Friendship doesn’t know limits and ignores the differences. This little 2 week old chihuahua Lilly found an unlikely friend to play with, a Great Dane named Vago.
“Small dog syndrome” is a common phenomenon amongst little canines. Basically, it means that tiny dogs mistakenly think they are more powerful than bigger foes or pack leaders. Most of the time, they aren’t. But… then there are little dogs like this Chihuahua. I have a feeling he can pack a punch.
Obviously, this little dog has a bone or two to pick with her giant acquaintance.
They met at The Forks in Winnipeg, Manitoba Canada. Lilly is a fearless Chihuahua warrior, to her size doesn’t matter. She is a lot like the ant from the story about an elephant and ant, small, full of confidence and arrogance. Vago, on the other hand, acts with grace and gentleness, so unexpected from such a large animal. These two will put a smile on your face.
Watch as the tiny Chihuahua attempts to play with a really gentle (and much bigger) Great Dane, not taking no for an answer. It’s like the Chihuahua is trying to tame a dragon. A very friendly dragon!
This is probably the most adorable little play fight ever, with the two dogs being from the complete opposite ends of the spectrum:
Also, you have to give props to the Great Dane owner for keeping his dogs paw swiping to a minimum. One accidental smack and I feel like that tiny Chihuahua would have got his bell rung pretty good.
These two will put a smile on your face. Enjoy and share this adorable video with your friends and family.
Last Tuesday, as the Polar Vortex reached record low temps, neighbors noticed Maverick outside as usual and called the police stating that they feared he may freeze to death. He’s an outdoor dog who lives outdoors year-round. His owners insisted his living quarters were good enough for the record low temps, but police disagreed.
“If you see an animal, now you can call law enforcement and they’re able to act under this law to take an animal out,” said Heather Owen, One Tail at a Time. “So, it’s a lifeline for pets and for animals outside that are in a very bad situation.”
The new state law only allows for temporary seizure of animals.
“It’s a temporary fix and that’s important because it’s not like people are getting their dogs taken away and they can’t get them back. They still have due process under this law,” Owen said,
Maverick is currently residing in the Knox County Humane Society.
“He’s very loving, he’s very playful. He deserves a better life,” Knox County Humane Society Board Member Rox Parks said.
Neighbors say they’re happy he was removed because they think he may not have made it if left outdoors.
“We’ve had a lot of public outcry saying do not give this beautiful dog back,” Parks said.
While the situation isn’t yet resolved, this seizure is the first major case of the new law aimed at helping animals being enforced.
“I would hope that Maverick`s owners would work with the community and law enforcement to agree on a safe space for him, somewhere he can go when it’s warm or there’s another inclement weather because all animals deserve a warm home, a warm bed,” Owen said.
