Default Overheard while in garden.

Children and dog having fun in garden.
Suddenly the dog got very stressed and a female voice, presumably a parent
said Jake don't pull poppys tail. Jake then said why not what is it for
then.
There was a pause as obviously she could not think of a reason for the tail
and she came back with, its not for pulling Jake.


I did not hear any more, but no doubt she went straight onto the Interweb to
look up what dogs tails are for.

Ah yes, of course, its obvious!
Actually, it is apparently used for signalling to other dogs about
intentions, but does that mean dogs with tiny tails have little to say?
