If you follow the skateboarding dog scene, you’ve probably noticed that most of the world’s elite skateboarding dogs are bulldogs. World record-holding shredder Otto is an English bulldog from Peru, and he’s the same breed as Tillman, perhaps the most famous skateboarding dog of all time.
Hello. The internet says that today is National Pet Day, the day for pets. Bring forth the pets!
Astros shortstop Carlos Correa has an unbearably cute puppy; this is not a drill. Groot looks like some kind of husky, and he enjoys chasing soft grounders.
Here we have video of a very good dog playing fetch on the Washington Capitals’ ice rink, and it’s more entertaining than any hockey game I’ve ever seen:
An excited dog got loose and bounded into a World Cup cross-country skiing race on Sunday in Quebec City, and it was exactly as cute as you’d think.
Fifty-seven-year-old Mitch Seavey became the oldest and fastest musher to win the Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race when he pulled into Nome, Alaska, yesterday. It was Seavey’s third win in 13 races and his runtime of eight days, three hours, 40 minutes, and 13 seconds unseated his son, Dallas both as reigning champion and…
Right in the middle of a dang bike race!
This is Olly, a rescue dog, and Olly is very eager to compete in the agility competition at Crufts, the U.K.’s biggest dog show. But eagerness does not always translate to competence.
The Brazil Open brought rescue dogs on court to retrieve tennis balls, in an effort to promote local animal shelters in Sao Paulo. Just like last year, the practice—like the dogs—was very good. This year’s crop of pups: Cindy, Nanda, Pretinha, Mia, Arlete and Ovelha. I couldn’t tell you which one of them was caught…
There’s not much I can give in the way of context for this video. The excited announcer is commentating in Italian, but that doesn’t necessarily mean the race was in Italy. There are no races worth filming happening in Italy right now, and also it’s winter, so this grainy footage is probably old.
The 141st Westminster Dog Show is happening right now. During the day, nearly 3,000 dogs representing over 200 breeds are narrowed down to a single best of each breed. Last night, the top dog from the hound, toy, non-sporting, and herding groups went head to head. Tonight, sporting, working, and terrier groups will…
Have you heard? Your dog might have an affinity for the Devil’s lettuce. Don’t take it from me (or your dog, who can’t talk [if they can, please email a video to us]), take it from the paper of record.
I went to the set of this year’s annual Puppy Bowl, and I made sure to bring a camera. The more I type, the more you’ll have to scroll past to see the baby animals, so I’ll cut that shit out.
Tonight in sports news: The Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show will feature three new breeds this year; the sloughi (above); the American hairless terrier (hairless); and the pumi (fluffy).
As fans and followers exclusively of high-quality soccer, no one here at Deadspin picked up on the somewhat curious case involving the wonderfully nicknamed MLS player Juan Manuel “Burrito” Martínez and his mutually terminated contract with Real Lago Salado. Reported then only as a “personal issue” that led…
No offense to Al, because all that’s available to issue a draft grade on his dog is this video, but those ball-collecting skills are a major red flag.
The camera lingers on the Stars bench. Slowly, it pans up and to the left before settling on a pair of fans just above the tunnel. A subtle zoom reveals: it’s a dog.
This gag usually entails videos that aren’t sports, and come on genuinely slow news days. Well, this is absolutely sports, and no matter what sort of highlight-reel dunks or goals come tonight, this is better.
