That wasn’t funny, it was cruel, and now I’m sorry I watched it. Cheating a dog of a treat with sleight of hand is taking advantage of and laughting at another creature’s mental limitations. That’s wrong when the other creature is a mentally disabled person, and it’s just as wrong when it’s a dog.

Well thank goodness somebody came to say it’s not funny. You know what’s even not funnier? The old vanishing stick trick. Gets 'em every time!


#4

So where did the treats actually go? Up the sleeve?

I’m not feeling much smarter than the dogs right now.


#5

Really? Really? How do you feel about taunting kittens with string?


#6

While that’s a bit extreme, I do hope the doggies got the treat in the end anyway…


#7

I play tricks on my dogs all the time. And when the trick is over, they still get the treat and they wag their tails. That’s how I know they’re cool with it.


#8

According to a comment on the youtube page, they did get the treat in the end. I’m ok with this now.


#9

What’s curious to me is that the dog isn’t able to trace the scent of the hidden treat. Trompe l’nez magic?


#10

Me either. woof.


#11

You should see his levitating wiener.


#12

But how do they tell you the number they thought of?


#13

If that was your best example, you haven’t really thought this through very well.


#14

Functionally, how is it any different?
