Tips for Business Success

If public speaking makes you nervous, leading experts recommend this method to counter stage fright. Simply imagine your audience is all dogs, and then you will speak more confidently, saying things like “Who increased exports to Latin America twelve percent over the last fiscal year? Was it the spare parts division? Was it the sparey-warey partsy-wartsy-poo division? Yes it was! Yes… it… was!”

(Is that guy on drugs or something?)

    How the heck did they get all these dogs to look the same direction at the same time!?!?!?!

    • Dana April 18, 2017 / 3:29 pm

      They just watched Mike’s kitten-herding video and decided they didn’t want to look like “those guys”.

      I assume the photographer set up the camera with a remote or something, stood behind it, and squeezed squeaky toys and did funny voices while taking pictures literally constantly. Then they picked out the one photo where all the dogs were paying attention at once. This is pretty much the standard approach for photographing animals. Or children. Or family gatherings.

        Ha Ha Ha… “family gatherings”!!!

      Bacon and or cheese. Say Cheese. Say Bacon!

    Mike, you gave away my professional secret!

    • Faye April 18, 2017 / 6:33 pm

      Ricky’s Mom, I thought of you right away!

      • Ricky's Mom April 18, 2017 / 6:57 pm

        Ricky is thinking of suing. 🙂

        • Faye April 18, 2017 / 7:23 pm

          Get a good Pawyer!

            We might have to hire a cattorney.

    I do not imagine the people I talk to as doggies, not sure real dogs would take that as a praise.
    I think it works the other way round. I start talking clearly, emphasizing all the important points and the young guys just hear “woof” “woof” woof”
    Young girls hear “meow, meow , hisssss”
    Elderly guys that fancy this type of monsters hear “puuuurrrrrrr””puuuuuurrrr”, they even imagine as I slowly lick my paws.

    Conclusion: it is more practical to write e-mails and then they can read into it whatever they want….. 🙂

      Totally misread that second last sentence.
      “Elderly guys that fancy this type of monsters hear “puuuuurrrrrrr””puuuuuurrrr”, they even imagine as THEY slowly lick my paws.”

      • Emsthemonster April 18, 2017 / 3:09 pm

        haha even better that way 🙂

    Of course the one you don’t see that is leading the meeting and that all the dogs are looking up has to be a cat 😺

    • Laura April 18, 2017 / 4:52 pm

      Well, every cat that I know who lives with a dog is the boss, so you make perfect sense there, Gigi! Our torty took one look at the golden retriever we adopted many years ago and said, “You WILL obey me!” And the golden just smiled and wagged her tail. Which the cat then chased and batted at.

      I wish I had video of them doing that….

      • Faye April 18, 2017 / 6:38 pm

        Then Millie is exceptional. She commands our cat whose food water and cat box are only accessible by braving Millie.

        The cat does not know she has talons and that Millie can do nothing else than bark at her. Cat’s problem to solve.

        • Gigi the cat lady April 18, 2017 / 9:00 pm

          Chihuahua are an exception to EVERY rule 😉

    I wonder if they are all sitting in their respective owners’ seats.

  8. The Iglets April 18, 2017 / 4:01 pm

    OMG so freakin’ funny!!

  9. Rhea April 18, 2017 / 5:22 pm

    Looks like Trump’s Committee on Feline Affairs.

    • Faye April 18, 2017 / 6:39 pm

      “Keep your paws off my, umm, Kitties.”

      • debg April 19, 2017 / 12:30 am

        Dang, Faye! I’m going to be laughing all night about that one!

      • Duckie 🐥 April 19, 2017 / 6:25 pm

        Have you ever heard what saying “roflsnort” in a mug of tea sounds like?

        • Faye April 19, 2017 / 9:21 pm

          I can imagine it Duckie. I cracked myself up with that one. 🐈
