Television journalism started some time in the 1930s and it has taken them over 80 years to give us, the viewing public, what we need and want. What we really want is hard-hitting interviews with dogs. What we also want and need is for the news station to tell us that the dog they’re interviewing is in fact a dog, because sometimes we don’t know. The BBC finally gets it!
Well, they almost get it. They failed at not interviewing the dog. They interviewed the human instead. On the BBC this morning, they talked to animal psychologist Dr. Roger Mugford about how dog friends can read human facial expressions and that you should trust your dog’s judgement when choosing a piece. Who cares what Dr. Mugford has to say? He’s wrong about how you should consult your dog before getting with a piece. My dog is a slut (takes one to raise one, in this case) so he likes everyone and wants to be everyone’s friend. I want to hear from Bounce!
And as a human who can usually read a dog’s facial expression, it’s pretty obvious that Bounce is thinking, “You dragged me out of the house for this shit?”
