Sophie is a black dog who follows orders. Unless those orders go against the house rules. Then Sophie faces a conundrum.
A video on Rumble uploaded by NCBuckeye shows how the dog struggles with an obedience logic puzzle as she stands on one side of a screen door without the screen while her owner calls her. There is a real struggle behind Sophie’s wags.
“C’mon Sophie! C’mon in,” a voice beckons off-screen. Sophie stays put. When the owner pets her through the door Sophie understands something’s different but still won’t break the rules.
“Oh come on… I’ve got a treat for you. Wanna cookie?” How could she refuse? Of course she shows interest.
“You do want a cookie? Well come inside!”
Right at the point where this almost seems like torture for the obedient dog, Sophie gives in and crosses the threshold. We applaud this dog’s devotion.
