Pumpkin, the bulldog, has generated many fans online and became an internet sensation. The fans cheer up every time they see videos of Pumpkin doing her skateboard tricks. Her owner, Debra Chandler, who lives in Ashby-de-la-Zouch, Leicestershire calls her the coolest bulldog in the UK.
It all started when Debra bought a skateboard for her pet dog just for fun. Pumpkin was 8-weeks-old when she began to ride the skateboard. At first, the dog was just paddling. Eventually, she became obsessed with it. She would not stop until she learned the game. Now she would do it almost every day. In the videos, the pup is seen using the hind legs to push herself while on board.
Even the neighbors are very amused watching her. At first, Debra posted videos of her pet. Now there are lots of videos of skateboarding Pumpkin posted on the internet. Sometimes, Debra would put her on colorful clothes to make people happier. She also opened a page for Pumpkin on social media and used her profile to support The Edward Foundation with the money that might be generated. The Foundation aims to rescue bulldogs.
Debra said that she loves Pumpkin very much. She describes her dog as naughty, funny, and intelligent. She never ceases to make her happy. And now, she is very proud of what her dog has achieved. She has thousands of followers online, and she also aims to help other bulldogs like her.
Incidentally, other bulldogs have the same super talent in skateboarding like Pumpkin. Two years ago in France, there was one bulldog that almost entered the BBC building onboard his skateboard. Luckily, he was caught on time by an employee who stopped him and diverted his skateboard to another direction. Everybody who saw him was happily surprised and amused by his talent.
Also in 2015, another bulldog named Otto captured a Guinness Book of World Record, when he skateboarded through a “longest human tunnel” in the country of Peru. This shows how intelligent dogs are, especially skateboarding bulldogs.
