This Golden Retriever named Riptide is serious about getting fit this year. Although he goes for a walk from time to time, such activity is not enough for him to stay active and healthy. So he goes the extra mile to get physical by joining various workout sessions.Riptide, who lives in California, is a friendly dog, so he finds it easy to socialize with others, even with a large group of people. One day, his curiosity was piqued when he saw a room full of people doing some forms of exercise. He knew he had to join them, so when everyone hit the floor to do bicycle crunches, Riptide did precisely the same.It was not the first time Riptide performed bicycle crunches, so he knew the drill. After lying on the floor, he put his four paws on the air, and then he started moving them just like how the others did it. The instructor was so impressed with his impeccable form, and he admired his determination because he did the exercise as long as he could.Everyone in the room was amazed to see the athletic dog joining them and doing the crunches as if he knew them by heart. They, including the instructor, held back their laughter because a dog doing bicycle crunches was such a rare sight. Riptide didn’t mind all the attention that he’s getting—he just continued exercising up to the last set.It was a real joy to see a dog taking fitness seriously. And something as inspiring as that should be shared with the world. Good thing, someone caught that impressive moment on camera and posted it on Humor and Animals Twitter page.Currently, the video has almost 1,000,000 views and more than 89,000 heart reacts. Check Riptide’s workout session in the video below.
So you want to know more about me, eh? Well, I am a Canadian, husband, and father of two young men.
I would say boys but they are not really “boys” anymore. They are 19 and 17. But they will always be my little ones. :-)
And, of course, we also have a dog. He is an Affenpinscher. Also affectionately known as a Monkey Dog.
His name is Monty. Yes, it is after Monty Python as he is a funny, crazy character.
Dogs have always been a part of my life. My parents started and owned a Dog and Cat boarding kennel just 20 minutes north of Victoria, on Vancouver Island, in British Columbia.
I started this website as a way to give back to the dog community. Which is full of many extraordinary dogs and owners doing many different and exciting things.
I hope you come back often to enjoy the wondrous stories I find.
Thank You for your time and interest.
