How many of you can say that your pet can help you do your work? If I put one of my cats up here to do my writing, it would turn out like this: sjfifafaj;a fak;afo’a. That’s because cats don’t know how to type. I think they would destroy my pencils and drawing papers too. But there are some animals that do help out their humans with their jobs. I’m not talking about a service animal either. Take, for example, this pooch that’s doing amazing stuff in this video –
We see Elwood, who is a rescue dog, and his daddy out in a backyard/forest type situation. The two of them are working on clearing bamboo stalks out of the yard – bamboo can hurt other types of growth, so it’s important to get rid of them. And Elwood is there to help. He grabs each long stalk and leads it out of the woods and lays it in a growing pile before rushing back to get the next one.
Elwood is SUCH a game worker. He wants to help his daddy so much and he eagerly runs back and forth to grab each successive stalk. The bamboo is also that he loves to gnaw on, given how strong it is. This is good for his teeth since it massages his gums and other parts too. So, this is a win-win situation for all involved. Daddy gets to clear out the yard.
I loved the camera angle on some of the shots, especially when it’s from the point of view behind Elwood’s head. It just makes it all the more immersive. I have a feeling that his Daddy is a ‘Blues Brothers’ fan since the name of his pooch is the name of one of the characters in the movie. This pooch doesn’t put on sunglasses and a black fedora, but he steals the show in his own way.
Pit bulls get such a strong rap against them. I’m glad that Elwood was rescued. Check out this cutie helping his daddy in the video just below.
