Today we’re highlighting man (or Wolverine) and his best friend. Hugh Jackman hard at work pumping up his gorgeous body at a local NYC gym with his dog Dali, a cute French bulldog, for a little extra security and companionship. I’ve heard he’s filming the next X-man movie, X-Men: Days of Future Past, due out in 2014. There’s been some snarky media comments about Dali being his guard dog, but I think non-dog owners often don’t realize that smaller dogs can actually be quite protective and warn their owners of potential threats. It looks like Dali has logged a lot of gym time with “daddy” and must figure it’s a good time for a nap. I’m sure Hugh Jackman is in there for hours. I just wish we knew what gym this was in NYC and if it has a dog friendly policy for all members.
It always puts a smile on my face when I see dog owners integrating their best friends into daily activities from going to the gym to taking a walk on the beach. When well trained and exposed to social, urban environments, dogs can be really well behaved and fun to accompany us on our daily activities. Even the French understand that a well behaved dog in a restaurant or bar is ok and shouldn’t be considered an immediate health threat.
Let’s all hope one day in the future Hugh Jackman will put out a video on how to work out with your dog, featuring Dali!
Now that would be fun!
