The headline says it all, folks! Every year at Emerald Downs, a Washington radio station hosts an annual “Wiener Dog Rally.” This year, one of the contestants was a tutu-wearing, wheelchair bound canine named Anderson Pooper!
It’s not exactly clear why the pup was named after CNN’s Silver Fox, but does it really matter? The slow-motion effect as Pooper crosses the finish line is priceless, not to mention hearing the excited race-goers chanting “Come on, A-Poop!” and “Go, Pooper!”
The disabled dachshund didn’t need to win the race in order to melt hearts. Heck, it didn’t even need a fully working pair of hind legs to try. And with the world nearly crumbling, isn’t that the spirit we really need to see more of right now?
