Why 'Dog.new("Fido")' still works if we have now such class?

I'm wondering, when we renamed 'Dog' class to 'Cat' class why

dog = Dog.new("Fido")
dog.fetch("ball")

still print anything if we don't even have such class as Dog?

1 Answer

He didn't rename it. He just copy/pasted the code and created a similar class with the name "Cat". The Dog class still exists in the video
