Brandy the Poodle Likes to Smile

In Journal, Pets by Steve Sliwa

Brandy is our 7-year-old Poodle.  When she was a puppy, we discovered that all of her littermates learned how to smile from their mom.  She knew the command before she arrived home.  It can be scary since it might appear like she is growling.  We eventually converted it into a smile and sneeze so it doesn’t startle people.  One problem is that our other dog, Beckett, gets extremely jealous when everyone makes a big deal about her trick.

In this video, our pet sitter tries to get Brandy to smile.
