Pappy's Decision Tree

As Pappy and I go for a walk, he'll be trawling along at a good clip sniffing the ground. Suddenly, he'll scoop something up and swallow it down as if by sleight of hand... mouth... whatever. The whole sequence happens so quickly I never have any idea what went in his mouth.

How could he possibly find and eat something so fast? In analyzing this question, I plotted out a flow chart of Pappy's thought process for searching and gobbling. My theory is that he expedites the eating process by eliminating several superfluous steps, such as considering whether he is hungry or if the item is edible. He just swallows and lets his stomach decide.

If it's not attached it is automatically edible.

Nope, my muzzer does those funny drawings too. It drives my dad nuts. So Teka eats them.

I am more discriminating. I only eat smelly stuff. Like cat poop.

Buster,
Yes, I think this must be concluded.

Bella,
No, I'm actually the guy on the other side of the table making the consultant's life miserable.

Gus,
Thank goodness Pappy stays out of the poo... as far as I know. He's so fast.

Scrappy,
This is certainly the season for giving... a hard time. I like this one, it's new.

Adam/McGoogle,
You must be very orderly. What's your Myers-Briggs?
