That’s cute. So when the owner tells the dog treat is from Obama, he won’t eat it, not even after repeated offerings. The Lib responders were furious. No funny bone at all.
That reminds me of a few Halloweens back, the was a photo of a little blond toddler sitting in a grocery cart, when somebody shoved a Halloween Mask of Obama in front of the child, who promptly broke down in trembling, clench fisted tears of horror!

I think that photo is in wide circulation. Might have even seen it here several times

You can probably find it easily online for another good laff

Not to be a complete downer here. Notice the hand position. When it was from people she “liked” the palm was up.
when she mentioned a libtard it was palm down.

Yep, simple training of the hand position. All the dog hears is blah blah blah...

Good observation; I was just enjoying the video. I did not think to access the video objectively, critically.

Not to suggest the canine wouldn’t react to voice commands.

Contrary to that old Far Side cartoon, “blah blah blah GINGER! blah blah blah,” dogs do have a vocabulary of understood words independent of tone of voice, hand signals and the like. They’ll eventually even figure out the meaning of words spelled out to avoid bedlam if it’s something they love to do. R-I-D-E, G-O, O-U-T, it only works for so long before the meaning of the new set of sounds are connected, and bedlam ensues once again when overheard.

To any that I may have offended or irritated or taken the joy from I apologize, and I do realize that sometimes it is better to not understand how the Avatar does the magic. It is still great that they trained the dog that well, mine would never be able to do that .

I didn’t notice that, but of course I didn’t think the dog actually was trained to do what he did depending on the name mentioned. The lady could as easily have offered him a doggie treat he does not like as she’s mentioning some of the extreme leftists, and a treat he likes for the rest. It was just clean fun, and a cute way to tweak the libs, so it made my day anyway!

That little dog is going to get fat! But, at least she demonstrates wisdom.

Absolutely. I had a Golden Retriever who had quite a large vocabulary. We did have to spell in front of her to avoid bedlam. Eventually, she became deaf and we didn’t even know it because she taught herself to read body language. My neighbor pointed it out to me, so then we just built on that and used sign language. She lived until almost 16 years old.
