Justin Thomas on why he loves his dog Franklin

The video has several clips where Thomas plays with Franklin, trying to stop him from reaching up the tree. “He’s been obsessed with these trees. Whenever he gets near them he just is…infatuated with the lizards going up them. Dogs are the best,” Thomas says in the video.

Thomas added that anyone with a dog knows that there is nothing like them, and he has only been joyful for him and his girlfriend. He even considered putting his WHOOP on Franklin, checking how high his heart rate might go. He even mentioned Jordan and Annie Spieth also bring their dog on the road quite often.

“That dog truly has no idea what I shot. They’re just happy to see you. So that’s brought a little bit of extra joy for sure for us,” Thomas mentions.

The video also has Thomas’ interactions with Franklin. “Come on knucklehead,” he says in the end as the video blacks out.
