Maria Thorisdottir also has a very good dog

The Battle of the Best Pups intensifies

Yesterday we watched Bethany England’s dog, Buddy, who sent Air Bud into an alarming downward spiral, work on his header skills in a park.

Today, Maria Thorisdottir and her very similar-looking dog showed a few things they’ve been working on.

If we’re being honest, it sure seems like Maria uploaded this video primarily to showcase her absurdly impressive juggling skills. We here at WAGNH have no problem with that at all, in fact, this particular writer spilled water on his chin the last time he tried to sip from a single water bottle.

Personally, I did not know that there were so many variations of juggling. I noted the switch to reverse, but I’m pretty sure there were two other variations that my brain is not wired to understand. I suppose when your surname translates directly to “Thor’s daughter”, remarkable physical feats come natural to you.

Also, shoutout to the very eager good pup who waited patiently for his owner to finish her part of the act before adhering to a countdown before snatching one of the balls from the air. You’d be hard-pressed to find a better set of good dogs on any other team.

Oh, and let’s also remember that Maria Thorsidottir can also do a trick or two with her feet, much to Arsenal’s chagrin.
