Seeing your pup longingly look up at you from inside the open jaws of an alligator ain't cute lady. It's sick. Even your dog thinks this gag is inappropriate. That's why he's pawing at you to take the damn thing off already. He would have at least preferred something less bullky. An obnoxious Hello Kitty headpiece maybe? Or a few faux spider legs? But the current getup is killing his game — swallowed alligator bait ain't exactly the stuff players are made of.
