With the coronavirus forcing people into staying at home, plenty of us are turning to our silly dogs to keep us entertained. That is exactly what this fur dad from England has been doing since the start of quarantine.
Andrew Cotter works as a sports commentator for the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC), frequently covering golf, tennis, and rugby events for the channel. However, because most of the sports competitions had been put on hold, Andrew had been stuck at home with his two adorable Labradors, Mabel and Olive.
He basically had nothing on his to-do list, so he thought of using this free time to watch over his fur babies. That was when he came up with a brilliant idea. As he watched Olive and Mabel play with an orange rubber bone one day, he decided to turn it into a sports event and do a live commentary.
He then shared the clip online, where it immediately went viral and had garnered millions of views to date. Andrew went on and did a few more hilarious clips of his adorable pups, earning him a renewed fame in the online world.
Because of this, Dogs For Good, a charity in the UK that sends highly-trained dogs to disabled individuals, began reaching out to him. They invited him to do a fundraiser that would make use of his hilarious commentaries.
Donors only need to send in a video of their dogs at home and a voluntary cash donation to help the organization.
Andrew would then add his hilarious commentaries on the winning video for all the fans to see.
A few days after the fundraiser ended, the Dogs For Good staff announced the winner: an adorable Cavapoo named Nala, who could be seen hunting down a bird in their yard in the video. Andrew, of course, narrated Nala’s hunt with perfection, making the video go viral yet again.
To date, the clip had been viewed over 66,000 times on the Dogs For Good Facebook page. Watch Nala’s action-packed bird chase with Andrew’s commentary here.
When there is no sport, there’s always dogs. Here’s Andrew Cotter and Sky Sports presenter Sarah Stirk with #WinningFromHome winner, Nala. If you enjoy the video, please don’t forget to make a donation. With your support we can bring more people with disabilities and dogs together. https://bit.ly/2SEoOQs
