During the lockdown, many of us have developed new skills and even became more enterprising. And it seems that dogs have also realized that they need to learn new handy proficiencies.
An unnamed pup became viral on Twitter after her owner posted a picture of her that showed her new skills: begging. And it had even become a routine!
The begging pup
A verified Twitter user named Tommy Vietor posted a picture of his dog giving him a knowing look. Tommy said that during quarantine, his pup was able to use a combination of adorable staring and intense sitting to bargain her meal for dinner. And the said plea was to bring the dinnertime down to 3:30 in the afternoon from the usual 5:00. But on Tommy’s post, the dog gave him the look at 2:50 in the afternoon.
Tommy posted another picture of his dog, saying that things had escalated. In the following picture, one could see the cute dog pawing her owner’s foot.
Tommy explained in a subsequent post that begging for dinner wasn’t only his pup’s lockdown talent. He said that the pup learned to inch over and lie down on his head at five in the morning to get early breakfast.
People shared the same stories about their dogs
Tommy’s post about his dog had received more than 60K likes, over 3K retweets, and 2K comments. The anecdote resonated with dog parents on Twitter, with many of them sharing similar stories.
One Twitter user said that his dog seemed to beg to adjust the dinner from 7:00 to 5:30 and below. He even accompanied the post with a picture of his dog flashing a convincing look.
Another pet parent shared a similar tale. However, his dog did things differently; his pup threw some tantrums and initiated forceful couch crowding. The said dog even managed to push her dinner to a time where her owner considered adding another course to her meal.
