These Poor Dogs Are Mystified & Terrified by the Disappearing-Treat Magic Trick
It can be hard to tell whether this video is just plain hilarious, or if it’s also a bit mean.
Here, a guy—we’re not prepared to call him a magician; this is pretty basic stuff—does the whole “You want a treat? Here it is … wait, where’d it go?” trick. Each dog, in his own individual way, has no clue what the heck just happened to the treat. They immediately look to the ground first (a sensible response), but then get completely overwhelmed by the conundrum. Some of them even run away, presumably in terror of the sorcerer who just made their treat VANISH.
As long as these dogs did eventually get a treat later on, we’re fine with it. Otherwise, shame on you, sir.
