Dogs are cool companions and buddies, but that doesn’t mean they’re perfect in every way. They also have their flaws, and their similarity to human behavior is uncanny.
These three dogs are all Goldens. Red Golden Retriever Harvey and Golden RetrieverJacques are the furry adults of the house, while the youngest one is a Cream Golden named Lily.
On this day, Jacques didn’t feel like doing much, so he plopped down on the floor. He did so in the hallway where everyone passes to get around the house.
That didn’t sit well with Harvey because he didn’t like obstacles on his path. He wanted it to be clear of anything, and he’s right to feel like Jacques’ presence there was unnecessary.
The dogs’ mom filmed the whole thing, and she captured Harvey’s woof of protest. There was no way he was gonna walk past that speed bump, so mom called Lily.
The Cream Golden stared at mom for a bit, and then after hearing what she needed to do, she proceeded to execute it. Lily stepped on the spaces that Jacques didn’t occupy, and she was through.
Mom found the whole thing hilarious, and after giving compliments to the youngest dog of the house, she turned back to Harvey. She thought that would have encouraged Harvey to proceed.
Unfortunately, Lily’s little demonstration didn’t encourage the Red Golden as mom hoped it would. Instead, Harvey gave a woof and then turned his back from the whole thing.
Jacques remained in his position, and he didn’t care about most of what’s going on. He found the hallway floor cooler than the rest of the house, so he stayed put.
These three dogs’ behaviors just mimicked a regular human’s common responses to challenges. Some refuse to deal, others wait it out, and the rest finds a way around obstacles.
Thanks for this accurate depiction of general human responses to hindrances. May we all find the courage to just be like Lily.
