There are times when sucking up works and there are times when it fails spectacularly.

This is a conversation a man had with his roommate's dog about a very, very poor choice. "I'm not mad, just disappointed," writes CJ Hoffman. "This is our conversation an hour after I caught her chewing up her bed... I didn't yell or get angry we simply had a talk about it. A serious talk."

As you can see, the doggie tried to use tricks of adorableness to save her from being told on. It probably worked. That trick always works on whenever my dog does something bad. Who cares about some chewed up book or shoes when there is an adorable face batting eyelids at you and demanding pets and kisses?
