In a repeat of the experiment with Blessi, he at first stared
at the car . Due to experimenter error, I had not tested
the car on the tarp and it simply spun in place.
This did turn out to be a good lesson on tarp
desensitization as the win and Blessi moved
the tarp around.
I put the radio-controlled car on a rug with some
traction. Blessi quckly was very interested
in how the car moved.
Blessi thought the car was great fun and even
pushed it with his nose when it stopped moving.
I put a carrot on top of the car. Blessi "bonded"
with the car and started following it
around as it moved.
