VIDEO: Funny Dog Stomping On Its Shadow

When a German shepherd sees “another dog” of his size on the floor trying to get the better of him, he can’t just stand still and let the incident pass by. Here’s a surprising video by granfatha777 of a dog pouncing on his shadow. Does the dog think the shadow is prey, enemy or maybe just another dog friend to play with? This vid has already gone viral – and it isn’t hard to see why. How this German shepherd acts towards his shadow is both adorable and hilarious!

The dog’s treatment of his shadow as a somewhat separate, tangible entity reminds us of how Peter Pan’s jokey shadow falls of and detaches from its owner. Like this German shepherd, Peter Pan himself would struggle to catch and seize his separated shadow in the Walt Disney animated film. Unfortunately, Peter Pan in the end got his shadow “sewn up,” whereas our Mr. Shadow Catcher dog never had a chance to begin with. Well, at least he tried…

While it may undeniably appear amusing, a dog becoming seemingly obsessive with chasing or jumping at shadows could be a cause of alert. According to dog whisperer Cesar Milan, it may mean two things: either your dog lacks the necessary amount of activities, exercise, and play to release some pent-up energy or your dog may have some insecurity issues going on. This reflects poorly on the part of owner who might be depriving his dog of physical and/or mental stimulation. Shadow chasing could indicate that your dog is bored! German shepherds are a breed that loves strenuous activities and daily workouts. They require a few doses of “mind sharpeners” that can mentally challenge them and want to be kept busy all the time. So the next time you witness a German shepherd desperately pursuing a shadow, consider asking yourself: “Is this dog bored?”

VIDEO: Bulldog Father Meets Daughter First Time

Like father, like daughter! We found a very entertaining video by canterburybulldog on YouTube that stars an English Bulldog dad and his daughter. The father and daughter look so cute and the video is actually very funny! The dad looked like he’s going to freak out, probably asking himself why this tiny thing looked exactly like him. He looked like he didn’t know what to do so he crouched down and studied the strange puppy who’s guarding his bone. At some point, the father dog looked as if he wanted to play but the little one just barked at him (probably didn’t get the message). The puppy is such a sweet, adorable one and the dad’s behavior was priceless!

In case you are wondering why the puppy is only being introduced to the male for the first time – Canine mothers tend to be protective of their puppies during the first several weeks after birth. The males are generally unaware that their puppies are just too young to play. Thus, we should monitor the situation when daddy dog is interacting with the puppies because he may get too rough playing with the pups – because he cannot always tell when the puppies are ready to start engaging in normal dog social interaction. However, daddy dog doesn’t really play as the puppies’ father when the puppies are still young, partly because all he wants is to play with the puppies and also because mommy dog doesn’t allow him to get any closer. Mommy dog is the one who provides all the needs of the puppies while daddy dog becomes more involved later in training the puppies when they can already walk. Mommy and daddy dog teach their puppies the rules in dog life.

At some point in the video, daddy bulldog managed to tenderly pat his puppy daughter with his paw, perhaps thinking that she’s too tiny for a slap and that he would coax her into releasing his bone from being held hostage.

VIDEO: Cute Puppy Can’t Get Up

Every little Bulldog puppy has a lot to learn, including (surprisingly)… how to get up on his own. Well, what can we say – the cute French bulldog in the viral video below by dogsforobama appears to have only scratched the surface.

His ordeal? How to roll off his back as soon as possible so that he might not be branded as the “upside-down turtle” of his pack. LOL.. not that it’s actually bad to expose his belly and go side to side with legs up, but to be not able to stand on all fours again can be… well, how should we put this, annoyingly frustrating! Very endearingly funny it may seem how this puppy tries, but at least he is almost there one step at a time…. After all, you can’t beat an energetic puppy with an instinctive nose for fun with just a get-up task. He’ll eventually make it. The breed has survived to this day so we will assume that they figure it out.

Bulldogs are smart and inquisitive breeds, although their notorious adamancy might, at first, be a vexing problem. They may not recognize your leadership and treat you as their household boss during the first moments they are brought home. The first weeks of life of any bulldog puppy are a valuable period to learn all sorts of things, be it positive or negative. In this period, the dog’s experiences and degree of socialization will determine his future development. There can be just two things that can happen in the end: A behaved, obedient dog or a naughty one with an honors in undesirable behavior! 😉 Obviously, the latter is unthinkable, but the ball is always in the court of the “alpha dog” – that is you, his owner. Like any other dogs, the road of owning a bulldog will mean you have to be your best, but the rewards of loyalty and companionship from these thickset canines are certainly fulfilling.
