Spring Practice Was Ruff: Dog dominates Auburn scrimmage in 1964 film

There’s been a recent explosion of 8mm Auburn treasures on YouTube. We are honored to feature arguably the greatest to date—three minutes of footage of a dog weaving in and out of plays during an Auburn spring practice in 1964.

Around 1:20 he even gets in on a tackle. No one bats an eye. (Can’t see the video? Try here.)

As to my theory that Auburn is the college campus exhibit in some Platonic Disneyland,  Air Bud: The Dog Bone Formation (or should it be The Twelfth Man’s Best Friend?) trumps even the Flubber punts, etc.

We also get some campus footage. Parker Hall! The green space! Also, dig that tiger sticker on dude’s passenger-side window.
