For this blog, I want to talk to you about a strange occurrence that seems to come about this time of year. No, it is not the rites of spring or anything like that, but something I like to refer to as the “Return of the Puparazzi.”
For young pups (those 12 months and younger) you may have never encountered the “Puparazzi” before. In simplest terms, it is your human parent(s) putting a square-shaped box to their eye, aiming it right at you, and instructing you to “look cute and to look at mommy/daddy.” It is followed with a “click” like noise and sometimes, but not always, a blinding (though temporary) bright light.
Sightings of the puparazzi seem to increase during this time of year (but don’t be fooled, a sighting can occur at any time of the year.) Here is one thing you must never, ever, forget –being “cute” has a price and make sure you collect (whether it is a snack, bone, squeaky toy–you name it.) You earned it.
For some reason, these sightings seem to occur around the same time as the Labrador Life Line’s annual Cyber Dog Show. The last time I checked the Cyber Dog Show started on Friday and ends on June 15th–plenty of opportunities for the Puparazzi to strike–so be on your guard these next couple of weeks.
Until the next time….
