There are all kinds of cute tricks that we can teach to our pets, but for some reason we are always most amused when we can make them play dead.
When you think about it, this is pretty messed up. Most people consider pets to be part of the family, but if you train your toddler to play dead and then go grab your wife to show her his seemingly lifeless body on the floor… Aww, how cute! is not the response you are going to get.
Still, its really cute.
