Dennett has surely never seen the Iditerod dogsled races. When the dogs are getting hitched up their body language is screaming: cool! great! fun cool lets go wow fun cool great, ha! lets go lets go!

When a dog is retired from the traces to a life of ease as a pet, he droops like his heart is about to break.

Every year the SPCA people show up to protest the dogsled races, and every year they witness the dog's behavior and go away scratching their heads. {8^D spike
