Worth watching to the end.
“Rasta” the rare Hungarian Vizsla slowly stalks a frozen wolf-like figure on a golf course (though it turns out to be a coyote). This is real time, not slowed down. The slow creep toward the sculpture actually took about 6 minutes, cut down to a bit over 2 minutes. The shot is shaky because it was recorded on an iPhone.
Notice Rasta’s “aha moment” when, upon discovery of the ruse, he seamlessly shifts into “play mode” and fetches his ball.
Historically the Vizsla is older than most breeds and its existence can be traced back to the 10th century. Through the years the Vizsla has held a rare position among sporting dogs – that of household companion and family pet. Experts say The Vizsla is a natural hunter endowed with “an excellent nose and an outstanding trainability.” Although they are lively, gentle-mannered, demonstrably affectionate and sensitive, “they are also fearless and possessed of a well-developed protective instinct.”
Primitive stone etchings, estimated 1,000 years old, show the Magyar huntsman with his Vizsla and falcons.
