Everything finally seems to be going well, or is it?
I’ll admit I’ve watched this video several times. It’s such a fascinating display of species interaction — and there is the unexpected blooper to give it charm, too.
It looks like a puppy is meeting the family rabbit. That’s the only explanation I can figure for why the rabbit so utterly calm in the face of a jumping, barking dog.
First, the rabbit seems to want to say hello, but the spastic reactions from the dog make it retreat to a corner. Both then take exploratory steps forward, followed quickly by retreats.
And the interaction isn’t only between rabbit and dog. Catch the dog’s look at the person holding the camera at 0:51 seconds. It’s almost like he’s saying, “Are you seeing this? There’s a fluffy animal in the corner!”
At 1:50, you can catch the rabbit now giving the person holding the camera a look. I can only guess that he’s puzzled about why he’s been subjected to the antics of this crazy pup.
