easy manipulation tips anyone can follow.
Kisses and Tail Wags,
Dachshund Nola
"Momma, will you play with me?"
The key here is to be perfectly sweet and innocent looking, making your eyes as round as possible.
Haha! Success
 "Whatever Nola wants, Nola gets"
Gotcha!!!

Rrraaarrrw!

Dachshund Mommy: I know, I know. My dog is strange and possibly evil. But I love her anyway
I can do this laying down. I am the master!
If you peeps say no more playing, just give them this look:
No words needed here.

Works. Every. Single. Time.
And that my furiends is how it's done.

    Those big round eyes are fabulous.

    I love the thought of you singing "Whatever Nola wants, Nola gets".

    Oh, and I have a grey and white flat squeaky just like yours!

  22. You are irresistible, Nola. And, you're an acrobat too. Wow!

  23. You are a Master, Nola! You should do a DVD for new pups to teach them the tricks of the trade!

  24. Thanks for the tips, Nola. Lady says we should all be life-long learners. An old dog CAN learn new tricks. Some stoopid human must have said that.

  27. Nola....
    Wow, that is quite the look that you've got going!! ;-}
    Yesterday evening, my Rose wanted to play. While I was eating greasy chicken and potatoes. I guiltily told Rose "sorry, I can't", but she refused to quit!! My persistent girl.... A plush squeak toy was within her mouth and Rose ran around like some crazy creature from place to place!! Then of course, I played with my little girl!! ;op
    She did not give me "the look", however!! ;-]
