When you’re tuckered out after a long walk- make the hoomin do all the work! Or, as Jena J. puts it: “Step one: Go hiking! Step two: Have fun! Step three: Get carried when you’re tired!

What we have here is…a puppeh, WITH SMALLER PUPPEHS IN SADDLEBAGS. GAAAAAAAAAA. “Hi guys my name is Daniel P. and I work in a veterinary practice in Bangor, County Down, Northern Ireland. This video I shot is of the receptionist Suzi and her dog Tilly helping out with the two Foster Puppies Suzi is looking after :) -it would be great if you could use it on Cute Overload.”
[*Note: “XL” in this case is ’40,’ not ‘Extra Large.’ Mom Taxi format uses roman numerals.- Ed.]
[*Note: Yes, this is the second Mom Taxi of the day. There is no rule against this. -Ed.]

According to Jennifer B., the author of the story, Champy has been hanging out with (and on the back of) Morris for two years now.
Quoting the article, she says “Morris will go riding for hours and sit on Champy’s back when he’s grazing and walking about, he loves to ride him when I’m trying to do training. They certainly walk about a lot together.”
