This morning’s Today Show produced one of the weirder a.m. television moments in recent memory with a segment called “Sit, Stay, Read.” Crowded into a makeshift doggie park complete with astroturf lawn and prop fire hydrants, the fab four—Matt, Al, and Meredith, and Ann—were agog as a dog trainer showed how a pup named Willow can (kinda) read and understand signs that tell her to do basic tricks (check out the clip, below). Never mind that she got one wrong and couldn’t really handle it when Ann tried holding the sign. This dog is a scholar!

The next obvious question is, what did Willow think of The Lost Symbol? Kind of a letdown, right?
