Cats and dogs don’t exactly like having their tails stepped on. And animal owners aren’t typically excited about it, either.
But it happens.
Some pets are quick to forgive and forget, but Ralphie the Newfoundland knows how to hold a grudge.
Ralphie doesn’t want an apology. He doesn’t want a treat. He just wants his owner Bee to feel bad.
“Hey, what’s wrong? Are you mad at me?” she asks.
Ralph just stares blankly ahead in contempt. This is a hard pill to swallow.
How could his human do this?
Several long moments pass by before Ralphie casts a cold, grudging gaze over his shoulder.
“Did I do something to you?” Bee persists. “Why are you looking at me like that?”
“Don’t give me that,” Ralphie must be thinking. “You know exactly what you did. And you better apologize.”
Ralphie seems pretty mad at his mama. He’s not even going to look at her.
“I’m sorry! I’m sorry!” Bee relents.
Ralphie finally accepts the apology, and works his way back onto Bee’s lap.
Let the kisses commence!
Bee and her family picked up Ralphie a few years ago. They adopted another Newfoundland named Boss, around the same time. Their less furry “little brothers,” Lenox, Cruz, and Tegan, have had years to watch these doggy pros at work. They’ve learned how to make the same puppy dog eyes their pet mentors have used on their parents.
Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t.
Ralphie has the hang of it, at least.
