Tell-Tail Signs

Heres the Animal Welfare Bill in its entirety


 - as entire as all those beautiful, expressive  tails are going to have to be in the future.  Unless I am reading it wrong, it also includes the cruel ugly spectacle that is Crufts and other dog "showing" horrorfests. They are going to have to rethink their breed standards and have dogs who can communicate. And what will those dogs say? Will it be "I love it here me?"

When Little Abe was a pup, the vet said she had a heavy tail for her size and in the future there may be a case for Medical Docking . Shiver! Apart from the damage to various crockery, tumblers,spillages of beer and assorted paperwork, Abes tail remains a glorious wagging semaphore of her mood. Little Abe still chases her tail when her dinner is served (aka The Mungry Dance)

kAt0's tail is a Las Vegas plume of joyous exhilaration and occaisionally a tense warning of nervousness that doesn't show on her face. kAt0's tail is a diary of where she has been, with leaves, mud and foliage. When kAt0 spies a fit boy dog, her tail is lifted in a sassy (tho embaressing) display of tartyness. Java's tail is a relaxed wag of contentment, but also can be a sharp, machine like wag of fear and impending attack. When Java is cold she snuggles into a Winter Ball of Dog , with her tail accross her snooter - this means turn the heating up. 

Yes, I think some of Abe and Kato's filthy looks at Penny have been because she doesn't do regular dog speak.....

and elbowing to the front of the biscuit queue probably doesn't help either.

Do dogs have elbows?
