The Guilt Stare

Many years ago, Nano mastered what I like to call the “guilt stare.”

I took him to get his nails trimmed a couple months ago. He was very good for the employee working on him. He did not fuss or jump around or try to get free. He sat very still and allowed them to work on his nails. But he stared directly at me the entire time as if to ask why I took him to Petco to hand him over be tortured.

It is the exact same look when Tera takes something from him or kicks him off his blanket or dog bed. He stares at me because he wants me to protect him or take back whatever it was he lost.

The “guilt stare” is totally adorable.
