Dogs that spend all day running in circles

There's something worryingly post-human about this.

Or is it non-human?

Or is it all too human, and all too inevitable?

I wonder if the sense of futility that comes from being genetically programmed to run round and round in circles is necessarily greater than being programmed not to run round and round in circles. At least there's movement, and you're busy doing shit.

Disclosure: I'm not a dog.
