He Can Because He Thinks He Can

I found this today.  It's a real gem.  Champis the bunny from Kal in northern Sweden, who likes to herd sheep.  Really.

I watched him over my morning coffee.

Apparently, according to his owner, Greta Vigren, who runs a sheep farm, Champis watched the sheep dog on the farm herding sheep.  He decided he could have a go too.  No self doubt.  No saying to himself, "I can't, I'm only little".   According to Greta, "He just started to behave like a sheepdog.  He's like a king for the whole group. He thinks he rules over both the sheep and the hens. He has a very big ego." [Source]

I'd like to get me some of that kind of self-belief.

Henry Thoreau  said...  

Live your beliefs and you can turn your world around.  

As far as Champis is concerned that might read, "Live your beliefs and you can turn a whole herd of sheep around.  And around. And around."  (I'm sorry.  I couldn't resist.  Don't judge me.)






Have a really lovely Tuesday.

  1. Thanks for posting this - I had heard about it but not seen it! Such a sweet bunny - I'm surprised he's not scared of all those little hooves so close to his face!

  2. Isn't this the cutest thing? It makes me so want to leave city living and live on a farm in the country somewhere with tons of animals. Champis is beyond adorable.

  4. Well, if Babe can be a sheep-pig, why can't Champis be a sheep-bunny? It's all about the attitude! xx
