A Very Patriotic Puppy Playtime

Patriotism takes many forms, but perhaps the cutest of all is found in this video.

One of America's favorite breeds seems to equally favor America.

You can swell with national pride watching these Golden Retriever puppies play with flags and a few literal stars and stripes.

Their play is set to the Star Spangled Banner, just in case it wasn't already perfect enough already.
 

 

Happy Fourth of July, patriots!
