Let’s just admit it, some of us are bad at taking compliments. Whether it’s from someone we know or a random stranger, we just struggle to take a friendly piece of encouragement. We can receive compliments about our clothes, looks, or skills, but for people who are excessively modest, they usually find a way to wriggle out of the kind words!
For one dog in a fresh bandana, he needed to learn!
Learning how to take a compliment is a skill all of its own. You need to learn how to accept it without being overly prideful and also reflect some of that kindness back on the person complimenting you. It is one of most socially nuanced things out there! For this little puppy, he was still learning.
This little puppy was sporting some new clothes that his owner got him.
Dogs usually look pretty good in bandanas! They often get them when coming back from the groomers and this little guy was wearing a red one across his neck and back. As a puppy, the bandana covered quite a bit of him but it was cute all the same! The red of the bandana stood brightly in contrast to the white fur underneath.
When his owner tried to compliment the pup, things got funny!
It looks like the puppy is a French Bulldog and is super cute. His owner starts filming him and tells him that he likes his new bandana. Pretty harmless, right? Wrong!
When the puppy hears that someone likes his bandana, he shows that he can’t take a compliment!
Right when the pup hears the compliment, he freezes in his tracks and stops licking the ear he was so intently worried about before. It’s almost as if he is daring his owner to repeat himself. When he does, the little white ball of fur ducks down behind his shoulder and starts his little growling noises!
Hiding from the camera and barking, this little guy must be a bit self-conscious.
Whoever heard of a self-conscious puppy! When his owner won’t stop complimenting him, he decides to take matters into his own… paws? Leaping forward into a frontal attack, the little pup gives a few warning barks, letting the world no that he will receive NO compliment today. His owner counters with:
“You look handsome”
Now that he has crossed the line, the little puppy attacks.
Jumping and shoving his face straight into the neck of his owner, the puppy knows that the battle is close to over. Who can resist his cuteness? Getting a good nip on the back of the neck and ears was all it took to stop his owner from complimenting him further.
After one final compliment, the puppy finally stops to think about it.
With a final “I still think you look handsome”, the puppy stops, as if considering it for the very first time. He seems to tilt his head back in thought. His owner gives no time for pauses as he once again says “You look super handsome”. That was the final straw. Giving a huff of agreement, the puppy concedes that he does, in fact, look dashing.
