Just not the right words. This picture shows you a pitiful pup, desperate for attention (note the rag – a particular favorite – she’s offering up as incentive).
What it doesn’t show is Poppy in the other room, trying to entice her with squeaky toys. Or that it’s cold and dark outside, so no one wants to hang out in the backyard. Or that Betty just doesn’t want to go to sleep at 8:00 pm.
