Having owned and loved three Labrador retrievers over the last 30 years, I can attest to the behavior of the Lab on the following video:
First of all, Labs are eating machines. If given the opportunity, they will eat until they drop dead. Secondly, Labs have very highly developed senses of guilt. Mind you, they will still opt to go for the forbidden food, but they also will punish themselves for such outlawed behavior. Their master’s punishment is moot compared to the dog’s own self-punitive actions. Their honesty in admitting their crimes is clearly expressed by their body language, lack of eye contact and voluntary self-isolation. However sorry these dogs are for their renegade actions, I know, I just can tell, that they still feel their actions were still SO WORTH IT.
Ya’ gotta love these conniving and repentant love sponges!!!!
