God told Stephen that he needed to get one of these new 4K TVs.
How did Stephen know it was God?
Stephen was in Costco while I waited in the truck, saw one, thought it was awesome. Just then, a gentleman stopped, in Costco, said I just bought one, really researched it and spouted specs, why you should get this one, avoid that one.
Stephen came back to the truck all excited and told me about it.
I listened, dogs are good listeners. OK OK Stephen, but how do you know God wanted you to buy one?
Ah, good question Yogi. When, I got home, wanted to watch a movie, put it in and my TV went snap, crackle, pop, spark, spark. I let it rest and it worked again, but this close to the beach, it will go up in smoke soon.
Alllllright, maybe I will spot you that God wants you to have a 4k TV, but what does that have to do with me?
Sure enough, Stephen came home with a TV and they unpacked it. Other than playing with the wrapping material I have never understood why humans sit in front of those glass boxes, I know they make noise, but ........
I could never see the TV. I know other puppies would watch TV, not me. It looks like abstract art in the Neo-Plasticism style.
But we got the 4K TV, Stephen put in 5 Below Zero, because, who cares, Yogi doesn’t watch TV… well I do now. There are sled dogs inside of Stephen's new TV and they run right into the edge and disappear.
Every time the dogs show up, which is often in that movie, I would jump paws up to the table holding the TV and bark at the strange dogs. They are like ghosts, have no smell, but they are definitely dogs.
Stephen felt this was not good. For a number of reasons: claw scratches on his teak table, afraid I would knock over his screen, and he felt it was bad form . . .
The movie turned out to be the most intense dog/person training session ever, For the entire movie Stephen and Kathy used treats, just commands, even physically controlling me by my collar, what's up with that? They took turns, not good cop bad cop exactly, but I recognized the handoff training style.
Other dogs ask me are you “trained”?
Heck no, they still have treats left. One movie was not enough, I will let you know when I talk Stephen into sharing his bowl of popcorn.
