There are a lot of funny dogs out there. There were those two adorable dogtectives who went viral for their "conversation" about the proper pupcedure when your human's in trouble. There was that hyperactive hound who couldn't stop photobombing his pawrents' engagement photos. And we'll always love the pup who proved that dogs all have the same manic reaction to hearing you open up a bag of potato chips. But there's something special about Leny, the Golden Retriever from Spokane, Washington, who is going viral for how much he loves rolling down hills.

That's it. There's nothing more to it!

But the sheer delight that Leny gets out of sliding down a steep slope is nothing short of inspiring.

Give him a hill and a running start and Leny's set for life.

Some of his falls are more graceful than others.

And sometimes he needs to put in a little more effort to wriggle his way down an icy mound. But he always perseveres.

This has got to be one of the best videos on his page: On a quiet, misty evening, Leny just casually slid sideways across this hill called Life. Nothing to see here.

God bless you, Leny. Not all heroes wear capes. Some of them just make our days better with their ability to enjoy the little things.
