For as long as dog has been (w0)man’s best friend, he’s been working. From shepherding livestock to serving on K-9 units to guiding the blind, dogs have done jobs better than most humans could do ’em, to be honest. (Chalk it up to that sense of smell!) And now, dogs are taking on gigs we never imagined they’d do—ones we secretly dream of. We mean, acting in Oscar-nominated films? C’mon.
OK, OK, so they’re not exactly impressing us with their backhand, but these dogs are playing a major part on the tennis court: ball boy. Whoever thought to turn a dog’s favorite pastime into something with more of a purpose was kind of a genius. Plus, who wouldn’t want to hang out with Venus Williams? Jealous.
Every single day, Daisy is changing a kid’s life, and let’s be honest: there’s nothing cooler than that. We’re so inspired by her heart for helping children read, and we love seeing those reading skills (and confidence levels!) get a boost.
Fashionista (Or Should We Say Fashionisto?)
He has more Instagram followers than any of us will probably ever have, and he wears a suit like none other. Menswear Dog, as he’s affectionately known (his real name is Bodhi), is always wearing the dopest threads and giving off a general calm, relaxed, and confident vibe. So effortless.
His sunglasses alone are enough to crown him king of cool, but the fact that this dog literally protects the runway is amazing. His greatest responsibility is chasing off birds, which can interfere with propellers and even completely dismantle engines. That’s some dangerous business!
Lost & Found
Take all of our money, KLM! There’s nothing better than a touching airport reunion video, but when you throw an adorable little dog into the mix? Ooh wee. Unfortunately, this little guy’s job as “returner of lost things” isn’t actually real; this was a publicity stunt by Dutch airline KLM. But if you’re asking us, it totally should be.
