Dog encounters Google robodog, gets trash-talked

One little dog who encounters a robodog that's a lot bigger. The robot canine is Spot. It was created by Boston Dynamics, a company owned by Google, reports CNET.
You might remember Spot. He was going to go to war with the Marines, but was ultimately rejected for being too noisy.
As Spot prances around like a preening pony doing the dressage at the Olympics, the real dog barks and barks as if to say, "Get off my lawn."
The real dog isn't cowed. He chases Spot all over the parking lot. He stares it down.
Last week, Boston Dynamics posted video of a humanoid robot that got pushed down but kept getting up again. The humanoid wasn't to be denied.
What if the real dog in this video had jumped on Spot and wrestled it into complete submission?
What if our pets get used to robotic presences? In the end, they'll surely come to like them.
Why? Because it'll be the robots who are feeding them while we're -- what will we be doing?
