Lola loves popcorn. Actually, Lola likes most food...but popcorn is one of her favorites. So when I sat down this weekend with a big bowl if it...she plopped down next to me & gave me the face.

She tends to get in a little closer so it was more like this face.

I have a very hard time not caving to those big brown eyes & jowly mush face. So I throw her a couple pieces & then figure it's a good time to practice her Leave It.

"I'm failing to see how this is fun for me."

Wow! That's very impressive Lola! I can do "leave it" with food but then I always do a song and dance routine where I whine a lot and rock back and forth.


ps. Sherman--I'm so manly sometimes I don't even lift my leg. You can totally be the Indian because you are, indeed, a Macho Man. Even with pink stitches.

Never mind those eyes. How can you resist those ears?! Lola is sooooo cute.

Toby said...

Oh Lola, I don't see how that is any fun whatsoever. I say Mom just let you go crazy with the whole bowl of popcorn. Now that would be fun!!!


Ruby Bleu said...

I just don't know how you do it! I'd be all in that bowl. I guess I need to practice 'leave it' a little more, huh?

Lots of Licks, Ruby

lola, mom puts green TABASCO on her popcorn and I think she does it just so she doesn't have to share with us. I could never sit by that bowl and not chow down!

I love Boy scout popcorn the best!
But your begging face is great,I need to perfect that.My begging face is a blank stare almost trying to hypnotise mommy!Does not work on daddy

Cubby said...

That is crazy! If I was doing that, Dakota would have run me over and eaten all the popcorn. Lola has so much self control!

Dear Lola

If you lived here you wouldn't have any manners at all cuz you'd look at Mom and she'd cave and let you run the house. It's true.


PS That bowl of popcorn wouldn't have lasted 10 seconds here.

Boo said...

wow, lola i don't understand why do you need to listen to mom. you are free to grab it from the bowl.

wet wet licks


Amber-Mae said...

Mmmmm, popcorn is nice! But it's not my kind of food. You're a smart girl Lola!

Love licks,

Oh Lola, your mom's so cruel. You were only trying to share the FATS with her right?

FleasGang said...

Popcorn is Simon's favorite too! I always give him the first piece. And if I layed that bowl down in front of him like that, he'd bury his head in it and not come up for air until it was all gone. Lola's a good girl :-)

Popcorn is delicious. I like to eat with the movie. However, being likely to grow fat is uneasy. :)

Sasha said...

Lola, how mean! Eat the popcorn!
That bowl wouldn't last 10 seconds here.

Seadra & Zoe said...

Oh Lola, We've never seen a better puppy dog face ever. You are the cutest.

We love all your new collars. How stylish!! Our Mom is in the market for new collars for us. She's going to check those out.

Love, Seadra and Zoe

Torture your mom is torturing you Lola. That is not right.

PreciOus said...

Bravo Lola, Bravo! I won't be able to keep my bum bum on the ground if there's food around!


Ike said...

That's just plain cruel. I think you should stick a pile of cookies under mom's nose and say leave it!

Tadpole said...

*GASP* The HORROR! The ABUSE! The TORTURE! What is your mom DOING to you, my sweet BFF Lola Sprout Beyonce the Princess Diva?!?! Making you just SIT there?!?! That's it. I'm calling the ASPCA - enough is enough!!!

Lady Kaos said...

Wow Lola! I don't think I could have done that! You're amazing!!!

Lorenza said...

Hi, Lola.
Your are so sweet!
One think I know for sure. If I had a bowl of popcorn in front of me I wouldn't "leave them". If they are in my face, sure they are for me!
Have a nice day

Duke & Gidget said...

Oh man Lola, we would have dove right into that bowl. Then we would have started fighting because Duke would try to hog all the popcorn. Then, for good measure, we would have pooped on the carpet when we were done. Perhaps we could use a little training.........Nah!

PerfectTosca said...

You know when Leave It stinks the most? At dinner time! She puts the bowl down after I starved half the day and I actually drool while she does Leave it.

The Woman forced me to learn what she calls and Emergency Recall. That's when I gotta come RUNNING. You gotta use a special code word so you know it's the Emergency Recall. Mine is, Tosca, Red Light!!! It's never even an emergency but I guess it's for an emergency when it does happen. Whatever. Pains in the patootie, those humans are.

Sitka and Tia's BLAWG! said...

Wow, that is a good face Lola. You must how to teach me to get the real pouty face. I am working on it, but yours is great!!!

Balboa said...

Oh man, that's just torture. How dare she, if I was you Lola I would dive right into that bowl.

Though, I am impressed with your listening, but still not fair!!!!!

Rachael said...

hahaha! That last pic is hilarious! Lola's face says it all!

Stanley said...


You're AMAZING! Though, I don't see what fascination this skill holds for the hoomans. (Don't tell me you don't mind. I saw that look on your face when she told you to leave it).

Now my girl is really going to think I need to go to school. I forget, were you home-schooled or formally trained, girl?

Goober love,
