Stray Dog Acts a Turner in a Lively Game of Jump Rope With the Children of the Kelson Favela in Brazil

A stray dog in the Kelson Favela in a suburb of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil nicknamed Bolinha (Marble), acted as a very capable turner in a lively game of jump rope with the local children. In an interview with Globo Rio de Janeiro, longtime resident Ricardo (Rick) Cavalcante spoke about the funny dog.

She is always here in the street playing with the kids, then last week they gave the rope in her mouth, but she did not let go and continued to play. When I saw, I ran to pick up the phone and shoot. Her name is Bolinha because the boys are here in the street playing ball, then she gets in the middle and is hindering the game,
