Baby Emu Runs Amok While Patient Basset Hounds Try To Relax

Some dogs have endless patience.

Older dogs, especially, know how to deal with little babies. Of course, you have to be careful about introducing dogs to babies of any kind, because you never know how they might react. However, there’s a pretty good chance your pooch will be great with kids.

The basset hounds in the video below have the tolerance of a saint. They’re not just dealing with any old baby, but a baby emu!

This little guy really wants to play with the basset hounds, but the dogs clearly just want to rest. When the baby bird tries to get one of these old souls to frolic with him, the pooch simply pretends he’s not there.

When the emu starts to nibble on that same dog’s ear, the dog remains stone cold! He must be used to all sorts of shenanigans. He was, after all, once a puppy himself. He knows what it’s like to be young and so full of energy.

Watching this emu baby dart around a room full of droopy-eyed basset hounds is enough to keep a grin on your face for the whole entire day. Honestly, if this doesn’t make you smile, then I don’t know what will!

Have your dogs ever had to put up with something as annoying and cute as this little emu? If so, I sure hope you got it on camera!
