Video goodness: Dog rides tortoise

May 24, 2010 |  9:27 pm

We're not sure which animal we love more -- Hope, the adventurous (or lazy, depending upon how you look at things) dog, or Carl, who we suspect may be the most good-natured tortoise ever born.

We suppose we'll just have to call it a tie.

Though we're not entirely sure how we feel about YouTube user davidbeier's assertion that "God is using our much loved puppy named Hope to bring you this gospel, or good news," we appreciate the sentiment, nonetheless. (We have a hunch -- just a hunch -- that God has more important business to attend to than inspiring dogs to ride tortoises. But then again, what do we know?)

This fascinating and odd video has made the Internet rounds, but our favorite comment so far has to be from CuteOverload reader Jerilyn, who writes, "Is this a new take on the Tortoise and the Hare? No more 'slow [and] steady wins the race.' Now it's 'Hop aboard the tortoise ferry for the win!??!!' "

"Hop aboard the tortoise ferry for the win" ... now that's a motto we can get behind.
