Didja ever notice there’s no shortage of people telling us we can’t do something?
Well I like surprises—people and animals that do awesome things because they don’t know they’re not expected to do them well.
I’ve been seeing more dog adoption descriptions that note a dog as being suited to agility work. They’re always mixes of Border Collies, Australian Shepherds, Golden Retrievers, and other active, fast dogs. When was the last time you saw a description of a St. Bernard listing it as excellent for agility?
I thought not.
Here’s a very stately dog showing us how to do agility, St. Bernard style.
And the next time someone tries to tell you you’re not cut out for something, think of this elegant St. Bernard and his awesome agility run.
