Years ago, the neighborhood Asian Silver Pheasant liked to sit on the deck with my sweet little corgi, Edith Anne. I wouldn’t call them best friends, but they did seem to enjoy each others company.

Subject: [Tweeters] this boxer and birdy story has me fascinated

so i dug up some videos that i could watch here in the EU, and thought you might want to see them too:

this video (1:03) features rusty the boxer with the wee nestling on his back:


this video (1:22) features rusty the boxer, snoozing with "birdy":


and these two videos absolutely blew me away. (keep in mind that this is a highly active working dog breed that is just 2 years old!)

this video (0:25):


and this video (0:39):


how did this dog become so gentle with a tiny, fragile being??
