Play dead

“I am too lazy to jump into the back of the car”

Tucker is 1 year old and uses the technique of playing dead whenever he doesn’t want to do something. Even though he can jump up into the low Prius, he refuses to do it voluntarily and prefers to place his front paws up and then have his rear paws lifted up. When I don’t cooperate he plays dead and poor poodle Scarlett has to wait impatiently while I try to move him from his passive protest position.”

This is so funny - only because you have found the amusement in it and didn't just get annoyed. :-) The personalities of pets can be charming and/or aggravating.
