We’ve been best buddies with dogs for millennia. We used to train them to protect our property and herd our sheep and livestock. Over the decades, though, our dogs have taken on new roles in our lives, and they can occasionally surprise us with how they might be of assistance.
In a viral video, a corgi assisted his human father in clearing snow from their driveway. Clearly, the dog could not use the shovel to complete the task. So, the canine devised another way to assist his owner.
This is precisely what this enthusiastic dog did for his owner. While his father shoveled, the dog was right in front of him, performing backflips whenever snow was tossed his way. We do not know how you feel, but if our dog did it, it would make us grin from ear to ear. Yes, the dog chose to cheer his fur dad on while he did the hard work.
This corgi should also be praised for his acrobatic abilities. Depending on their breed, dogs can be rather athletic, but few of them can perform backflips. But looking at the footage, the corgi was not doing backflips on purpose. He was attempting to catch the snow that was being tossed over his head.
This caused him to leap into the air and tilt back his head. He then does a backflip in order to avoid landing on his back. Whether intentional or not, this dog’s ability to do this repeatedly in rapid succession is rather astounding. This furry acrobat is capable of giving gymnasts a run for their money.
Even though he is not physically assisting his father, we nevertheless consider this a significant contribution. Snow removal can be a dull process, but if you have a dog like him to keep you entertained while you work, the chore becomes more pleasurable.
