An adorable baby emu named Oscar, who lives in a Minnesota home with a bunch of basset hounds decided that he wanted to play with someone, but the dogs were busy napping. In an effort to wake his drowsy playmates, Oscar pecked at their ears. The first hound was very tolerant of Oscar’s efforts, while another hound named Lily was a bit more excitable.
