Just a little something to help you start your weekend with a wag.

Dogs rule. If you didn’t already know that, check out this video of a very happy British dog named Tom as his fellow cheers him on toward the slide (or helter skelter, as they call it in the UK). Tom picked up the habit on his own, when a loved one went up without him.

And no worries about the dog being off leash at a playground: His owner says he is very good off leash, and of course, there were no children there at that time.

P.S. Anyone catch what his owner was saying around :07? “One goal, mind”? “One gold mine”? “Juan, go mind!”?

Look at his happy, smiling face afterward! Gotta love him! Tom’s video has only been making the rounds since March 12, and already it has close to 200,000 views!
