According to Mail Online an English woman, Krystyna Lennon, says that her dog, Princess, can put people to sleep just by looking at them. The skill is linked to the primal ability of dogs to hypnotize prey.
Not every dog has the skill, she says. Either they have it or they don’t. Even if they have the skill, they need to be very well trained and well behaved. The two of them are touring England, performing for audiences.
Ms. Lennon is the niece of professional hypnotist Hugh Lennon who had a black Lab named Oscar who could also hypnotize people. When they retired because of poor health, Ms. Lennon and Princess began to perform.
Dog expert Stan Rawlinson says it’s all bunk. He claims that Ms. Lennon is the one doing the hypnotizing.
Ms. Lennon countered: 'A lot of people are very sceptical about the show and don't think that a dog would be able to do it - but once they see it, they are gobsmacked."
(Don’t you love gobsmacked? I can't wait to use it.)
So here is a video of Princess performing for an audience. Do you think--
- The people are on the payroll pretending to go under
- Ms. Lennon is doing the hypnotizing
- Princess is a puppet
- Princess is hypnotizing them and you are gobsmacked.
