It’s often a matter of perspective, but most pets are subtle when it comes to cries for attention: A horse might gently rub its muzzle against your hand, while a dog will look back and forth between you and a Frisbee until you get the hint.
Cats … well, they’re more likely to abandon the bounds of civility altogether and just sprawl on or attack whatever you’ve been focusing on for the last hour. And the dog in the clip below isn’t exactly a master of nuance either.
“Grammy was just trying to pick up her precious grandbaby, but the family’s dog was not about to be left out,” reads the caption accompanying the video, which was posted earlier this month. “Watching this hilarious pup keep a hold of grammy’s arm will make you laugh so hard.”
“C’mon Grammy, pick the baby up,” an off-camera voice cajoles the grandmother, sandwiched on a couch between an infant and flailing dog.
Flopped on its back, the dog wraps its arms around her elbow and forearm several times, implying a good scratch on the chest is definitely in order.
“I don’t know why you can’t pick the baby up,” the off-camera voice chides.
People cannot get enough of this hilarious clip and the dog’s face. Just look at that!
