Sometimes it isn’t easy being a dog. Sebastian, the Newfoundland, is just not in the mood for tricks today. His Mom asks him to sit and lie down and roll over … it’s all just too much work for this big boy! Sebastian doesn’t sit back idly at this injustice, though. He makes sure his Mom realizes his frustrations and doesn’t hesitate to complain the whole time he does these annoying chores. If you listen really closely to Sebastian’s grumbling, you can almost make out “I don’t want to…”

We’re guessing that a magical treat is what is actually convincing Sebastian to complete this short sequence of tricks. He seems like the kind of dog that wouldn’t do them if there wasn’t some sort of delicious incentive. We can compare the allure of the treat to how we convince human children to do their chores … allowance! We sure hope Sebastian doesn’t complain every time he has to do a trick, though, just occasionally when he isn’t feeling it!
