Sparky, a 5-year-old mini bull terrier, is not a fan of doing any physical activity.
He would rather stay with the family and be cuddled than do anything that would make him sweat. For him, lying down all day is way more exciting than going for a walk around the neighborhood.
Sparky’s owner, Silvio Siamo, is very much aware of this. He has already accepted that Sparky is one lazy dog, but he still loves him just as much. During one of their walks, Sparky decided to stop suddenly in the middle of their walk, lay flat on his stomach, and let Siamo drag him all the way home.
Siamo doesn’t expect a lot from Sparky, especially during his workout. But, everything changes when the two are left with no choice but to stay at home after Italy put the entire country under quarantine.
Siamo, who is a fitness buff, continues to get a daily workout at home. Sparky feels left out whenever his owner performs his workout routine, so he thought of a way to join him without breaking a sweat. And his plan turned out to be a win-win situation for him and his dad, Siamo.
Whenever Siamo does pushups, Sparky positions himself under his dad so he can shower him with kisses. He just lies there with his feet up and waits for his dad to kiss him every time he comes down. Siamo does not mind at all if he’s the only one sweating—what’s important is that his dog keeps him company and makes him forget about how dire the situation is now that Italy is under quarantine.
Siamo is grateful to have Sparky by his side because he lifts his spirits while confined at home. And as for Sparky, he’s doing just fine—in fact, he’s happy to have his dad all to himself.
