This Dog is Scared... Because of a Leaf

Trending Now

Meet Leonardo, a boxer that is so protective of his territory that even the slightest nonthreatening thing can rile him up.

According to the dog's owner, Leonardo was barking quite a bit the other day. So the person, YouTube user "Senyin," went to see what was wrong. Turns out a breeze was blowing around a leaf, singular, on a ledge and scaring the you-know-what out of Leonardo.

Naturally, the owner took out her phone and recorded the incident. She uploaded it yesterday, and the 1:08-long clip has more than 50,000 views.

To the delight of his owner, the moving leaf kept puzzling the boxer. But eventually Leonardo snatched it with his mouth and brought it hard to the ground. He discovered that the object was inanimate and, by his standards, edible. He showed that leaf who was boss.

YouTube viewers are having fun with this clip. A quick sampling of the comments section yields such lines as, "I've never met a Boxer cursed with an overabundance of brains," "That leaf killed my parents... it's not to be taken lightly," and "Some men are like that too."

Burn.
