Alyssa Greene struck internet gold when she posted a cute video of herself doing squats and carrying her dog. Colonel happens to be a 70-lb golden retriever, which is some legit extra weight! Instagram viewers were inspired to try to lift their own dogs, and soon the #squatyourdogchallenge got started.
Now the hashtag is flooded with folks getting in on the silliness. From Yorkies to bulldogs, all dog breeds are represented as people show off their skills. Check out some of our favorites below.
If you want to try this fun trend, make sure you can safely lift your dog and that your dog is comfortable with the situation.
