Random Dog Decides To Interrupt High School Football Practice

She wouldn't take no for an answer 😂

Practice makes perfect — but petting a dog is much more fun, right guys?

Guys?

That's evidently what this charming basset hound in Montana had in mind when she decided to pay a visit to a group of football players from Geraldine-Highwood High School — smack dab in the middle of their training session.

Much to the pup's chagrin, however, the players seemed to take some convincing; they were sorta busy, after all. But as video from the adorable incident shows, she wasn't about to take no for an answer.

The dog even offered to be their new ball.

Turns out, the dog was a random visitor dropping in on the team's practice. But despite displaying what might best be described as "the antithesis of athleticism," sure enough, she made the cut.

"The head coach told me she just showed up at the start of practice and no one knew where she came from. They were referring to her as their 'mascot,'" Thomas Wylie, who was there filming for KRTV News, told The Dodo. "It’s a very small town so I assume she made it home or back to her owners alright. But she was as cute and friendly as can be. Just wanted to play with the players and be a part of practice."

This pup's performance on the field that day may leave something to be desired from a sports perspective — but she's a star in our book.
