Adorable seven-year-old bulldog Yun Ja has inspired me to be a calmer, more patient person.
How did a silly bulldog make me want to change my ways? Well, it’s pretty simple, you see. When a green lizard hopped onto the short pup’s back unexpectedly, he didn’t freak out, running around trying to buck the reptile off his back (like many of us probably would have).
They say you should always exercise with a buddy, however I’m not sure the rules apply to our furry friends.
Trying to show off for the camera, this athletic dog owner begins a set of push-ups, completing just nine before his doggy best friend decides he wants in on the action. Completely unprovoked, this exercise fanatic pup hops onto his owner’s shoulders to add a bit more weight to each completed push-up.
It’s a rare treat for many rescue dogs to get to run around and play with other pooches…or even interact with humans. Most of the time, they’re kept in small, cramped kennels while they await their forever family’s arrival.
But that doesn’t mean the dogs don’t need — and crave — attention from the outside world. Not only does it help them to become properly socialized, it also ensures that the dogs are healthy thanks to the much-needed exercise.
That’s why what the St. Joseph High School Cross-Country team did for a bunch of shelter dogs is especially sweet. They go out on frequent morning runs…but just the other day, they decided to bring some new friends along for the fun.
