Hm. My ex did the same thing when I offered her water.

Man, I miss Demolition_D's anime reviews!... He still streams on Twitch though...
My sister's dog does the same thing with cardboard boxes and leather hats.
This hurts to watch. My old dog, witch looked very similar to this one would react to bottles the exact same way. At one point I accidentally poured a little beer in her nose which resulted in her sneezing uncontrollably. For the rest of her life (which was like 10 years), if you ever held a bottle up like that she would flip out.
Used to do a similar thing to this with my dog too.
You stop, tense up, outstretch your index finger and *immediately* he'd know what's up. Approach him slowly, making a high-pitched humming noise (similar to a mosquito in your ear), and play-time is officially on.
When he was younger, this was enough to get a full-on case of the zoomies. Later on it was enough to make him young again, if only for a little bit.
I think most dogs will have a thing like this, combine a noise with the way you act in a certain context and they'll latch onto that signal as "oh my GOD it's time to play!"
Title should be, "Evil dog could kill boy but chooses not to".
