Two Labrador puppies invade pitch during Galatasaray friendly match

Dirty Tackle

The adorable-o-meter registered record readings at a friendly between Galatasaray and the 2. Bundesliga's VfR Aalen in Istanbul, as play was halted by the introduction of two playful Labradors. If this doesn't get more signatures on my e-petition for FIFA-sanctioned puppy breaks in every match, I simply don't know what will.

It's not known how the mutts made it onto the field (Air Bud: World Pup viral marketing? Animal kingdom oneupmanship on the Anfield Cat and the Blackburn chicken?) but the funniest part of the video is the steward attempting to carry one of them off the field in the most awkward manner possible. Holding it at arm's length like someone else's screaming baby with a diaper full of stink doesn't exactly show a strong bond with man's best friend.
