Dogs are popular for being loving, intuitive, and protective pets. They’re also well-known for their instincts and heightened senses.
Unfortunately, those senses don’t usually work all the time, and we have proof in this story. Furry canines Zazu and Walle didn’t immediately recognize their dad, all because he had a mask on!
This family was out for groceries when this happened. Dad went in and did all the shopping, while mom stayed out to watch their Golden Labrador Retriever and German Short Haired Pointer.
After a time, dad came out with his shopping cart. The dogs just looked at him, and we could tell they didn’t immediately realize it was dad.
How did that happen when these canines have such strong auditory senses? Mom had to ask her furry sons if that was dad before they went over to him, wagging their tails in excitement.
They were relieved to know it was their dad, but this dog mom couldn’t help but laugh at how clueless her two boys were. They would have totally ignored dad if it weren’t for their mom’s question.
Things like this make us believe that dogs are not always in heightened-senses mode. That’s the reason we still need to train them on how to properly use them.
It’s cute, though, that they whined their apologies as they made their way to their hooman. They couldn’t believe they didn’t recognize dad!
It’s even cuter when this Golden Labrador Retriever and German Shorthaired Pointer tried to make up for their major gaffe. Zazu and Walle did everything to say sorry to their loving owner.
They hopped up and kissed their master, effectively letting him know how mortified they were of what just happened. They’re lucky that their dad didn’t seem to mind at all.
Thank you for making us smile today, Zazu and Walle!
