You can buy Charcoal the Lab all the squeaky toys and fancy balls in the world — but all he needs is a bucket to have a grand old time by himself.

After all, you can play in the water with it, fetch it and even wear it over your head! (Of course, as a Vetstreet reader, you already know that you should always supervise your pet with his toys and make sure safety is a top priority, right? Right!)

YouTube user cdal233 says this amusing video compilation of Charcoal, cdal233's mother’s dog, having all sorts of joyful bucket adventures to the tune of Survivor’s "Eye of the Tiger" was made for her birthday. 

Watching this exuberantly happy Lab is really a gift for us all.
