What’s the matter with these dogs? They’re bigger and stronger than cats. Why do they let cats dominate them?
Our family dog, Pepper, had to stay with us one weekend, and we were uneasy because there was a stray cat who’d had her two kittens here in our apartment just a few nights ago; and Pepper never met a cat she wouldn’t chase. We prepared to intervene quickly.
But somehow Pepper and Angel, without benefit of language, divided the apartment between them and there was no fuss at all. Pepper knew better than to mess with Angel’s kittens. We all had a nice, peaceful weekend.
Who doesn’t love a trip to the playground? (Don’t answer that.) Dogs do. They can relax on the swings, but the real action is on the sliding boards. It’s a lot easier going down the chute than going up.
You will have noticed there’s no footage of dogs on the merry-go-round.
This dog’s name is Stella. She likes to drive into huge piles of dead leaves. Her work in that field has come to the attention of the hiring committee at Quokka University; and they’re whispering behind fans in the drawing room, these days, that Stella may be in line to become QU’s first Dean of Student Capers.
Really, this is pathetic–big, strong dogs afraid of fuzzy little cats. Okay, a few of the dogs are cat-sized; they get a pass. But the others? For shame.
How scary is a cat? My little painted turtle used to live in hope that Henry the cat would feed him. He’d paddle all around, looking up expectantly at Henry–who was sitting there because, I think, he liked to watch the turtle. Who knows what was really going on between those two?
Do you get the impression this dog wants the chicken to chase him? I do. I’d also like to see what would happen if she caught him. But I don’t think the hen is giving it quite her all.
To the maker of this video–whoever you are, confound you! Why is the dog digging such a deep hole, and why is he so excited about it? Why is he acting like there’s someone or something down there? And then he just says “fap!” and stops, as though the whole enterprise no longer concerns him. But you–you have given us no answers! No enlightenment. You have left us to speculate… endlessly. Grrrr.
Fine-sounding headline! I wonder what it means.
This looks just like one of the happy puppies I use to get around a certain outfit’s robot censor. Puppies are good at getting around people. Getting around parrots, not so much.
There are humans stationed nearby to prevent mayhem. But really, how hard would it be for the dog to chomp down on the parakeet before anyone could prevent it? And why does the parakeet appear to be completely unconcerned for anything like that to happen?
Have hours of fun trying to get inside animals’ heads and understand their interactions. So much more complicated than you’d think!
Look, if you wanted a rocket scientist, you’d get a rocket scientist–right? You don’t need your dog to be a savant. Jolly and cuddly is better!
Even so, you do have to wonder, sometimes, what the dog could possibly be thinking…
I’ve never had dogs and cats at the same time. It looks like fun. I did once have a large land crab and a small tortoise in the same cage, but all we got out of that was the world’s slowest romance. The crab had not the slightest interest in being caught by the tortoise. I think you need dogs and cats to get truly humorous moments.
