Deer are usually shy types, scooting away from any other species that are in the vicinity. They tend to keep to themselves. It’s the nature of most wild animals. There are some exceptions, though that tends to happen if a newborn fawn is raised around others. The deer that we see in this video looks older and more mature. It’s definitely not a shy one, as you can tell from its boundless energy.
The deer is eager to play, bounding around with a lot of energy. The dog, on the other hand, is more intent on walking through the stream, looking for things. It’s not that he doesn’t like the deer ” he’d be snapping or barking if that were the case ” he’s just got more important stuff on his mind. Though I don’t know what could be more important than having a chance to frolick with a deer. That’s just me.
The funny thing about all this is that the dog is calmly sticking his nose underwater, looking for rocks to add to his collection. If he could talk, he’d be like, ‘Yeah. Yeah. Cool, you’re a frisky fella. If you don’t mind though, this rock collection ain’t gonna build itself. Thanks.’ The deer is eager to play, but this looks like an older dog who is set in his routine. He’ll probably go to the coffee shop later with his doggie buddies.
Interspecies friendships are always enjoyable for me to watch. I’ve never had a case of that in my life. My cat hated my gecko, for example. He’d sit and stare at him while the little guy roamed around, knowing that he was safe as long as the tank lid was secured. It was just fun seeing these two animals being comfortable around each other. There are other video of them for viewing.
Which did you think was cuter? The deer or the dog? It was hard for me to decide. Please tell us your thoughts below!
