I guess maybe it just wasn't so shocking to us. But when it happens to us, it's a reflex action to grab the puppy and stop the behavior right that moment, not let the action play out. And by knowing the consequences that result from it. Like if the puppy gets the Thanksgiving tukey cooling on the counter, even just that one time, a counter surfer is now born. Nothing at all was meant to be taken personally, it was meant to be a heads up. I don't know about the other posters who were part of this "slam" idea, but I'd bet my life they feel the same way I do.
