Tennis has officially gone to the dogs.

There’s a reason the golden retriever belongs to the sporting group of dogs, and it’s not just because of the Air Bud franchise. These purebreds have proven through eating contests and agility competitions that they are the toughest of athletes. 

But like any good athlete, a golden enjoys watching a good game as much as he enjoys playing in one. If you need any proof of that fact, just turn to Georges. 

This amber-haired golden has an entire YouTube channel dedicated to documenting the excitement he exhibits while watching some of the world’s biggest sporting events. But despite his love of football, soccer, and hockey, tennis remains his favorite past time. 

Venus Williams’ ball boys better watch their back. If this beast ever gets on the court, there’s no telling how many balls he’ll retrieve.
