Case in point: Take this video, in which JoeJoe the capybara good-naturedly tolerates two husky puppies who are equal parts adorable and demanding.
JoeJoe – who’s quite the tech-savvy giant rodent: You can keep up with him on Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, Tumblr and Facebook – has mastered the art of puppy tolerance. Even as one of them seems fairly intent on gnawing his face, JoeJoe remains serene and loving with the practiced air of a longtime puppy wrangler.
His go-to move? Laying his large head on top of one of the puppies to calm the ball o’ fluff down.
Learn from the master.
