This poor pup forgot to bring his toy in from the yard. Now, the fox has found it!

You might not have thought a fox would want a dog toy. Or maybe you thought a fox wouldn’t have even known what to do with a dog toy, even if he found it. But this fox sure caught on quickly. He’s having a blast! He’s throwing it in the air, pretending it’s a mouse or something to hunt. And he seems blissfully unaware of the toy’s owner a few yards away behind glass. The poor dog is throwing a fit! “That’s my toy,” he is saying, “Give it baaaaack. Mommy, mommy, make him give it baaack!”

But the fox doesn’t seem to notice. He’s wayyy to busy having a great time.

Foxes and dogs have a lot in common, but it’s important to remember that foxes are wild animals. The fox here is acting a lot like any regular dog might, but that doesn’t mean we should bring a fox into our homes as pets. When we can enjoy them from a distance, we all win.
