Louise's pug tip for puppies #4: when sitting on a lap, try to choose one that is sitting at a kitchen table if at all possible. An alternative approach would be to choose one in front of a coffee table, but only when hors d'ouvres are being served.
To do this properly though, timing is everything.
The picture in today's post shows a failed attempt at snagging a bite to eat while in a lap. Louise hopped up into my lap AFTER we were done eating. In fact, this picture was taken on the night that I installed more ram into our laptop. Note the look of disappointment on Louise's face when she realized there was no food on the table. They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but one of the things it did not capture was the huge 'sigh' that came from Louise when she realized her plan had backfired.
