This Hopping Puppy Is The Best Thing You'll See All Day

comments
Sure, we could spend hours (er, days) browsing cat videos, but, for those who enjoy a deeper dive into the scientific and philosophical realm of the animal kingdom, there's The Dodo. Covering everything from why cats purr to sting operations on tiger poacher rings in Sumatra, The Dodo is committed to creating an unprecedented community for animal-lovers.
Update: This story was originally published on April 18.
Creature the Boston Terrier is not the first puppy we’ve seen to bounce around for kicks — this little dog seems so happy leaping across a concrete warehouse rabbit-style. According to veterinarian Bruce Tannenbaum, Creature's hopping gait "isn't normal by any means" — but that doesn't necessarily mean it's a problem. "The way this dog hops could be an adaptation to some sort of muscular issue, or it could be neurological," Tannenbaum said. "But he's clearly learned to work around it. If you look at humans walk or run, you'll see that we all do it differently — that's what's going on here. He's just running a little differently."
