Just in case you’re having a bout of “I can’t” or “I won’t” or “Why bother even trying?” we present to you this: five wheelcart dogs playing fetch alongside three able-legged dogs. Everyone is barking.

Everyone is getting exercise. Everyone seems to be having fun, regardless of who’s actually getting that stick.

The video comes from YouTube user Gritta Goetz, who rehabilitates disabled dogs. Goetz also drew attention this week with a second video titled “Rina’s Small Miracle.”

Goetz explained that Rina had been used for target practice by her original owners in Bulgaria and that 20 projectiles had to be removed from her body.
