Very good dog is very excited to fetch kicking tee at a football game

Dogs are always good, but New Mexico State’s dog is very good.

Striking the Wonder Dog, as he’s called, is tasked with fetching the tee whenever the New Mexico State Aggies play. 

And boy wasn’t he excited to go get that tee when the Aggies played Wyoming on Saturday, as evidence in the game’s broadcast on ESPN. 

Striking, a border collie, has been part of the New Mexico State setup for the past four years, where he was named as a successor to the now-retired Smoki the Wonder Dog.

Fetching the tee during a college football game isn’t Striking’s only job. He’s been part of the Mesilla Valley Search and Rescue team, as well as serving as a wilderness search dog for the state of New Mexico.

Of course, as Boise State fans will probably itch to tell us, Striking isn’t the only tee-fetching dog around.

Boise has Kohl, who is part of the college’s long-standing tradition of special teams dogs. Look, we just hope the gospel of good dogs in sports continue to spread.
