Even if you’re not playing it, you’ve heard of Pokémon Go by now. (If not: Welcome back from the cave you’ve been living in, and here’s an explainer.)
Who else knows about this augmented reality obsession? Dogs, that’s who. For every dog owner gripped by the app, a dog is being dragged out on Pokémon-hunting walks. And they are here to tell you that it is positively exhausting.
This one is supposedly tired but actually looks pretty happy about it.
Truth is, lots of dogs on Twitter are hailing Pokémon Go as the best thing to happen to dog walk frequency since the Fitbit.
Embarrassed about your Pokémon Go habit but don’t have a dog to make it look more legit? Hit up a shelter. The Muncie Animal Shelter in Indiana is looking for players who want to walk homeless dogs while they hunt for Pokémon.
