West Hartford Dog Befriends Fawn

Bogey, a 6-year-old Cockapoo from West Hartford, had a very important "babysitting" job on Tuesday morning.

Bogey, who is owned by Betty and Seth Feigenbaum of West Hartford, was out with Seth for a morning walk on the Canal Road right-of-way when he met a lonely fawn.

Watch as Bogey befriends the fawn, mimicking its behavior.

Don't worry, the mom returned, Seth said.

Just adorable! I'm surprised the fawn let you get as close as you were.

Like they say, "a picture says a thousand words". Why can't we just all get along, no matter if we are human or like this dog and fawn. What an Example! We can do it!

How sweet! Cockapoos are my favorites. Betty, can I take him to lunch with my cat?

at least those idiots at the EPA didn't take down bambi,,,like they took down the mama bear a few weeks ago; senseless killing it and leaving the cubs to fend for itself....that bear did NOT attack ANYONE.....it RAN AWAY...from people...it did not ATTACK....

I agree with you Greta. The killing of the mother bear was unnecessary. The same family was in my neighbor's backyard a week earlier and left peacefully. All were tagged already so were being monitored. Hopefully her cubs are surviving.

i find that entire episode and interaction between that woman and the supposed attacking bear...rather odd; firstly, why would anyone in there right mind, use any part of their body, to deflect or interact physically with a bear!? did this woman not have a broom handy..or a pot/pan and a utensil to scare it away? instead she states the bear swung her? really now??; if that was the case, her leg would have been gashed open...i find her story,,,"unbelievable' and what was this person "thinking" even if she did use her leg to "kick the bear"....and btw, if these bears were "tagged"..and being monitored by the EPA,,,when/how does the EPA monitor them...and how did they not know this bear family was in the "neighborhood"? shame on the EPA...and their senseless act of taking out a bear just looking for scraps to feed her family. this type of bear is not man-eating...it is a vegan! was a vegan!!
