Scottish sportscaster Andrew Cotter, who previously professionally narrated a mealtime race between his two dogs Olive and Mabel, quietly commentated a battle of wills between the two pups over a prized chew toy.
Olive had hold of the toy early in the game. The black dog clearly had the upper hand due to her greater age and size, nevertheless, she grew overconfident. Her mistake was in underestimating the younger and quicker Mabel, who patiently waited for an opening to make her move.
Now Mabel sensing this might be a chance, still waiting still believing, and you wonder what Olive’s doing. She only has to hold on. Going to the upright though high tariffs with no opposable thumbs high-risk at this stage and it’s gone and Mabel takes it. No mercy from the younger dog who takes this victory just Bas time runs out. A famous will built on patience and sheer belief.

Thanks for all the messages here. They have no idea what’s going on in the world or that they are being laughed at in many countries. In fact they have little clue about anything at the best of times, but anyone who has a dog knows how important they are just now. pic.twitter.com/InfXkntvCb
