Warning to the unsuspecting: in the first link, once the very cool HappyFunSeptember video ends, the website goes directly to an autoplay of Rakeyia Scott's devastating & graphic video of her husband Keith ­Lamont Scott's shooting by police in Charlotte NC. It's very startling -- the was nary a gap and no warning whatsoever -- and I'm not sure how to disable the autoplay on the ABC news website....

The alternate Spencer link doesn't have this issue. (ETA: and the videos are the same; maybe the mods can swap?)

Two things. First, this is AWESOME! We have senior bulldogs including a couple who don't get around so well (they ride in a wagon when we go places and they freakin' love it) and so this really warms my heart. The Porkchop payoff makes it even better.

Second - Good lord, Spencer is just about a dead ringer for our Hank! I kept doing double takes at this video. For the record, Hank gets around just fine, he's pretty freakishly athletic actually.

How does the personality of an Irish Bulldog compare with English or French, azpenguin?

I like how in the "Boxer walks down the hall" video, the other dog is just sitting there like Dammit, Sparky; have some dignity.

Can we PLEASE not have post titles with clickbait like headlines? "You won't believe what happens at the end!", seriously?

My neighbors foster dogs that had been in dogfighting or just generally abused. One of them was missing paws so he had a set of slip on paw replacements he would wear for walks turning him in CyberDog- hero of the 21st century!

1. Not the title.
2. No one here makes a habit of it.
3. It's only semi-ironic because I really wasn't prepared for Spencer's companion at the end of the story.
