I’m Inspired By This Dog-Training Cat Named D-O-G Who Makes a Difference Just By Being Himself

D-O-G (pronounced dee-oh-jee) the Cat is helping a St. Louis
dog training group get their canines in order by offering a
little lesson on what it’s like to be around a feline.

The Associated Press
reports
that Support Dogs, Inc. took in D-O-G over the
summer and put him to work. Their dogs are trained to help
humans who may already have a much less helpful animal in
residence. Assistance dogs need to be comfortable around other
critters, even critters that steal their toys, eat their food,
and bite them in the butt. D-O-G is willing to do all these
things for “practice” and so is considered something of a dog
trainer himself.

This video is worth every second of your time:

Support Dogs president and CEO Anne Klein wants D-O-G to get
credit for his “fearless” personality. I would also like to
note his expression of perpetual surprise and an enthusiasm for
shoe-stealing games.

D-O-G doesn’t seem to know what’s going on. He certainly
doesn’t understand the important role he is playing in the
lives of the dogs in his world, nor the ripple effect he will
have on quality of live for humans with hearing or mobility
issues. D-O-G is just being his asshole cat self, and it’s
helping. We should all be so lucky to contribute to
society as effortlessly as D-O-G, while also getting to play
with dogs. Just be yourself, and maybe the right gig will come
along.
