Tetherball generally isn't our favorite pastime, but when you add a group of five bulldogs to the mix, we suddenly find ourselves with a new appreciation for the game.

The dogs in this clip play what surely qualifies as the most lethargic, least coordinated game of tetherball ever. Most of them struggle just to get their big butts off the ground.

Still, they sure seem to have a blast as they bat the ball back and forth. There also seems to be an inordinate amount of snarling going on, but that may be just because they're winded from the exercise. Take it easy, pooches. Pace yourselves.
