Making him into a tuffy. Teaching him Bo Pelini faces!
Which is something Otis most def excels at.
And why are we fired up and ready to go??? REVENGE!
Oh yes, last year the Texas Lamehorns STOLE the Big XII Championship from the Cornhuskers when they got a MIRACLE SECOND added to the clock. Grrrrrrr. But revenge will be ours today! However, Otis has been most troubled by something football related lately. One of his bestie gal pals is Mayzie. You can see how they have things in common like brindley stripes and a taste for the brewskis.
But then what is THIS??
Oh noes! She loves the Sooners and they are the traditional rivals of Otis's true love..THE HUSKERS! They are like the Montagues and Capulets! See how melancholy this makes Otis?
But then he remembered! There is still a deep bond between them. And that is HATRED OF THE LONGHORNS! Hooray! He can love Mayzie and the Cornhuskers!
And together they are on the side of good against the AXIS OF EEEEEVIL!
But it turns out that my legs are a dead giveaway for my TUFF GUY ORIGINS. My legs come from WOLVES. SCIENCE has declared it is so! Unlike my BO-RING sibbies who are regular ole dogs, I have a special wolf gene! Read about it here!
Here you see my wolfy side coming out as I hunt the wild hosta. Here's how science explains my untameability:
They found short-legged dogs all had a slightly altered extra gene that produces a growth protein called fibroblast growth factor 4 or FGF4. It appears to be copy of a wolf gene that got spliced back into the dog genome some time after modern dog breeds diverged from wolves.

You better not mess with me when the moon is full! Here you see my ferocious corgipants in all their floofy glory. Wait, what is this sentence starting the story?
Dachshunds and corgis have short stubby legs because they were dealt an unlucky ticket in the evolutionary lottery, scientists say.
