Rabid Redskins Fan Taught Her Dog to Hate Cowboys

Gabe ZaldivarPop Culture Lead WriterDecember 22, 2016

Let your dogs eat their treats without having to offer up some adorable and feigned disinterest with your bitter rival. 

The damn dog is just hungry. 

Welcome to the sports world, where opinions are loud and absolute, and the animals apparently care as much as the humans. 

A tip of the hat to SportsGrid for spotting the plight of one pooch, who really just wanted a delicious treat but has been brainwashed to lose his appetite the second the Dallas Cowboys are mentioned, not unlike me actually. 

The woman, a huge Redskins fan, named her dog Dexter, after former Washington standout and banned NFL player Dexter Manley. 

The lady loves her Redskins so much that she trained her dog to hate the word "Cowboys," causing the animal to ignore a tasty treat. 

Now, I am not dog trainer, but I know these canines are not downloaded with these kinds of crazy apps when you get them (at least not yet). 

It must have taken her hours to get the dog to realize Cowboys was a bad word. 

I am no PETA honk, just a fat guy who gets annoyed when food is kept from him over a dumb trick, so I empathize with this dog's problem. 

Please, just give him the treat. 

Hit me up on Twitter for more insanity. 

Where can I comment?
