Dogs are clever.

Take this young lab named Shasta, for example. Her mama was ‘vacuuming’ (ahem, or was she?) with her robotic housemaid, Roomba. Clearly, Shasta was not in agreement with the need for the work, nor the worker robot itself. Shasta made attempt after attempt to block Roomba, with Mummy gently chiding her for being such a micromanager.

So what’s a dog to do if Mummy isn’t going to stop the ridiculous noisemaker that kept barging into her legs? Why turn it off herself.

Which is exactly what she did, several times. My favorite? The very end, where she looks at the camera like, “What part of I want this flipping thing off are you not understanding, Mummy????”

Oh yeah…dogs just let us think we’re smarter. But they know the deal!
