[MUSIC PLAYING]
Hey, everybody, Welcome to the Flog.
Remember my dog Cubby?
Remember him?
Here's a refresher.
There he is again.
He's a beezy boo cute!
We're going to see lots of Cubby today
in this week's segment.
But first, Vaginal Fantasy, my genre romance book club, is
going to be moving to here, Geek & Sundry, starting
tomorrow as part of Hangouts at 8:00.
We're going to be broadcasting live, 8:00 PM Pacific, so log
into chat, submit questions, or just watch.
Men or women are invited, because who doesn't like to
read smutty parts?
Come on, he-he.
And on to Trio Mio.
Number one, sometimes YouTube comments make me cry.
I am a gamer!
It's just a fact.
But viewer Steven had a solution.
Herp Derp for YouTube is a Chrome plugin that changes all
comments on videos to herps and derps.
So what's that, stinkytrollbuttface69?
Well, herpty derp to you, my friend, too.
Hee hee!
Number two comes from my friend, Veronica Belmont.
Who hates airports?
I do.
But Pocket Planes, an iOS game, makes them
slightly more tolerable.
You run an airport, and you build up your airline by
planning out flight paths and passengers, and you can even
customize your own planes.
It's similar to Tiny Tower, but I think
slightly more addictive.
So next time I'm on a long flight delay, I'm going to
play this game and egomaniacally imagine how much
better I would run that [BLEEP].
Because playing a game is exactly like running an
airport, right?
And lastly is an awesome adventure swashbucklingly
steampunk comic called Lady Sabre and the--
Lady Sabre and the Pirates of the--
Lady Sabre and the Pirates of the Ineffable Aether.
Ather?
Is it--
Aether.
That was enough work doing that right there.
So just check it out.
It's awesome.
Hey, guess what this segment is?
It's Cubby.
Such a pretty Cubby.
Like a boochy, poochy, boochy Cubby, Cubby, Cubster.

I'm here at the Westwood Park in Los Angeles, and I'm going
to train my dog how to do tricks, right, Cubby?
Cubby?
Cubby, look at me.
I'm here with Caryl, who is the owner of Doggie Manners.
CARYL WOLFF: Well, we're a dog training company, and we teach
obedience and manners, tricks and agility.
It's fun stuff.
FELICIA DAY: And how did you get into that?
CARYL WOLFF: I belonged to a dog club.
Somebody wanted a dog for Annie, and so we got my dog.
FELICIA DAY: That's your dog?
You got it made into--
CARYL WOLFF: That's my dog Chadwick.
The prop master at the Music Center wanted me to get a dog
for the opera of Placido Domingo.
FELICIA DAY: So you became a dog agent.
This is my dog, Cubby.
So, Cubby, sit, sit.
Cubby is an old dog.
We put his business tie on because he's a
business dog today.
We got him at the pound.
He was the sad one who came up to the cage and put his little
paw in the-- he's got a good get-out-of-jail kind of face.
He doesn't do much.
[DOG SNEEZES.]
CARYL WOLFF: Oh, he sneezes.
FELICIA DAY: Sorry.
Cubby, sit.
Cubby, sit.
He does sit.
Look at that.
Sit.
Cubby, sit, sit.
There we go.
It's a cold pavement.
CARYL WOLFF: This is his greatest--
FELICIA DAY: This is his greatest moment.
All right, well, Cubby, let's go learn some more tricks.
Let's go.
CARYL WOLFF: The first thing we're going to do is have him
walk through the ladder.
FELICIA DAY: I have a pocket of treats.
CARYL WOLFF: Put a treat on his nose, but down here.
[MUSIC PLAYING]
CARYL WOLFF: So we're going to do basically the same thing,
but this is different.
It's a height change, and there's also a surface change.
FELICIA DAY: Uh-oh.
Take a treat?
Here, wait.
I got to fix your business tie.
There we go.
[MUSIC PLAYING]
FELICIA DAY: OK.
So what you're going to do with this is you are going to
walk through this together, then turn
around and walk back.
[MUSIC PLAYING]
FELICIA DAY: Do I get a treat?
Does anybody have a cappuccino?

SLOW MOTION MALE VOICE: Fail!
