A Friendly Becomes Super Friendly: Two Dogs Run Onto The Field During A Soccer Match
January 16, 2013

This is why so many people love dogs - they're warm, curious, free-spirited, and just all around happy go lucky animals.

In this video, a couple of dogs run onto the field during a friendly soccer match in Turkey - apparently just to run about and say hi.

And watch how calm they are, as officials carry them off the field.

It's not clear where the dogs came from. But if you look at the video, it appears they might have been the only ones watching the game.

By the way, if you want to read an interesting piece about why people love dogs, check out this piece from Slate magazine.

Here's an excerpt.

"They dance with joy when we come home, put their heads on our knees and stare longingly into our eyes. Ah, we think, at last, the love and loyalty we so richly deserve and so rarely receive. Over thousands of years of living with humans, dogs have become wily and transfixing sidekicks with the particularly appealing characteristic of being unable to speak. We are therefore free to fill in the blanks with what we need to hear."

There's also a piece on TIME's website with Michael Schaffer, who wrote a book called 'One Nation Under Dog' about some people's need to treat their dogs like children.

Check it out here.
