BASKERVILLE – Through a combination of nonverbal signals, local whippet Devo has secured the indefinite extension of a belly rubbing session.
Devo’s caretaker Kelly Moire correctly interpreted the various cues as both affirmation of the prior belly rub and entreaty for more.
“I thought for a minute there that he might be done, but that doesn’t look like the case,” said Moire. “Come to think of it, Devo has never passed up a belly rub.”
Devo’s long term plans include conveyance of his desire for further belly rubs and bacon.
