Lulu’s Playtime Tips, Part 3: Play Bows

Hello friendlies! Lulu here with part three of my playtime tips, featuring my assistant, Penny! This week we’re demonstrating play bows, which are an important part of any playtime. Basically, a play bow is a way to make sure your playtime partner knows you’re just playing. They can also make you look a little smaller so that you’re not so, you know, intimidating, if you’re a big dog like me. Check it out below!

Charlee: “A big dog like you? You’re not that big of a dog, Lulu. At least, not once you get past all of your furs. Dennis had a good ten pounds on you, if not more.”
Lulu: “Be that as it may, bigness is relative. I may be smaller than Dennis, but I’m bigger than Penny. And also bigger than you.”
Chaplin: “With all that bowing to your partner, are you sure this isn’t an installment of ‘Lulu’s Square Dancing Tips’?”
Lulu: “Hmmm …”
Lulu: “Well, sure, if you set it to that kind of music, it might look like we’re square dancing.”
Chaplin: “Yeee-haw.”

So remember, friendlies—playtime communication is important. You can bow to your partner, you can bow to your corner, and then you can promenade around the square. Or up onto the sofa. Or out into the yard. It’s all up to you. This is Lulu, rolling over and out!
