I was a bit uninspired on the blogging front today, so I turned to the good people of Twitter for suggestions. @jenpot eventually struck gold with the idea of cute things your dog does when you're not paying them your full attention. Her pooch goes the eyelash-batting route of picking up the fetch ball and quietly dropping it at her feet - a subtle hint, in the dog world.
Jen also added:
I'm Riley's 'mum' btw and she has thousands. Absolute best is that she grumps when she's sleeping, especially if she stretches
Here's what some of our other Twitter friends had to say:
@OKHumane My dog Oliver wads an impossibly large piece of his blanket in his mouth and starts whistling as he falls asleep.
@warriorgrll @misterbenji crosses his front paws when he lies down. It looks very refined I must say!
[Ed's note: I love that Mister Benji has his own Twitter feed... and he's certainly not the only pet that does]
@DarrenKW The dog we had a few years ago (a retired gun dog) was completely silent, apart from barking in her sleep!
@sammcarthur he hates post so much he retrieves envelopes from the bin ages after postman been, hates postmen, knows their orange jackets!
@sallyhems - mine always used to 'answer' the door when a doorbell went on the TV, despite us never having a doorbell....?
I'm sure you all have loads of examples of your own to add, and that's what the comments are for! Thank you to all those who contributed.
