Smart but goofy

So, just after being impressed by how smart our doggie is for knowing exactly where the treats are …

Jiffy found the treats

He goes and gets all freaked out by a water pipe during our walk. Not a leaking water pipe, and not even one as interesting as the photo below. Just a plain old black water pipe. Just a water pipe sitting there being inanimate. But Jiffy was growling at it, barking at it, and just generally protecting me from the very dangerous water pipe. Good doggie?

    Could it be because the pipe has been marked by other dog. Or by a cat?
