I usually try to keep my posts here on Bilerico at least relatively topical, but every once in awhile something comes along that, while unrelated to LGBT-specific and/or progressive issues, is just so amazing that I can't not share it.

This video from Peace Love and Pitbulls is one such case. Peace Love and Pitbulls is a Las Vegas-based pit bull training and rescue organization. Earlier this year they took in a rescue puppy named Bandit. Apparently, whenever a new rescue enters the pack, the entire pack is quarantined until the newbie catches up on their shots.

But quarantined or not, dogs need exercise, so the rescue group provides the adults with treadmills in order to work off some of their energy. (A rescue with gym equipment for the dogs? How amazing is that?) Someone had the brilliant idea to record little Bandit's first encounter with a treadmill, and the results are almost too cute for words.

The video of Bandit and the treadmill apparently made the rounds earlier this year, but I'd never seen it until yesterday, so I assume many of you may not have seen it either. Trust me, you'll want to watch it all.

Here's your dose of cuteness for the day. Enjoy!
