Even the dog doesn’t come when I first call him. Look at this picture. Now, imagine the dog watching me opening this in the kitchen, 10 feet away from him. What sentient canine being that’s not in an actual coma would not immediately come when called, when he hears and sees this being opened?
Buddy The Wonder Dog, that’s who. I call him. He looks at me. I call him again. He looks at me. I yell at him. He comes. And only then does he graciously agree to be fed. Very much like my children. What am I doing wrong here?
