Trick and Treat Tuesday?

Many of woo have commented on the different styles the OP Pack have both with sofa snoozing and sunbathing. Here is another example of the variety in their mannerisms.

"OK, who wants a cookie?"

Very food-oriented, Dakota and Thunder are front and center immediately AND notice how well they are looking at the camera when Mom says "SIT."

"OK, now, DOWN."

"No problem, Mom, we're down and we're ready - now where's that darn cookie?"
(Be sure to take note of Thunder's missing paw - that's his trademark pose.)

Now, woo might be wondering why the third OP Pack member, Phantom, isn't here. Well, he really doesn't care much about food, and so it is almost as if he is doing Mom a favor by coming over. Here he is now.

"OK, Mom, I am here now, but I am not looking at woo."

"Nope, I just can't look."

"All right, all right, here I am, I am sitting, I am looking. Can we get this over with?"

"What do you mean, DOWN? I don't even really want the darn cookie."

"So there, I am DOWN, but I will pawsitively NOT look up. Just put the cookie right here in front of me and go away."

So, what do you think, do they all get those cookies?

Woos, the OP Pack's Mom

Pee Ess, Sorry for the sad post yesterday but we were thinking how good that lady was to try to save Reba and it was a good reminder to us of how good our lives are. We will try to post a happy "tail" soon.

Dexter said...

I award you for not putting up with those pointless commands the peoples give. I, sadly, have been seduced by cookies in to lying down or sitting when I'm not even tired. I will have to try out some of your moves next time.


Unknown said...

Gee, I always have to do those same things for a cookie, what is up with that? sit, down, so boring... why can't we dig in the yard or go for a walkie for cookies?

I think he does that to be nonchalant he really wants it. So I think they should all get one, seriously they all did what you asked. =)

Princess Eva and Brice said...

You should see the difference at our house. We both love treats but Brice has to doggie push-ups and lots of other things to get a treat. I just have to be cute.

P.S. Even though Reba story is sad, it's still good to share it. Reminds us that we have a good life and reminds our people that they need to help the unfortunate ones.

Steve, Kat, & Wilbur said...

Yes, I think they should get cookies.

I can't tell for sure, but it looks in the picture like Dakota is doing MY signature move, which is the "hover-when-told-down". I find that I can jump up much faster if I just hover. Mom has gotten wise to this move though and she always double checks and then says, "All the way, Steve". Boo.


Amber-Mae said...

You guys are very obedient dogs & attentive too! I hope you guys got a cookie each after all that...

Yes, cookies for everyone! Maybe phantom would like some cheese or peanut butter instead?

Hugs, Kodak

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

Of course everyone gets a cookie. Funny we do the same thing but Callie and Louie get the down sign. I have to nudge them since they don't hear so they don't miss it..

Amber and Nala said...

Hi, thanks for visiting my blog! Wow, Thunder and Dakota....you are soooo ready for that treat! I do the same thing! I wonder why Phantom doesn't care as much....maybe he is just being coy and hoping he will get more for not being overly excited. :)


Kelli said...

Hi OP Pack!
I think all three of you deserve a cookie! Thanks for stopping by my blog! I would love for you to play my Bingo game! I will need your email address to send the Bingo card code over. Also, what color bingo marker would you like?

The Thundering Herd said...

Way to train your human Phantom. Make them provide cookies by acting like you don't really want cookies. Reverse Siberian Psychology (which is a real oxymoron!)

Katie and Gizmo said...

Aww Phantom are you a lil bit shy? I totally can relate!

You all indeed should get a cookie maybe 2 cookies for Phantom seeing how he did it even though you could tell he didn't really want to.
Can I get a cookie too?


Anonymous said...

My mom says this reminds her of my 3 human siblings when they were growing up - the middle child just had to be different - and he still does. I wonder if Phantom would act the same way if he was an "only dog"?

See ya!

Bae Bae said...

I think all you doggies should get a cookie for doing so well. ;)

Lorenza said...

Sure you all deserve those cookies!
I love cookies but I am not good with commands!
Kisses and hugs

well this sucks said...

I can't get over how beautiful those eyes are! Haha.

And yes! I definitely twitch in my sleep too! I guess we know who Elmo learns from!

Jack & Moo said...

Such cute Siberian faces, how could your mom torture woo like that?
Enjoy the cookies!

You are all so BE-U-TIFUL! Mommy says she wants to get me a sister that looks like you guys! BOL Keep up the good sitting and laying down! Phantom, maybe she just hasn't found your favorite kinda cookie! :) Always come and check!


Stella said...

Phantom and Stella are alike in this way. I will offer Stella a cookie, she will accept it, and go somewhere with it. Then maybe a couple of hours later I will see it by a chair, and then a little later, see her crunching away on it. No big deal. The only thing she will "do" things for is cooked chicken!

Stella's Mom, telling on her!
