The "Look"

We were on vacation in a remote rural area at a lumberjack festival. We brought our dogs with us. During the festival this big fat farmer in overalls comes up to us with his friend and points at our dogs tail and says "look at that dog, he has a tail like a piggy, I never seen a dog like that!" and just starts busting up laughing at him.

The dog, facing the other direction, turns completely around and looks the guy straight in the eye with the most hateful look.

The guy just immediately shuts up, shocked and just walked away. Then we laughed hysterically!

Good for the fur babies…how rude of the farmer...he obviously doesn't know class when he sees it...great story...

Funny how many people think that his tail is not natural

Isn't it funny how these dogs know who is werth their time and who are not!:)

That's funny! Awww poor piggy tails πŸ˜ƒ πŸ˜ƒ ROFL!!!

Just proves to me what I've already thought. These dogs are are smarter than most people I meet and I would also add, I like the dogs better in most cases.:D

I would just like to ditto B Boy's sentiments and add to that an Amen Brother! πŸ˜‰ πŸ™‚ πŸ˜ƒ

**My three boys make every day special for me. πŸ˜ƒ

There's darn few people I'd say that about! :rolleyes:**

Hey, hate to be rude, but maybe the B look was saying to him, Well, I might have a Pig tail but you farmerboy have a PIG body. haha!!!!!!!!

Do I EVER agree with Basenji Boy's comment. I work two part-time jobs, one of which is at a Doggie Day Care and I love dealing with the dogs and not people!!!:D

I do wish Hollie had the curly tail. They are so cute! I got her from a shelter and her tail was already cut, it is about 3 inches long.

Basenji seem to be the masters of the non-verbal put down. And I also agree with Basenji Boy's comment, reminds of that bumper sticker: the more I know of people, the better I like my dog.

What is the correct plural of Basenji? 'Basenjis' or 'Basenji'? A Yodel of Besenjis?
