Just from browsing around, I see that poutiness must be a pretty common behavior. Wow...I just noticed it with Isabella. Last night I really started to try to train her to NOT mouth. Anytime a hand goes down, her mouth is all over it. Anyway, I guess I really peeved her and she was the biggest pouty-puss in the world! Then, this morning, she headed to a corner of the living room and in 2 seconds flat had pooped! She must have had a momentary lapse of reason, and my husband caught her in the act...she knew she messed up. He simply told her NO and put her outside. Bring on the pout. When she came in, I gave her breakfast and she just laid next to her food bowl, didn't eat, and looked up with her pitiful eyes. It took some coaxing, but she did finally spunk up and eat. What a little diva!