Oh no, fail!
Fail!
FELICIA DAY: Sometimes he doesn't think--
I'm like, don't go that way around the tree, and he does,
and then I try to fix it.
CARYL WOLFF: This is mental exercise.
FELICIA DAY: I know.
This is like Sudoku for him.
CARYL WOLFF: There you go.
We're going to make it a little bit narrower, OK?
We're going to have you right here.
You're going to call him through.
FELICIA DAY: Cubby, are you ready for this?
[MUSIC PLAYING]
FELICIA DAY: Right?
CARYL WOLFF: Perfect.
FELICIA DAY: Right?
CARYL WOLFF: Perfect.
FELICIA DAY: If you had a gold star, you'd give it to him.
CARYL WOLFF: Absolutely.
FELICIA DAY: Like mother, like dog.
What do you think he is?
CARYL WOLFF: He could be a German Shepherd and an
Australian Shepherd.
FELICIA DAY: Do you think he's Australian Shepherd?
CARYL WOLFF: Could be.
FELICIA DAY: Little known fact, he appeared
cameoed in The Guild.
He actually has an IMDB credit.
How long do you think Cubby would be for the weave?
CARYL WOLFF: I think he could do it in
another couple of hours.
FELICIA DAY: Genius dog.
CARYL WOLFF: What we're going to do is just
go over and go back.
FELICIA DAY: OK.
Ready?
OK.
[MUSIC PLAYING]
FELICIA DAY: Is he going to leap like a gazelle now?
CARYL WOLFF: Let's hope.
FELICIA DAY: Hey, when he crunches his treat, I can hear
his head crunch.
Like his whole skull just goes [CRUNCH].
CARYL WOLFF: You're going to put the treat over here and
guide him through and back.
FELICIA DAY: You see that?
OK.
See that?
[MUSIC PLAYING]
FELICIA DAY: He's a savant, Caryl.
Should I go through for him?
CARYL WOLFF: No, you don't have to go through.
FELICIA DAY: I should set an example.
CARYL WOLFF: OK.
CARYL WOLFF: Cubby, watch.
[MUSIC PLAYING]
FELICIA DAY: This is easy.
See, I feel like he needed that.
CARYL WOLFF: OK.
[TRIUMPHANT MUSIC]
FELICIA DAY: He went from I don't know what's going on,
Caryl, to give me that treat.
So at the end of the day, dogs will do whatever
they need to get some.
CARYL WOLFF: Right, to get a reward.
FELICIA DAY: Well, I'm surprised.
I think that Cubby has definitely grown during this.
I'm really appreciative of you being patient with him, even
though he's kind of a savant.
CARYL WOLFF: Now you're going to have to stimulate him
mentally every single day.
FELICIA DAY: Cubby, are you ready?
Do you know how to play with the Kinect, Cubby?
Well, thank you very much, Caryl, and people could find
your website?
CARYL WOLFF: It's www.doggiemanners.com.
FELICIA DAY: OK.
Very cool.
Thank you.
CARYL WOLFF: Thank you.
And you were terrific in this.
FELICIA DAY: I was good, right?
CARYL WOLFF: Yeah, you were a good student.
FELICIA DAY: Yeah.
Well, you know.
Bye.
[MUSIC PLAYING]
FELICIA DAY: Our question of this week comes from Mikey,
who asks, "Would you rather be attacked by a horse-sized duck
or 50 duck-sized horses?" Oh boy.
Dear Mikey, I would rather be attacked by 50 duck-sized
horses while riding one horse-sized duck, because the
idea of riding a duck quacks me up a bit.
Eh?
Ha ha!
ANONYMOUS VOICES: Boo, boo!
FELICIA DAY: Hey!
Hey, shut up!
ANONYMOUS VOICES: Boo!
Boo!
FELICIA DAY: Herpy derp, Felicia Day.
OK.
Oh, and a big shout out to Guild Wars 2.
The release is tomorrow.
I play one of the main characters, Zojja.
So if you play in a [INAUDIBLE], please leave a
comment below about how you like playing with me.
Not in a skeevy way.
Slightly skeevy is fine.
OK, see you next week, some of you at Dragoncon with the
whole Guild.
Bye!
Hooah!
