    Exercising is extremely important, but sometimes, it is difficult for many of us to find the motivation for it. Luckily for some, assistance with this physical task occasionally comes from canine companions.

    Recently, with most schools switching to online classes and people working from home, many have also turned to getting their exercise inside their residence. Gilly, a sweet golden retriever living in West Hartford, Connecticut, is there to lend a hand to her owner Susan with that task.

    Arguably the cutest training partner in existence!
