The first is that pet will give them unconditional love. And the second is that it will inevitably cause some mischief as it grows up.

As dogs mature, they learn what their owner likes and dislikes. For most families, causing mayhem and destruction is a bad thing…and the four-legged family members quickly learn that.

When a dog named Ettore was a little bit naughty, his dad had to sit him down and give him a stern talking-to. Once the pup realized he was in hot water, he was overwhelmed with guilt…and reacted in the most adorable way.

He tried to charm his way out of trouble by, at first, gazing into his dad’s eyes. When that didn’t work, he began to crawl his way slowly up his body…

When the heartfelt plea for forgiveness didn’t work right away, Ettore knew he needed to step it up a notch.
