My dog would try to lick the barrel. (Not too bright that one.)That was a Cheitec 406 intervention system if you are talking about the movie Shooter. one of us should have been a consultant the dog would have run like hell.
When he was a pup, he didn't have any problems spotting (the carpet) for me.
But now that he's older, he's a total bad-ass and you'd better not screw with him.
Or at least he thinks he is. (We don't have the heart to tell him any different.)
