And they’re off! Sports commentators get stir crazy on lockdown, just like the rest of us. And with nothing else to do, one professional sportscaster is using his powers to bring a little levity to the internet.
All You Need is Dog
UK broadcaster Andrew Cotter, who more typically commentates golf, tennis, rugby matches, and even the Olympics, found inspiration in his beloved Labrador retrievers, Olive and Mabel.
Focused. Relentless. Tasting Absolutely Nothing.

Andrew puts the girls’ food down, then proceeds to give a running commentary of the typical Labrador speed eating, just like a horse race. You’ve got to hear it to believe it. Truly inspired.
One paw to control, and a switch!

Such a strategy, with Olive holding the coveted West Paw Bone. Will she drop it? Watch and see!

“Mabel is piling on the pressure here, doing nothing at all, and that’s the beauty of it.”
“A message from management: you’re a good dog, yes you are.”

“Sorry Mabel, if you’re gonna do that, could you just switch off the video functioning again so we don’t have to see it?”
Mabel Heavy Tail Use. Everything’s Amazing. Happy to Be Alive
When not on lockdown, you can find Andrew, Olive and Mabel enjoying the mountains and beaches of the United Kingdom, which Andrew shares on his Instagram — give him a follow!
Here are some great shots of Olive and Mabel enjoying their adventures.
Take heart, puppers, you’ll be back out there soon.

And Andrew, thanks for the laugh. Just what the world needs right now!
