Dog Uses Chopsticks (April Fools’ Video)

April Fools’ Day is known worldwide as a day of jokes, tricks, and humor. I’ve seen many youtube videos of the Golden Retriever Ginger dining, and I still laugh every time I watch them. A pretty heated discussion surfaced after I asked Care2 readers if dogs should be allowed to dine at restaurants. But, on April Fools’ Day, I wanted to provide some light, fun entertainment for you. I hope you laugh as much as I did when you watch “Wasabi and Ginger”. Enjoy and I hope your pets put a smile on your face on April Fools’ Day and everyday!

I love how well trained Ginger is.
If you have seen many of these videos and you have ever tried to train your dog's self restraint you know how big a challenge it is for that gorgeous Golden to *not* dive in to the bowls, mugs, plates of goodies right there in front of her.

She is well cared for and enjoys working so closely with her person.
