You have to see this to believe it. This dog unlocked his crate and four doors in the middle of the night to escape his veterinarian's office:

"Yeah, it definitely tastes fresh."

"It's good, The structure is good. Yes. Not too sticky."

"Yes, it's tasty."

"It's nice and firm, has good bite."

"[I]f it were wine, I'd say it's fine."

While it might be easy to write these folks off as naive, NPR reported, "Research has found that when you tell people that what they are eating or drinking is a high-end product, they won't just say that it tastes better than a cheaper product — their brains will actually experience it as better."
