While dogs are often branded as man’s best friend, that doesn’t mean they can’t enjoy the company of other animals.
Of all of them, you’d think that cats would be the ones they disagree with the most, but this GSD managed to tell a different story with his newfound brother.
Cats And Dogs Together?! Impossible!
It’s quite possible, actually, at least according to the Youtuber OldManStino where his German Shepherd, Beck, met the new addition to the family, a kitten named Bleu.
Initially, he was apprehensive of the kitten as he believed the attention he was getting from his pet parents was now going to be fully directed towards the new arrival.
He’d observe Bleu every chance he got to see if that was indeed the case while his owners reassured him that he was still loved.
The Boop Of Friendship
It took a bit, but finally contact was made and Beck finally realized that all Bleu wanted was to make friends with his bigger brother and just play.
Once it all clicked, the two made peace and have since become inseparable.
They chase after one another, playfight at times, or, when they’re both tuckered out, just lounge up together and relax.
Bleu has a bit more energy than Beck at his current age so he often ends up trying to get his big bro to get back up.
He’s hoping he hits his second wind so you’ll often find him nibbling away at Beck’s ear or jumping on his belly.
While you may think that Bleu is at a disadvantage here, you’d be surprised just how often he gets the upper hand with his cunning little mind where he gives Beck the slip by going up a tree or utilizing the house furniture.
That said, I believe Beck lets the little guy win a few times so things are kept interesting between them.
And Beck realizes the size difference between the two of them, so he’s extra careful to not accidentally injure Bleu.
He may slip at times, but nothing that’s too drastic.
The friendship between these two unlikely allies just goes to show that anyone can put aside their differences and come to a compromise given enough time and effort.
The results that follow are almost always going to end up being positive.
We too can learn to adapt that lesson to our real life interactions, finding common ground between people we meet and looking toward our similarities rather than our differences.
It would certainly help to make the world a better place for us all.
