Talking Tuesday with Jakey

Professor Jakey here today talking to the Assistants out there about some basic translation commands we'll be covering over in the next few weeks!


Today, I'll be translating a basic Assistant Command.  Here it is in human:

Very direct and to the point....but not very original.






As you'll notice, our way to ask to be petted is much more poetic and eloquent:

Notice if your muzzle is placed at just the right angle your assistant won't even realize they have begun petting you...I believe I may talk to Bertie about doing a study on subliminal petting!


How do you let your assistants know you want to be petted??

Subliminal petting? Oh yes Jakey, that is most worthy of further in depth scientific research.
Toodle pip!

Phod will do the head thing. Hailey will use her paw to grab the person's arm and pull it to her stomach. Phod sometimes uses that move too.

Emma said...

We usually let our assistant work, except for Madison who sometimes gets her face right in the middle of things. Good tips!

Julie said...

Jake says pet me mama, but not in English like you... he uses his shoulder to shove my leg while I am here at the computer, or pushes hard on my lap with his head, if I am on the sofa, he walks up puts his face on chest and pushes really hard. of course he says pet me when he is sleeping, rolling on floor etc. Mama just pets when she sees it

Madi and Mom said...

OMCs we might be kit-zin Cuzzins once removed.
That is 100% the exact way I get mom to pet me.
HOWEVER, she claims I only do that when she is about to put a cup to her mouth and I make her dribble. NOT TRUE!!!
Hugs madi your bfff

Idaho PugRanch said...

OMD you can talk that PEEP Speak stuffs????? THAT is Astonishing.
We use the Nose under the hand thingy... coupled with really REALLy sad Looks...
YOU really have it ALL wrapped up. The Total Package. We need to study this and get much better at the Subliminal Petting stuffs. One can NEVER have enough petting and scritching. RIGHT???

You got it down to a real science!

Bella Roxy & Macdui said...

Rosy just sort of head butts the hand when she wants a pat!

♥♥ The OP Pack ♥♥ said...

Well, it seems we do like to be petted right when Mom has settled down on the sofa with her laptop on her lap. We aren't quite as gentle as you - we just push that laptop over and stick our heads on her lap instead:0
