This Aussie may just be a little pup, but she’s already accomplished great things…like fitting comfortably into this box. After all, rest is just as important as play (especially for puppies)!

This dog is clearly a genius. How many dogs do you know that listen so well and can do so many tricks? Looks like this guy is on his way to becoming an agility star.
