Playing dead is one of the most basic tricks a dog can add to its arsenal. It looks super easy, as all the dog has to do is lay down and the proud owner will often reward the pet with a treat. (Then again, I am not a dog, so how would I know how easy it is?)
This dog takes it to a whole new level. Not only will it play dead, but it will give an Oscar-worthy performance of the trick just for kicks. After seeing this trick being performed, the Academy may need to add a category for Best Pet.
The award for best on-screen death goes to…Sam, the most dramatic dog on the face of the planet! Come up here and get your reward, ya little scamp!
