Life lessons, in puppeh form

1. Diplomacy doesn't work (when it comes to sharing bones.)

2. When in doubt, whine incessantly!

Works for me, Marissa H.

Aw. Give the lil guy a bone of his own!

 |  Sep 15, 2007 at 05:14 PM

I spent hours one day watching these 2 on youtube, they are so cute!

 |  Sep 15, 2007 at 05:20 PM

Awww, help the 'lil teeny get his bone back :-(

Too cute!

 |  Sep 15, 2007 at 05:21 PM

Works for Condoleeeeeeeeza, too, or it seems to.

Hey, I hate to state the obvious, but I see some nadage there. Just sayin'.

 |  Sep 15, 2007 at 05:22 PM

Oh poor Pablo!!! Poor puppy.... SOB

 |  Sep 15, 2007 at 05:22 PM

hehe. I like how he seems to understand what his human is saying. When he keeps motioning up, I just sort of imagine his little whine as saying "But he's just so biiiig!"

 |  Sep 15, 2007 at 05:24 PM

What an a-hole, chuckling to himself...give the smaller dog a bone!

 |  Sep 15, 2007 at 05:24 PM

That puppeh needs some serious neutering.

Why does everyone feel bad for the little guy? Don't you know the little ones rule the roost, and then play innocent and sweet when they don't get their way? :P

 |  Sep 15, 2007 at 05:37 PM

"But... but..."

What really cracked me up was comparing poor, sad Pablo to the tv in the background with the oh-so-cheery commercial jingle "everything tastes better with a dollop of Daisy"

I love the expression on the big dog's face right when he says "Get your bone, Pablo." Big Dog is all like "I don't think so."

 |  Sep 15, 2007 at 05:42 PM

Daddy! You're supposed to help with this situations, not tell your younger boy to get beaten up!

 |  Sep 15, 2007 at 05:53 PM

Awwww hehe... "I dare ya"

Cute or sad indeed!

 |  Sep 15, 2007 at 05:55 PM

Well, after watching thosee clip where they're sleeping all over each other and the little one is licking the other one, I think the owner is right.

If Pablo REALLY wanted that bone...

 |  Sep 15, 2007 at 06:04 PM

Give him his own bone!!!!!

Poor lil guy. I wouldn't have grabbed that bone either.

 |  Sep 15, 2007 at 06:16 PM

I'd never be able to resist that whimper. I'd be all picking him up and snuggling him with a big kiss and giving him a milkbone to make him feel better.

Yeah, I'm a total dog slave.

 |  Sep 15, 2007 at 06:42 PM

but i want you to get it back i don't want my freind mad at me geezze human

leah b.
 |  Sep 15, 2007 at 06:43 PM

OH, GOD! This KEELED me. Ded! My little doxie always uses the "one paw up" routine when he wants us to do something! I would be putty, PUTTY, I tell you, in Pablo's hands! And DADDY! What's wrong with you! Get Pablo his bone!

 |  Sep 15, 2007 at 06:44 PM

Poor Pabs. This video is above and beyond cuteoverload. It's enticingly wicked. I thought Pablo might get bitten... And the way he sits up and just whines melts my little cotton heart (yes, it's cotton)!

yep dis is cuuuuute ^^

i wub da contrast between biggie dobie and widdle chichi

and the semi-indignant look on dobie's face when the man's telling pablo to go get 'his' bone--dobie's face is all, 'uhm excuse me i'm RIGHT HERE; i CAN hear you yanno'

 |  Sep 15, 2007 at 07:03 PM

Dang, Pablo! I feel your pain! Daddy, you should be ASHAMED of yourself! [warning growl!]

 |  Sep 15, 2007 at 07:10 PM

Heh, I thought Doberman would get angry and growl at the little guy. :)

 |  Sep 15, 2007 at 07:16 PM

LOL dude that's hilarious. his little face is like "do you think I'm effing crazy?"

 |  Sep 15, 2007 at 07:29 PM

Isn't "put your paw up" the #1 Rule of Cuteness?

Paw and other things up.

 |  Sep 15, 2007 at 07:43 PM

Seriously, no more Videos!!

 |  Sep 15, 2007 at 07:48 PM

why is everyone poor pablo and calling his owner mean. So what if its a little dog whinning for his bone from the big dog. Just because he is a dobi doesnt mean hes a big mean dog that is going to attack the little chi, and little dogs like that are angels when you are around and brats when you are not, he prob picks on dobi when daddy isnt there. The dobi so cute tho!

 |  Sep 15, 2007 at 07:53 PM

After watching all forty videos of Pablo and Ramsey on youtube I have to say the owner is not a bad person. Sure he's tauting the lil'guy in this video, but they are just playing. That Doberman is so in love with the chihuahua , it's amazing to see. You guys gotta check the other videos, they sleep together and Pablo even wines when Ramsey in laying on the bed and he can't get up there.

