An international between Chile and Venezuela was interrupted on Monday night after a dog ran onto the pitch — not to interrupt the game, but to get some love.
After a solid zoomies session showing its 40-speed, the dog received a few more belly rubs before being ejected from the pitch one final time.
I appreciate that the players adhered to international dog law, which states that if a pup requests tummy rubs, you better give it those tummy rubs. For the moment a dog rolls onto its back and shows its belly, there is a glitch in the space-time continuum, and the belly must be rubbed, or time will not resume.
Thankfully these players ensured the belly was scratched while the crowd roared in approval of the pup. The only area I think the dog crossed the line a little was asking for so many different tummy rubs. It got some from the keeper, the referee, and two more players — and still looked like it wanted more. Sorry pup, you’re cute and all, but people are trying to work here, and you’re really interrupting them.
Who am I kidding? I can’t stay mad at you. Good dog.
