Dogs Storm Pitch in Soccer Friendly, Adorable Breaks out Everywhere

Gabe ZaldivarPop Culture Lead WriterNovember 18, 2016

There is absolutely no time for would-be streakers and those who would stop a game all because they want to get on the field—except if those taking the pitch are a pair of adorable dogs. 

There isn't enough room on my face for the smile I am proudly wearing right now. 

Big Lead provides some additional information and claims this as the most adorable stop to a soccer game ever. 

We don't disagree, but would like to open this up to debate. 

The dogs come onto the field during a friendly between Galatasaray and VFR Aalen, a German second division team.

The moment may be familiar to some football fans. 

If you recall, a cat stormed the pitch during a game between Liverpool and Tottenham at Anfield in February of last year. The moment was so precious that it spawned a lucrative Anfield Cat Twitter account, which is still active a year later. So there is hope we may soon see a pair of dogs boasting in 140 characters or less. 

If we are forced to vote for one of these videos, it would have to be the new dog video, mostly because dogs are far superior to cats in every way. 

The canines run out, mandating that some of the players put a stop to their busy day and bend down to pet the curious creatures. 

I am beginning to think every single sport should have a dog timeout, which is far more useful than a TV timeout—and far more endearing. 


Hit me up on Twitter for more bow-wow-wow yippe-yo yippe-yay.
