You can make a face, hide the lens, or, if you’re a dog named Sparky, simply melt to avoid taking a shot.
When the rescue dog has had enough of posing for the camera, he becomes boneless. It’s a highly effective strategy that also is rather bizarre to observe.
Sparky’s dad, Kennedy Simmons, told The Dodo, “When I shoot photographs with him, he has a certain tolerance, and once he’s reached that tolerance, he simply flops himself down — it’s almost like he’s throwing a tantrum.” “He goes limp, and every now and again, he’ll give me the meanest look, as if to say, ‘Are we done yet?’”
Simmons works as a veterinary surgeon assistant and also is known for bringing in unusual animals.
Simmons told The Dodo, “They were a great family, but he had to have surgery, and they were so frightened to let him do anything after he fractured his leg.” “They seriously desire him to have a happy puppyhood with someone who wouldn’t be afraid to let him do whatever he wanted.”
Sparky has refused to let the loss of a limb slow him down since the operation where he had to have his leg amputated.
“He’s been wild since day one,” Simmons said. “If you don’t have eyes on Sparky, he’s getting into something. If he’s out of your sight, he’s either snatching a piece of food from the table or grabbing a sock out of the hamper.”
And though Sparky’s only 11 pounds, when it comes to other dogs, he’s fearless. “He’s friends with the little dogs, he’s friends with the giant dogs,” Simmons said. “He’s so obnoxious with other dogs — he bites their tails and ears. But every dog ends up loving him and is just so tolerant of him. He’s never been told ‘no’ by any dog.”
The one thing Sparky despises is sitting still for a photo shoot, which results in Simmons’ phone being flooded by funny photos.
Even if he can’t picture Sparky’s affection, Simmons is there no one he’d prefer come home to after a long day.
“I’ve had numerous different special-needs dogs, and he’s got something truly unique. When you go home, he’s like such a little beam of light “According to Simmons. “His name is perfect because he has a glint in his eye and provides so much excitement to everyone because he isn’t a typical guy.
