Meeting a child that you didn’t know you had might be a bit… OK, very awkward. Still, you soldier on and try to make the child comfortable. You might make some small talk and try to find some common ground. If you’re out to eat together, you pray that the meal arrives quickly. Hopefully the meeting will go quickly. Whatever you do, don’t do what the dog featured in this video does.
We see a daddy bulldog be roused from his important work of napping by his daughter puppy, whom he has never met before. I can just imagine his thought process – “Zzz… dreaming of eating a big bone… wait … what’s that. A puppy? HUH Am I on the ‘Maury Povich Show?’ Is this mine? I better smell… smells like mine. Well, what the heck do I do now?” The awkwardness between the two is what really makes it funny.
The two continue in their awkward play. Some of the expressions on the daddy dog’s face had me in tears from laughing. It’s evident that the same thing was happening to the people who were recording it, since there were times that they were laughing so hard that I was afraid that they were going to fall over from not being able to breathe. Finally, the dad gets tired of playing and storms off the screen.
This is like every dad who wants to play with his daughter but has zero clue on how to do it. “I can’t play rough with her… she’s a little girl! Wait. She’s barking at me! What do I do here? I wish her mommy was here now to help me here. I’m like a single dad! Wait… that’s my bone. Hmmm… is she going to get all the same wrinkles that I do? Thank goodness I don’t have any baldness in my genes…”
What did you think? Have you had a more awkward first meeting than this? If so, we’re sorry. Still, please tell us all about it in the comments section.
