Thanks to MindBodyGreen for the heads up and blowing our mind body hearts. Granted this is from the National Enquirer, the paper we look to for our ‘Obama is an alien’ updates and Betty White’s bird-flipping road rage, so you know, take this how you like.
But it seems Ryan Gosling loves his dog George so much he wants him to experience the yog too, so he brought him along to class. Awww. But yoga “meanies” didn’t think it was so cute, maybe because the dog was nosing people in the crotch and peeing in the corner?:
Ryan Gosling… has been causing a ruckus in his West Hollywood yoga class by bringing along his beloved pooch George – who interrupts workouts by pestering people, barking and even marking his territory!
“Ryan is a great guy and everyone in class loves him, but they find it very disrespectful that he brings his dog,” revealed a gym insider. “Ryan put a mat next to him and attempted to get George to stay on it. But it only took about 30 seconds before George began walking around and disturbing people who were trying to concentrate on their workouts.
“The instructor finally asked Ryan to remove George from the room after the dog began relieving himself in the corner!”…
The worst part about the yoga fiasco, said the insider, is that…
“He actually tried to bring him to class again,” added the insider. “The instructor immediately told him George was not allowed back in class!”
Sounds disruptive, but comparing it to some sweaty, stinky, groany neighbors in class it can’t be that much worse. And there such a thing called Doga, Mr. Gosling. But while this could make ladies man Ryan out to be an inconsiderate jerk, we just can’t sway ourselves from thinking ‘aww, come on guys, he just cares about his dog so much he wants his companion there to experience yoga too!’ Must. Stop. Watching. Romantic. Movies. Starring Ryan Gosling. (‘The Notebook,’ ‘Crazy, Stupid, Love,’ etc) sigh.
