Dog Literally Jumps For Joy Watching Horse Race On TV

Images show a wheaten terrier going happy crazy watching a horse race.

Lots of people like watching the horse races. Some may even jump as their horse closes in on a win. But this silly wheaten terrier, Bella, doesn’t seem to care who wins. This dog enjoys the horse race and bounces with excitement.

Bella calmly waits for the gates to open, watching intently. She is almost vibrating but manages to remain somewhat calm at this stage. She is poised for action. You might think she has money riding on the race outcome.

Bella enters bounce mode when the gates open, and the horses charge forward. It begins with a bounce. And another bounce. Some general barking and woofs are happening, too. Bella gets some air and a little hang time as she bounces up and down with her eyes locked on the race.

Once the horse race starts, the dog starts bouncing and barking.

Bella’s eyes never leave the screen, and her bouncing turns into serious boing-boing-boing. Her bounce rate increases as the horses race around the track. She barks as if she is cheering on her favorite horse. By the 8-second mark, she is getting a serious lift as her barking rises to a crescendo pitch.

While the dog bounces, the horse race heats up, with the horses bunching together around the first curve. Bella gets more excited as a clear leader emerges from the pack at 11 seconds. Her barking increases in pitch, and her bouncing continues, with her rear feet getting about 2 feet off the floor.

She continues bouncing and barking. The video ends before the race does, so we aren’t sure what happens at the end. But watching this happy dog urging on each horse in the race was a joy! Please share.
