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. The New 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.
Tillman is the dog you 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.
