Beefy the Skateboarding Dog Sucks At Skateboarding
Skateboarding dogs fall somewhere on the higher end of the spectrum of cool animal tricks (highest: dolphins jumping through rings of fire; lowest: waterskiing squirrels). Most humans can't even skateboard, but bulldogs seem to be unnaturally good at it. TheNew York Daily News has a feature today
on Beefy the skateboarding dog. The only problem? He sucks at skateboarding.
Watch the video above -- he's horrible. His owner has to push him on a skateboard; that's not even real boarding, dude. His owner says in the News piece that "he wants to enroll Beefy in a dog modeling agency in the hope of garnering appearances in movies and more ads." Good luck with that, man. Beefy is no Tillman:
Tillman is the dogyou know
. He's basically the Beyonce of extreme-sports-bulldogs. He skateboards, skimboards, and surfs -- he's a triple threat!
We're not sure why New York's dogs are falling behind their California competitors, but this summer is our time to claim the top spot. Dog owners: We can do this, but we need your help.
