Pack Leader

According to the Dog Whisperer it is important to be the pack leader. Although this works most of the time in our family, occasionally Lizzy decides that she, in fact, is the pack leader. My husband attempted to use the computer this evening but Lizzy had other ideas (she wanted to be the center of attention).
First, she tried to block access to the computer.

She then tried to stop the typing with her head.

When that failed she tried lifting his hand from the keyboard.

Perhaps a paw on the hand will work better.

Ok, let's try burrowing beneath the hand.

Maybe with both paws.

Hmmm...if I lay on the keys that will work!

Ok, maybe if I use both paws to hold his hand down.

Meanwhile, Kasey is scratching her back...

while Calvin snoozes.

Eventually Lizzy decides that I am a better choice (pushover) and relaxes with a smile on her face!

Hint, hint, hint... put down the keyboard and pay attention to those who love you... no, those who respect you, uhh, those who protect you, nah. Never mind.

I loved your post...your dogs are wonderful! Is Lizzy a Rat Terrier? She looks a lot like mine & boy are they attention hogs!! This made me laugh so much because she is just like mine, always trying to make me pet her when ever I am trying to do something without her. Adorable pups!!
P.S. Love the smile =)

What adorable pictures of your dogs, I just loved seeing them! That was some fast camera action on your part to capture the whole scene on film, making it a pleasure for us all to share it with you! Very nice. Debby

Such a cute post!!!! We LOVE to watch the Dog Whisperer! {especially when it's an all day marathon on NatG}

Your little furry humans are so cute with such personality, {and they are certainly some little camera hams}

Ceaser's #1 fan & wanna be pack leader,
everything vintage

Ah, Lizzy...we fabulous girls need our attention, don't we?!? How CUTE is this?!? My kitties and doggies do the same thing to us. the cats will often lay across the keyboard, not giving us the option to do anything else but pay attention to them. And we always do...always quit what we're doing and offer some loving. They do find ways to get their messages across, don't they? LOVE your post! Thanks also for visiting my blog and offering your kind words on my recent post!!

Happy Thursday!

Lizzy and Kasey are adorable.

How funny that Lizzy just does not want you work on the computer and wants all your attention.
Dogs are very clever aren't they.

She so wanted attention didn't she! I loved the photos.

Lizzy? Would her name have something to do with "Lizzy" from a certain Pride and Predjudice movie? It's funny how I associated her name with that. Seems befitting. Loved the blog. One can tell she really has natural beauty from the last photo...LOL...Hugzzz...Tiina...
