Animals Acting Badly

Barbara: I was looking around for something fun to post today and my daughter showed me the following hamster video. This little guy's acting skills are unbelievable. 





Not to be outdone, my dog Chaplin tried the same trick. You can see his lack of commitment when he very subtly sniffs the floor after he's "dead".

    1. Another adorable one, Shalaka! Yeah, Chaplin's acting skills have much to be desired. Maybe we should make him take one of those "method" classes...

  5. The hamster definitely was more committed to the acting than your dog; however, both are adorable! Thank you so much for sharing these.

    1. And random question for Barb, but is your dog named after Charlie Chaplin? Just curious. :)

      Delete
    2. Such cute videos! And, yes, Holly, Chaplin is for Charlie Chaplin. But he sure didn't take after the Master in the acting department...

  11. This was great thanks for the laugh. I have trained horses and dogs, gave up on the cats. But how the heck do you train a hamster to be a dramatic actor?

  12. So cute both the hamster and Chaplin! Our dogs version of play dead is to flop down for point five of a second then scramble up looking at you for approval with his big sappy grin.

  13. Awww, that hamster is awesome! :D

    And don't worry about Chaplin...he did a good job. =) The tongue licking creates more intensity. :P

    I proudly present my bunnies. =)
    I taught them some tricks, but I want to teach them more. And we haven't practiced for a long time...so they hesitate a little bit. I saw some vids, where the bunny lies down...but I don't know how to do that.^^

    1. I love your bunnies, Becki!!! So cute! So smart!!! Sweet, curious bunbuns!!!

      Awwww, your light brown bunbun reminds me of my late Geraldine. She was a New Zealand red. She was a rescue bunny from the House Rabbit Society (<- please support this wonderful organization). I got her for my 30th birthday, drove all the way up to St. Louis to get her. She died a few years later after never recovering from having been in a room when the entire ceiling caved in over her cage (first house Eddie and I lived in when my marriage ended, also the house where raw sewage bubbled up into the bathtub one weekend, and also where the water pipes froze for days at a time each winter *sigh*).

      When I get resettled in 2 or 3 years as an emptynester, whether I'm on land or on a houseboat, I'm seriously considering raising a few angoras. They are awesome because they are supercute and clever bundles of bunbun love and fabulous fluff generators for crafty fiber arts fiends. :) Plus, I just love the idea of ending each day with soothing bunny brushing time. Cuddly combing. Focused attention on supercuteness.

      Of course, I've long wished for a pet Flemish Giant! They are so awesome!

    2. Love the bunnies Becki thank you for sharing!

    3. Thanks, Becki. I loved your line about Chaplin's licking creating more intensity!!!! Made my day.

      I can't get over how talented (and adorable) your bunnies are. I never thought of bunnies (or hamsters, for that matter) as trick-doers, but look at these talents.

    4. Aww! So cute. They second one going to check the camera! It was like, "make sure you get this." ;)

    5. Thank you for your nice comments! =)

      The small bunny (that's Lucky - the chef) is from an animal shelter, too. I'm glad I could give him a better life.

      Rabbits are such interesting animals, if you don't lock them up in tiny cages or carry them around the whole day.

      I love to cuddle with my bunnies (Julie - the bigger one - always wants to be petted...so I sit or lie next to her and pet her for hours. ;).

      And my bunnies do those tricks because they get some treats, and they do love them so much. ;)

      Julie is very curious and explores everything.^^

  14. It looked to me like Chaplin was looking (licking) for his last meal. Now that's commitment!
