Here I am in my kennel, where sometimes I have to hang out when Mom and Papa eat dinner. Ok, so this usually happens when I sit on the floor and whine, so I am "sent to my room." So then I try my "oh poor rescue dog needs a home" look by putting my snout through the opening. You guessed it- that does not work either. But hey, you can't blame a little dog for tryin' right?
