Have you ever picked a fight with an older sibling, and then realize immediately that you bit off more than you could chew? This scenario isn’t limited to humans: these pups are a perfect example of what happens with a little brother gets brave – and then immediately remembers who the “big” brother is!
Little Brother seems like he’s up for playtime when he manages to surprise and chase off his big brother, but when the tables are turned, it seems like he loses his nerve! Suddenly, chase and a wrestling match don’t seem like such a good idea when Big Brother is on his feet and coming at you! Watch how calmly he puts the kibosh on play time when he realizes he doesn’t have the shot at coming out on top that he thought he had.
“Never mind. I don’t want to play this game anymore. Goodbye.”
Tiny pup philosophy: “He that fights and runs away, may turn and fight another day.” Good call, Little Brother. We bet you’ll get ‘em next time!
