Plenty of dogs love to play tug-of-war with their owners using a rope toy, but apparently playing the game with other animals is much more fun! Of course, not all pups have another canine friend around, so sometimes, they just have to improvise. And one Golden Doodle pup in particular had to go way outside of his own species to find a playmate.
In a new video that was shared on TikTok by @mags_n_mimi, we see a Golden Doodle puppy named Henri engaging in a friendly game of tug-of-war, but he’s not playing with another dog or even a cat. Nope. Just wait until you see him go head-to-head with a magpie.
Who knew that birds could get into tug-of-war like this? And the best part is that Mags, the magpie, seemed like she was totally into it and had no intention of letting go! People on TikTok are totally here for this cute pair. @J Genova said, “This bird is fantastic but doesn’t know she is a bird…. Laying on her back and kicking, killed me 🥰.” Another commenter, @kimber_moonshine added, “I’ve never in my life seen anything like this… this is by far the cutest interaction I’ve ever seen. a bird that acts like a dog.” And @Mbasa noted, “The dog is so gentle with the bird 🥺. It knows it’s bigger.”
Apparently this little game of tug-of-war wasn’t the pair’s first time having some fun together. Check out this other viral clip of them play fighting over a stick!
