As many gyms are now closed, many of us find creative ways to exercise and stay fit.
And in order to be more effective, often we tend to invite our friends in the hope that it will motivate us. However, many times the reality is a different story.
A recent video posted on social media has gone viral after a dog owner is doing exercise in his backyard while his pet is sleeping.
And many people are sharing the post with their friends, joking that the sleeping dog is exactly like them.
His name is Wynn, he is on the frontline of Denver’s fight against the Covid-19, who offers comfort and cuddles to the doctors.
How exactly is he helping the medics? - he visits the emergency room at Rose Medical Center and is trained to become an assistance dog to adults, children and veterans with disabilities for the non-profit organization Canine Companions for Independence.
But really, how is he making an impact? – he is showing love to emergency room doctors, who are taking a break from their shift. He is sitting next to them while also listening to meditating music.
Before doctors can cuddle Wynn, they are required to wash their hands in order to prevent the possible spread of germs.
The dog owner, Ryan, believes that dogs can have a positive impact on doctors and nurses during this difficult time. 'Seeing stuff and hearing stuff that you can't unsee has an impact on you,' she said.
'That's where the dogs come in. When you are in the presence of the dog and petting them you are taking a moment to ground yourself at that present time.'
Wynn will be under the Ryan’s care until she is 22 months old, and then she'll move on to a professional training program at one of the organization's training centers.
More than 520,427 coronavirus cases have been confirmed until today, with over 23,595 deaths. In the United States, there are 81,714 confirmed cases with over 1,143 deaths.
