Working Out is a Real B*tch

5/26/2009 2:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

If you haven't gone to the gym lately, this dog named Kirin is about to make you feel even worse about it -- she does squats ... on two legs ... three to four times a week!

Kirin: Click to watch
Squats -- so easy a Japanese Border Collie can do 'em. What's your excuse?

I think that's a horrible trick. It looks very unnatural and uncomfortable for the dog, who has to have the wall for support.

This is so funny....there's nothing so wonderful as seeing funny animals and their unlikely interactions with humans with and trying to emulate human behavior. I love animals...sometimes I think more than I do people.

First video on TMZ to make me laugh out loud. I think this is the best video posted in a long time.

#1 Bagladey - if you would have watched the WHOLE video, you would see that the dog does NOT need the wall for support. He looks like he is having fun and not forced to do anything. Sure, it unnatural, but that's what makes it funny. If it was uncomfortable, believe me, he would not have gotten the dog to do it. Sometimes dogs just like to be just like their owners!! I know mine follow me around all over the house and try to do Pilates with me. They're not very good at it, but when they are, I'll post a video so you can tell me how cruel I am. ;o)

I agree with Jill #2, the Beatles is the best work out music. The pup looks like he really is having fun.

Dogs are eager to pelase their owners, and just because a dog "looks" like it's having fun doesn't mean they are. Squats are a workout for human beings and must be even harder for a dog meant to stand on 4 legs.

No such thing as a 'Japanese Border Collie'. The Border Collie happens to be living in Japan. PS: The activity is bad for the pooch's hips. Poor dog.

Not cool at all. Painful for the dog's hip joints.

GOOD for its hips and hind legs.Cattle and sheep dog prone to going lame in the hind legs.LEG truse`s are GREAT to prevent weak hind legs thus that is why they are doing them.

it is a GREAT exercize to build the back legs which do go lame in many unactive house dogs.One leg on the hinds is weaker on most dogs and that puts stress on the whole dog.Most dogs do the same as this but not as trained to on Q.Working DOG class needs exercize all day long
