Dog Video: Callie Playing Dead — Except Her Tail Gives Her Away

This is one of the dogs at Rolling Dog Ranch, a pet sanctuary. Her name is Callie, and she is a blind Dachshund. She pretends to not to hear the workers at the ranch when they’re calling all the dogs to go out one last time before bed. She rolls over and pretends she’s dead … except her tail gives her away.

    Cute little ole Callie….who could not love such a sweet, sweet little dog. She just wants someone to take charge and sweet talk her.

    In my dog’s last year, as his heart was failing, I would announce the late night potty walk and he would thump his tail and lay there like a little marshmallow, knowing I was a sucker for coming over and picking him up and carrying him outside. Once I put him on the sidewalk, he was all energy and wanted to investigate everything!

    Guess we know who trained whom!

    It’s all about attention.

    I’ll put my foot down…right on her bouncy belly! Dog are so funny. You can see the little gears working in her little brain. “If I am really sweet and cute, they won’t make me go outside. See my happy-meter going?”

    We are soooo whipped.

    someone should make a clock out of that-like the old felix the cat clock where the tail moves…

    i’m sort of facinated by the ‘ play dead’ dog trick. however did that evolve?
