Dog racing has long been the bastion of degenerate gamblers who can’t pony up for the fancier pomp of horse racing, and a racetrack isn’t the best place out there to be a dog. It’s a cutthroat industry. I a dog is too old to compete, owners often don’t see the point in taking care of them any longer, which means the industry has been rife with abuse. (By the way, ex-racers make great pets!)
But I’ve just learned that not all dog racing is propelled on the backs of mistreated animals. Dog racing, as this video proves, can also be the source of a guaranteed jackpot of a million awwwwws.
According to the video description#! [sic]:
They are Australian Cattle Dogs ,Ruger is 3 years and Rogue is 8 months. They are total clowns.The littlest one is a Rescue poodle/lhasa mix.He is right there in the mix with them at 3 months old.
The pooch triathlon consists of pushing other (sadly anonymous!) dogs in strollers and little toy cars, along with a solo scooter race. Yeah, you’re right: This is the most important video you’ll watch today. That is, until you watch the kitty stroller video:
