As promised from last week, we are answering this letter:
Whenever I lay on my back trying to cool off my under parts, my human has to come over and kiss my belly. Then she pulls all 4 of my feet one at a time making these silly noises. How do I get her to stop doing this?

Dear annoyed and embarrassed,
Don't you just hate it when humans do the belly kissing and that other thing. I think they call it "raspberries". I know from personal experience there is a few special ways to deal with this bad human behavior problem. Unfortunately, most will get you in trouble. With humans you need to do it at the same time as they are doing the naughty behavior. I hear they don't seem to understand delayed consequences like chewing up a purse strap when they aren't looking. Here are my suggestions:
1.) Cover up in cute doggy outfits. The more frilly and over the top on cuteness the better. Usually, they are so pleased that you look like them that they forget all about the belly kisses. However, it does have the "Loser" effect among the Alpha dogs in the neighborhood.
2.) The moment the human goes in for the belly kissing, start licking either the inside of the human's ear or your butt. Both are a quick turn offs to the humans. However, this may result in getting your teeth cleaned or your butt squeezed cause you know humans are slow to learn new behaviors.
3.) Last resort, pee in her face. I haven't personally done this and I suspect it would lead to a major time out. However, I have heard that the human pups (also known as babies) do it and it works big time.
I do hope these suggestions help.
