Dog Forgets Why He Went Into Room
NEW YORK - Bert, a neighborhood beagle, entered the kitchen with particular intentions, only to inexplicably forget what those intentions were, sources indicate.
“I saw him walk into the kitchen,” commented owner Amy Miller. “He had this look like he was going to do something, entered the room, then suddenly stopped in his tracks and had no idea why he was there. I can relate, I do that constantly.”
Bert confirmed he had a reason for going to the kitchen, but could not recall any specifics.
“It’s like, I just forget things within seconds,” Bert began. “I don’t know, it happens all the time, I’ll go into a room, and just completely forget why I went in there. I really have no idea. It’s as if the thought was just erased from my brain as I entered the kitchen. Maybe it was just to go eat? I mean, I went and ate anyway. As long as I’m in there I may as well grab a bite, right?”
Some experts point to old age or early onset Alzheimer’s, but most who have experienced such a scenario tend to agree, it’s just a natural occurrence in life.
“I do it constantly,” Bert’s friend Dave confirmed. “Sometimes I am so determined. I have a goal. Then just a few seconds later, gone! I can’t really explain it, but, it happens. Usually I just go eat something when it happens, just incase that’s what I was planning to do all along.”
Though forgetfulness is a serious issue, Bert is comforted knowing it’s relatively insignificant, as he does not have any actual responsibilities, on account of being a dog.
