There are things that we still do out of rote habit even though things may change. Sometimes I’ll subconsciously push up my reading glasses even if they aren’t physically present on my face, and I’m not reading. That’s nothing though – this video here shows a canine who has become so used to leaping over something that its absence doesn’t deter him.
We see a dog and his friend running back and forth from the kitchen into the living room. There’s been a big change in the house; a childproof gate has been removed. The baby must be big enough to know how to behave around the kitchen. Anyway, the dog, who looks like a husky mix of some sort, is completely oblivious to the change, jumping over the phantom fence as if it was still there.
This pooch must be so used to jumping over the gate that he doesn’t even think about it. If he was really paying attention, he’d be like ‘Why is this silly human running through the gate and I’m jumping? Wait a minute – there’s no gate. I’m such a silly dog!’ That doesn’t happen in this video, though I’m sure that the light bulb went off at some point in the next day or so.
This video below is simply adorable. I couldn’t get enough of watching this. There are some videos of dogs avoiding phantom items, but this is by far, my favorite. Have a watch in the video below and enjoy a good old fashioned giggle.
