Dad Hysterically Scrambles To Get Away From Pups Who’ve Confused Him For Mom.

“Hey, kids. I hate to be the one to break this to you, but you’re barking up the wrong tree.”

Dogs, obviously, have an incredible sense of smell, which they use from the moment they’re born to steer their way into the world. So you’d think these boxer puppies would be able to sniff out where, exactly, to go for their buffet-style lunch. But in a case of mistaken identity gone horribly awry, they targeted the wrong parent.


This is Remo, a boxer from Shady Valley Kennels of Portsmouth, Ohio. He’s male. But when his pups are hungry, they don’t think about little things like that.

So in the video below, this poor guy spends a full two minutes in a complete state of panic …


Leaping, springing, boinging …


Really, anything he can do to get out of the way …


As eight hungry puppies make a beeline for what they think is mom’s food!


And comments run the gamut, with some giving voice to poor Remo’s inner thoughts …


To admiration for his athletic maneuverings …


Honestly, you’ve gotta give Remo props for the amount of effort he puts into avoiding stepping on the kids.

Do boxers come with springs in their legs, or are those high jumps just fueled by pure adrenaline?



Watch the feeding frenzy in the clip below, and don’t forget to share to spread the laughs!