Cutest thing ever!

 |  Sep 15, 2007 at 07:56 PM

awwwwwwwww cutie patoootieees. Two very sweet dogs =) I hold back the cat food for a few secs to hear my kitty meow. And I love her more than anything!!! I just think her meows are cute too.

 |  Sep 15, 2007 at 08:00 PM

I love these dogs! Don't worry about Pablo, he protects his treats fiercely from his master's friends.

 |  Sep 15, 2007 at 08:34 PM

Are we REALLY debating the cruely of this video? Seriously? It's come to this?

 |  Sep 15, 2007 at 08:42 PM

The dobie is just waiting for lil' bit to come get his bone. I think he was disappointed that Pablo didn't try harder.

 |  Sep 15, 2007 at 08:55 PM

I'm practically obsessed with Pablo and Ramsey. LOL They're so cute, and the videos on YouTube are so freakin' hilarious!! What an odd couple. They're the best!! Awww!! *kisses them* <3

 |  Sep 15, 2007 at 09:36 PM

Oh My God!!!
That big dog is in full Alpha mode. Which means this is not cute but dangerous to the little dog. The bigger dog is sending a clear message to the little dog.
I was watching the video and was scared to death for the little dog. When a dog is in full Alpha mode it means he BELIEVES he is the one in full control and will take any action necessary to guard his bone. This is Not Breed Specific. It happens will all breeds. My concern is the size of the little dog. The body language of the bigger dog is clear.
Some may think I'm over reacting. Please don't. Check with any Vet or check out dog training info. online about this. You can google dog info-alpha behavior.

 |  Sep 15, 2007 at 09:41 PM

Pablo and Ramseys are the best of friends. Ramsey's is the most gentle doberman. She is so sweet. Pablo is the one who causes all the trouble. And AuntieMame I think you're right, Ramseys was probably disappointed that Pablo didn't try harder.

 |  Sep 15, 2007 at 09:48 PM

I watch this guy's videos all the time, they're so funny

 |  Sep 15, 2007 at 09:49 PM

the little guy sounded like my cat!

 |  Sep 15, 2007 at 10:14 PM

LOL @ lurkertype's comment! I too noticed that the paw wasn't the only thing that was up.

 |  Sep 15, 2007 at 10:23 PM

DAD!!! Are you TRYING to get me killed!?!?! (lol - how about a bone for EACH K9?) cute stories.

 |  Sep 15, 2007 at 10:37 PM

I'm on the dobermann's side... :) Whimpering miniature dogs don't usually melt my stone heart anyway.
And since they are friends, I don't think the chihu was scarred for life.

I love it how the little one sat down yawning, trying to convince the dobbie that he wasn't actually even considering of getting the bone... :)

I also liked how the owner was talking to the chihuahua like it was a real dog, not a child or a toy. You don't hear that too often.

 |  Sep 15, 2007 at 10:39 PM

Holy crap, that is sooo sweet! A BIG AWWWWWWW from me!

 |  Sep 15, 2007 at 11:57 PM

Those two are so adorable! I wouldn't be able to resist Pablo either:


 |  Sep 16, 2007 at 12:37 AM

we have stumbled upon the mother load of cute, dear friends!! cwdressen's youtube account is full of manna from heaven!!!

 |  Sep 16, 2007 at 01:51 AM

Eeeee, the white eyebrows :)

The owner of the two dogs put this disclaimer next to the video:

"DISCLAIMER: My Doberman would NEVER hurt my Chihuahua. They do this to each other every time one of them has something the other wants. Usually my Chihuahua steals whatever my Doberman has. This time he didn't for whatever reason. Please do not comment telling me how mean I am or how my Doberman is going to eat my Chihuahua because she's not. Do you honestly think I would put either of my dogs in any danger?"

It's true. Pablo and Ramsey are the best of friends. The owner truly loves his dogs and he's very good to them. Please watch the other videos of these two if you haven't already.

I can't believe people think there's anything mean in these videos. Go watch all of their videos on You Tube - they are buddies. The doxie is clearly alpha but nobody is trying to take that away from him. He loves his little Pablo *tears up*

 |  Sep 16, 2007 at 03:55 AM

Well, in defense of the people who were concerned, if I hadn't already seen a bunch of videos of Pablo and Ramsey I might have freaked too.

But yeah, the owner is clearly a loving owner. My favorite is the one where Pablo is begging to get up on the bed with Ramsey, and the owner is trying to give Ramsey a break from Pablo, but eventually he can't resist and puts Pablos on the bed, apologizing to Ramsey.

awww, give the pups his bone. what a cute little puppy dawg. awwwww. cute cute cute

 |  Sep 16, 2007 at 04:45 AM

Hey everyone. Someone tipped me off to this site and told me that one of my videos was posted here so I had to check it out. I can understand how some people think this may be cruel or that Pablo is in danger, but I promise you I would never do that. Ramsey always allows Pablo to take whatever he wants. Occasionally she'll even growl, but if they end up in a tug-of-war match, Ramsey always gives in. The same thing would have happened here if Pablo would have actually persued the bone. Although I love my dogs equally, I sometimes find myself cheering for Ramsey just because Pablo DOES run the show. Anyway, thanks for all the nice comments. I'm glad you like my pooches!
