‘What the Fluff’ challenge makes us all magicians in the eyes of our dogs
Dogs are cute. Magic is fun.

The person then performs the classic disappearing trick, where they drop the blanket and poof! They’re gone.
It’s the What The Fluff challenge.
Now, we can see the person scampering out the doorway and into another room as the blanket falls.
The dogs, who haven’t experienced magic, are confounded by the illusion.
