You’ll rarely find a dog that can resist chasing a squirrel. In this case, the dog, Mela, saw a red squirrel hanging on the side of the tree, and is taken for a spin as the squirrel seems to effortlessly hop from one side of the tree trunk to the other.






David Wagner, the dog’s owner, said this went on for about five minutes.






“No worries – the squirrel has survived on the top of tree,” he added.

This video has also elicited strangely profound comments online, like:

“So nice to watch. Full of meaning. They both need each other to enjoy a playful moment, but above all they need each other for us human beings to remember the wonder of God’s Creation.”

“Back in the time, I was as fast as the squirrel, but now I am as slow as the dog”

“Round and round the tree they go
Squirrel to fast dog too slow”
