In this one, I'm standing right in front of where our treats are kept:
Unfortunately, I forgot to look Mom right in the eyes. That part is crucial! I had to try again.
That was a good one. I was over in the breakfast room, so Mom wasn't sure what I wanted. That can work to your benefit. As I recall, I got to go outside and got a treat. Bipeds will fall totally under your control and do anything they can to please you if you master this look - trust me!
Mom liked this next one so much that she did some special effects on the photo itself:
|THE Harp Seal Look|
And me? Oh... I got exactly what I wanted! Check it out:
|"I'm not sure this is enough ... I'm sooooooo hungry ... "|
See how I was able to take the treat and STILL do the Harp Seal Look? Oh, my, does that take focus! And you know what happened next, don't you?
|"Why, yes, thank you; I WOULD like another treat!"|
That's right - another piece of the wonderful chicken jerky our friends Mochi and Bali sent us! It's so good! Mom rations it; we hardly ever get more than one little taste!
I've taught my brothers to master the look - and you can learn it, too! Just focus, look as sad as you can, and try to extend the outer corners of your eyes. Zim is aces at it now; I'm so proud of him! And Dave - it took him a while, but he's got it! I'm sure you can do this to! Give it a try - and let me know how it goes for you!
