“This is Bogart, the master of the house and ruler of all he sees. He’s beyond cute but a relentless little demon. I took this after peeking around the doorway at him. Classic baroo! He’d love to be on C.O. so he could enlarge his legion of admirers.” -Andrea S.
What’ll a puzzled poodle puppeh muddle when his fuzzy noodle is in a puzzled fuddle?
“This is my handsome boy, Sam, barooing just a bit in puzzlement when asked, “who’s a good boy??” Isn’t the answer obvious?” -Photo taken by Pat G.
[Really, ah don' know what that means. I nose that right this very second it's the Foist Day O' Spring, and I aim to celebrate by snorfing this TOOLIP.]
“This is my friend Kristen’s pup, Leo. She took this picture of him smelling a Spring flower. He was a very good boy and was only smelling, didn’t try to eat the tulip, though the look on his face says he might have wanted to. He’s coming from Baltimore to visit me and my kitties later this month and I’m super psyched to meet him for the first time. What a super cutie-head!” -Tracy G.
Unheard of. The C.O. Glossary flatly states this does not occur:
Dogspeak for “Whut the…?” Frequently accompanied by the Canine Tilt and/or wrinkled brow for enhanced effect. Occasionally, animals which are not dogs have been known to have this cute-ism ascribed to them, but this is never appropriate. Dogs just have the face for it, plain & simple. Cats don’t. Fish don’t. Cockatiels? Please.
Do our eyeballs deceive us?
U prolly woke up this morning and wondered, “Can a Possum do a Baroo?” (We know you did.) That mystery has been solved!
From Leslie G.: “Avocado was a rescue opossum and she definitely won over many hearts with this photo. I carried her in a pouch for months while she healed from a dog attack and so she could get accustomed to hoomins. She’s now an Animal Ambassador at the Museum where I work. Took this pic when she was just 3 months old or so.” Read all about it at NBC Los Angeles.com.
Recently, Yahoo Shine asked the question, “Why Do Dogs Tilt Their Heads?” YS has fancy statistics and lots of big words to explain how head tilting helps dogs hear better or see better. Um, Baroo? Think again, friends. We think the technical term is ’cause it’s cute! Meg first proved eet to the world back in 2006.

“This is Herbert hanging on the patio with my three other little dogs. He is from a rescue in Southern Missouri. He is the sweetest little dog, and a very good Baroo-er. Hope you love him as much as I do!” -Pugs4me.
[Oh, we do. We do! -Ed]
