Does any body still names their dog Spot?....

The SpotMini is a smaller, streamlined version of Boston Dynamic’s Spot robot, unveiled in early 2015. The company loves to mistreat its robot creations, and the new unveiling is no exception: The video shows SpotMini crashing to the floor after slipping on some deviously place banana peels.
Presumably the bullying is designed to show how stable and resilient the robots are, but they definitely will be used as evidence when humans are tried for crimes against robot-kind. And it does seem that SpotMini is at least a little fed up with its human masters.
In a coda to the video, SpotMini brings a human a Diet Coke. Instead of just handing it over, it pulls back and then appears to lunge at the human. When the human moves away, SpotMini hits a wall, and promptly falls over.
