Furback Fridays: A look at some favorite pop culture pets of yore.

An important part of anyone's day, exercise has numerous benefits for dogs. And while treadmills are a popular way to help dogs knock out some solid exercise time, they're even cuter when puppies try to use them.

Case in point? This video posted in January of 2013.

Bandit tries desperately to join an older dog on the treadmill for a walk and the results are equal parts hilarious and adorable.

So in honor of Furback Fridays, take a look at this golden gem of yore.
