Camille gave "Auntie Nicole" kisses on the hands and face when "Auntie Nicole" asked who will win the Superbowl. The interaction went something like this:
"Cam, who do you think will win the Superbowl: the Eagles [*kiss on the hand*] or the Patriots [no kiss]?"
"Are you sure?"
"[*kisses on the face*] "
"You are telling me that the Patriots will lose"?
"[*kiss on the hand*]"
Camille (who later got a treat for being a prognosticator regardless of whom she would've chosen) predicted the Broncos' win in 2016, and "Auntie Nicole" has to trust Camille's canintuition or puptution. "Auntie Nicole" as Reilly's "Momma" also has to trust Camille's puptution since Reilly (who did not care to give kisses like Camille did) picked the piece of treat that ended up being shaped like an eagle's head when "Momma" ended up breaking a treat into an eagle's head-shaped piece, a sort-of-Patriots-logo-shaped piece, and a piece that she had to put aside in order to have equal amounts of treat pieces in her hand. After all, "Momma" did a "blind test" (since she couldn't do the kisses-on-the-hands-and-face test) and did not lead Reilly to pick the Eagles piece in her left hand (Maybe Reilly figured out that Tom Brady is not a good guy).
- "Auntie Nicole"/"Momma" seems to have coined those terms for "canine intuition" and "puppy intution", as neither of those showed up on a Google search 🙂.
- She hates that "blind test" term unless the blind and visually-impaired community are okay with it. Maybe she should've used "random test", though "blind" and "random" are apparently not synonymous.
- Incidentally, Camille almost got picked up by a falcon or hawk once when she was small, although she was on a leash and "Mom-Mom" was able to pull her back quickly. Maybe that's why Reilly wanted the Patriots to win last time—puptution could've told Reilly that her cousin was almost picked up by a falcon (albe that Reilly could get—and still gets—jealous of and loves being alphess over her!).
