Puppies invade pitch in Bolivia, but player ruins the fun

Now if this isn’t just a little bit of a cute overdose, we don’t know what is. Apparently bored with the goings-on of a match between The Strongest and Universitario in the Bolivian top flight, a few puppies decided to take to the field and play a game of their own.

Unfortunately for the three pups, an angry Universitario player didn’t enjoy their precious little romp. He snatched at one of the furry pitch invaders, wrestling with it for a bit. Not one to let a fun time be ruined, the pooch seemed to fight back, possibly even nipping the human-sized buzzkill.

That’ll teach him not to use his hands!

Luckily for humanity (and probably the player, lest he be taped harming an innocent puppy), a saintly ball boy intervened before the player escalated the incident.

The lesson here: puppies are the cutest and you should just let them play.

Dogs. World Cup kits. It does not get better than this.

There are two things in life that everyone loves: Pups and jerseys. So what happens when they are combined? Cuteness overload with excellent fashion sense and country pride:

Designer Alexander Campaz has come up with 32 dog jerseys for this summer’s World Cup, and is using Kickstarter to help produce them for the world.

And these aren’t just any old doggie kits. They’re special, just like the pups that will wear them — because we all know dogs deserve the best of the best.

The jerseys include:

-Fabrics used on professional jerseys (because dogs are as good as better than people)
-Active dry mesh (because it gets hot in the summer with all that fur!)
-Polyester mesh sleeves (because pups need flexibility for play time)
-Unique designs (because even dogs need to look fly at all times)

Basically, every dog should rock one of these this summer. Just look how happy this little pup is in his Brazil kit:

Husky invades pitch, delays start to League One match

English football had problems with Mother Nature this past week, with several matches being delayed or suspended due to extreme weather. But on Sunday, it was a dog that briefly held up a League One fixture between Crewe and Brentford.

Just as the teams were set to kick off, a large husky ran onto the pitch at Gresty Road, to the amazement of everyone involved.

We’ve seen plenty of animals — from chicken to squirrels — get lost on a soccer pitch before, but a husky is a first!
