A Lesson By Professor Lee - The Feed Me Eyes

 Dear pals,

While I am a very talented dog, one of my greatest talents is being able to use my eyes and my focus to get the Lady to give me some of her food. It is like I am hypnotizing her. As many of my readers are celebrating Thanksgiving today, I thought this was the perfect time for the lesson.

Let me show you.

First, stare intently at whatever she is eating. This is easiest if you can be on the couch beside her, but can also work from the floor.

Then, with the same intensity, look at your person. Stomping your feet to ensure attention is also helpful.

Let me show you the correct posture when you are sitting on the floor and your person is in a chair.

Phod clearly needs some more work, he is looking not interested and not staring directly at the person. I will keep trying to teach him. He may be hopeless, but my stare gets him treats because the Lady feels bad he doesn't get as many treats. So I guess I am hypnotizing her for the both of us. 

Give this a try with your person and let me know if you get extra treats! 


  1. oooh that is a smart trick.. is it essential to start the drooling modus or is that better for phase2?

  2. It works every time, doesn't it, Hailey!

  3. Works like a charm. Thanks. Dilly Dog

  4. It's a great idea to teach others your trick for getting treat. Bo said to tell you he already knows this and his head is really really big and the closer the food gets to our mouths the closer his head gets to our mouths. He said try this just keep getting closer and closer while stomping your feet.

  5. Oh Lee your eyes are mesmerizing and gawgeous!! I'd give you whatever I was eating too.
    Hugs to you, Phod, Lady and Man

  6. That is a great lesson, Hailey. We both are close to the same level of mastery that you are but Walter is at the head of our class.

  8. But Lee, Phod is freeloading on your efforts, and I am not sure that is fair.

  9. She looks like a puppy there! :-)

  10. You should get whatever you want with those eyes, Lee. Great technique!

  11. Sunny is learning fast....I may have to hide this from her! BOL!

  12. Lee, nothing ever works with the Momster, but Dad is really easy:)

    Gobble, Gobble and Happy Thanksgiving.

  14. YES, L. I have tried this strategy numerous times and it always works! I hope you enjoyed your snack.

    Love and licks,

  15. Boy, you have that look down pat, Lee! Talk about a pro.
