Pavlov never predicted this

November 1, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

So I came downstairs from the office and the kids were playing with the dog.

My daughter has a bad habit of showing a treat to the dog before giving a command. Consequently, the dog will do anything for her — just as long as she’s holding a treat.

She held out the treat and gave the dog a series of progressively more ridiculous commands. Sit. Lie down. Sit. Shake a paw. Lie down. Roll over. Play dead.

Still no treat.

The dog turned to me with a look in its eyes that was almost human. A look of supplication.

And I knew exactly what the dog was thinking: “What the fuck is this? Canada Reads?”
