Viral Video: Pooch Shows Off Table Tennis Skills

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A multi-talented black collie with a knack for sports showed off his skills at table tennis for a video going viral online.


The video, shared on YouTube by America`s Funniest Home Videos, features the collie, named Auggie, holding a table tennis paddle in his mouth and using it to return his owner`s serves."


Dogs are naturally athletic; when I take my pooch to the dog park I enjoy playing Frisbee with her, and I beam with pride when she makes a breathtaking catch.

But this showoff collie puts my dog to shame with his skills at table tennis. If I gave my canine companion a ping pong paddle she might chew it up, but she wouldn`t return serve, not in a gazillion years.

But I love my pet even though she can`t play table tennis; she`s a pro at fetching a ball, catching a Frisbee and roughhousing with me.
