Bratty Protest Howling.

This is my dog reacting as I order her to leave the room so I can have dinner in peace. Note the expression of consternation, the stiff-legged "tails-up" stance: she is not leaving without a fight.

This was a daily routine for awhile, then suddenly she figured it out: Plan B. If she lies quietly on the floor, with some distance between us, I won't notice she's there. No doubt she feels like she's really putting one over on me, but essentially, we're both getting what we want.
