What kind of tricks does your pet do? Most can’t do many, if any, but the few who can are pretty entertaining. That must’ve been why David Letterman did a set all about pet tricks. This particular trick is one of the best. Bailey, a little beagle from Buffalo, New York, knows a few tricks, but the one that got him some television fame was his version of playing dead.
There isn’t much else we’ve seen like it. Beagles are known for having very distinct personalities, and Bailey is definitely a jokester. Though remaining calm for the cameras and an interview, at his buddy Mike’s command, he does the best play dead you’ll ever see. Then he comes back to life. And dies again.
