Olly the Jack Russell Terrier may not have won the top title at the UK’s 2017 Crufts Dog Show, but he walked away the champion of our hearts.
This spirited pup turned viral sensation proved, in spectacular fashion, that you can mess up but still have a blast while doing it.
In the downright delightful clip—which has reached over 3 million views in just a few days—Olly truly does his own thing during the agility course.
Whether he’s nose diving into a panel or running into the corner to take a quick recovery break, Olly does it all with a smile on his face and excitement in his step.
Olly’s eagerness to just participate was infectious. His owner laughed throughout Olly’s routine, while the overjoyed announcer chuckled, “He’s having a ball!”
The video may be just a minute of sheer happiness, but Olly’s spirit and can-do attitude will stick with us forever.
