This is a most precious video of English Bulldog Chaucer meeting his puppy girl. What a great name! Chaucer. Someone’s a fan of Canterbury Tales. The puppy girl approaches her Dad. Chaucer took just half a minute to warm up before he melts to his daughter’s charm.
He has the most humorous way of inviting her to play. He suddenly backs up from her, the way puppy raises their behind when they invite us to play. His daughter responds with a bark that startles Chaucer. The women in the background were so engrossed in this interaction and so delighted by it that they seem to be having a better time than Chaucer and his daughter.
