Tito the Boston Terrier has never met a ball he didn’t like. Tito also seems to suffer from a Napoleon complex, and isn’t at all phased by his petite stature. Combine these two aspects of Tito’s personality and you get this video of one little dog conquering a very big red ball … despite some initial technical difficulties. Proving that the Olympics are perhaps far from over, Tito’s enthusiasm sends him flipping over his favorite red ball — literally! While Tito’s stunt isn’t quite as intentional and sublime as those of TreT the Ukrainian “barkour” dog, Tito gets points for getting back up on his paws unscathed and chasing down the red ball that attempted to assault his doggie dignity — and then winning!
After some negotiating, Tito and the ball reach a truce, agreeing to play peacefully and respectfully for the rest of Tito’s hour in the dog park. Tito was like, “Hey, big red ball, why do you have to be so big? I just want to play.” And the big red ball was like, “Sorry, Tito, I didn’t mean to do that. I’m sorry I’m so big. Let’s just play.” And peace and justice was restored to the dog galaxy.
