My way

I want to go with my grandma!



A bat?


No! ... Me!

Today when my mom came home, we went out for a walkie, a short one I must say! She said something about having many things to do at home. I had my dinner and then earlier than usual we went to our house. My mom started coming up and down carrying things. Then she went to the closet and was arranging things there too! While she was doing that I went close to the stairs and started to howl! My mom asked me what was going on. I tried to tell her that it wasn't the time to be at our house and that I wanted to go with my grandma again! Do you think she took me there?? No.... of course! She just gave me a treat and that was the end of the howling! Silly mom. Now, I know what to do to get more treats!!!
Tell me, what kind of tactics do you use to get what you want??
Have a good night

serendipity said...

That was very clever of you, Lorenza! I love your bat imitation, so cute!

Huskee Boy said...

Hi Lorenza,
My 'sad' face usually works.. or else it'd be my 'cute' face..

Simba said...

You do look funny hanging over the stairs. Very bat like.

Maggie & Mitch said...

I love your nose and lips picture! It's too cute, Lorenza!
I sit and lift my paw when I want something really, really badly! Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't, but I try!

Love ya lots,


Nice series of pics Lorenza. That one really does look like a bat! As for getting treats, well we just give mum the sad puppy look with our big brown eyes - that seems to work very well.

Ya sabes como encuentro los treats.

Eres muy guapa con tu nariz y lengua pequeña.

Que pases un buen fin de semana.



Mojo said...

Love those pics of you as a bat! Brilliant!
To get what depends on what it is. If it is an object, I just pretend not to care then steal it. If it is something I can't reach, like a cat, I make awful sad noises or bark. And if I just want my parents to do as I say, I give them such cute looks they have to give in. Sometimes!


Harry said...

I just try and look as handsome as possible, generally seems to do the trick!

Toodle pip,

TH said...

Hi Lorenza!
Adored the bat! My tactics to get something are to make eyes sad, many licked and to bark!
Have a great weekend!

Love and licks

Joe Stains said...

I jump up and down and I yell, a lot!

Amber-Mae said...

Hmmm, I have no tactics at all but when I usually want to play ball with my hoomans, I would purposely push the ball under the couch & will dig for it. My hoomans will have no choice but to get their butts off the couch & dig it out for me & throw the ball. After that, I will do it again & again & again till I'm sick of it.

Love licks,
Solid Gold Dancer

Sophie Brador said...

Lorenza, Did I miss your B-day? That deserves another treat for you too.


Ashley said...

Hi Lorenza... that is so cute! Maxy gets mad when I am at the computer or reading and tries to stand on the keyboard or newspaper. If that doesn't work, he makes a mean face and barks one time. Then I realize he just wants attention, so we cuddle!

Crikit, Sparky & Ginger said...

Hi Lorenza! love your pictures... such a model girl. howling? we're gonna try that next. Sparky stares intently, Crikit gets real real close and wags her tail and breaths her bad breath and I (Ginger) gives my baby eyes or I grunt when staring... they seem to like my grunts lol

Lots of Love Licks thanks for visiting us often. Tx trio wagging out

Byron y Sinver said...

Desde luego siempre nos salimos con la nuestra...

Ricky Pepper said...

I put my little feets on my mommy's leg and give her "pick me up" face so she'll hold me. My mom is a total sucker for puppy eyes!

Cuando quiero algo pongo mi cara de triste y comienzo a llorar.

Arabella said...

Thanks for the birthday wishes Lorenza!

If I want anything from my mom I usually whine or sit down and give her a high five (she loves that one every time).

Sparky said...

Ha ha ha, great pictures Lorenza! You do look sorta like a bat when you're upside down! Hehe.


The Brat Pack said...

We love those upside down pics of you!


Patience-please said...

Those are some of the cutest pictures EVER!!!

We bark and woo and stare. The Servant is s-l-o-w, but eventually she gets it.

Hi Lorenza,

I have sent you an email - please resend the calander pic to the email address I provided in the email I sent you.

Thanks buddy !


Momo :) said...

Lorenza, all these shots are fantastic!!

Deefor said...

I like the way you can turn yourself into a bat! Scary! Use it next Halloween. When I want a treat, I sit and make my I'm-sitting-for-you face. Makes them feel guilty and I get the treat. That's a trick you can teach your people.


Charlie said...

You're smart, Lorenza!

- Charlie

p.s. I didn't see your name on the Dogs with Blogs calendar list -- send your picture in!!

PreciOus said...

Hi Lorenza!

And I thought your ear is really a bat! *Giggle*

I'll use whinings to get my way!


Maggie said...

Hi Lorenza..
I have one sister like youuuuu..
can I add you as friend?? :) I'm new here...

Byron y Sinver said...

Hola Lorenza... Te aclaro lo de mi pelo (Xinver): los nudos se deshacen con los dedos (de los Jefes), es decir, a mano. Si no se hace con frecuencia y se descuida al final no hay más remedio que cortar el pelo con la máquina. Saludos.

umekotyan said...

The photograph of the ear is lovely.
It is the tea eyes that look like bat.
It is looked at to come on.
Let's enjoy a happy weekend so. :)

from loved ume tyan

Luckie Girl said...

Hey Lorenza,
I have got to learn from you. I never get my way around here. *phiff*

Roxie, Sammy and Andy said...

Lorenza, we don't really have any good way to get treats. Mom gives us treats when we go to our crates at night or to our pen during the day when she is at work. We get crunchy cookies after meals to help clean our teeth. Other than that, Mom has to be in a generous mood to give us a treat.

Thank you for coming back to visit us after our long period of not blogging. We weren't sure if any of our friends would come back but you did!

We are sorry we missed your birthday because we weren't reading too many blogs either. You were a beautiful birthday girl. Mom always comments about how pretty you are. Anyway, we hope you had a wonderful day and got lots of goodies.

Bark at you later,
Roxie, Sammy & Andy

4xBs said...

Hi Lorenza, you sure are a smart girl. we did not know that howling would get treats for us. we learn a lot of good things from you.

Anonymous said...

Good work with the treats - I do the same thing except I bark.

I'll go outside and bark a bit then stop and come inside and wait for a treat. Unfortuntely HM seems to have caught on to this and doesn't give me the treats anymore so I'm going to have to come up with something else!!


The Husky in the Window said...

You are a very clever girl. I am impressed and have taken notes. I'll let you know how that works.

Husky Hugs, MayaMarie

Peanut said...

Hmm that doesn't work for me. I just get in trouble. Looking sadly at my mom gets me treats sometimes though

Stanley said...


You are photogenic at ANY angle. I especially love the bat ears photo!

Not only that, but you are a pretty clever girl too. As for me, I usually go sit right in front of my girl, extend my paw, and gently place it on her knee, or arm, or whatever is closest. Then I stare, and give her my sad goober eyes. If that doesn't work, I lay down right next to where she is with a big SIGH, and act like I'm depressed. I usually get something for that oscar-winning performance.

Goober love,

You have a good pouty face to get your way. WE are all for more treats, or going to see our grandparents! Thanks for visiting our blog!

Isis said...

I love those pictures of you peekin! They're great!

Comet and BLU said...

Lorenza - good job scaring my girl. She thought you really looked a lot like a bat - and she doesn't like bats. Hehehehe.

Hana said...

Hee hee, I like your bat picture!!

Girasol said...
