Fair Play

"Another indication of the dog's perception of fairness comes from a new experiment demonstrating that dogs who see another dog getting a reward for doing an act--shaking a paw on command--but who do not themselves get rewarded for the same act eventually refuse to shake anymore.  (No rewarded dog was moved by the clear injustice of the situation to share his earned bounty with his unlucky partner, though...)" --Alexandra Horowitz, Inside of a Dog: What Dogs See, Smell, and Know (New York: Scribner, 2009).

Ah.  That explains it.  I'm a dog.
