VANCOUVER, Wash. (AP) — Duncan Lou Who may be missing half of his legs, but he has no shortage of spirit — or fans.

The 9-month-old boxer visited the beach for the first time two weeks ago. His humans, Amanda Giese and Gary Walters of Felida, filmed Duncan as he raced across the sand, chased sticks and explored the waves rolling up on the beach.

That two-minute video of little Duncan Lou Who has garnered 3.2 million views, and counting, since it was posted on YouTube on March 22. The video has made headlines across the U.S. — he was on the CNN website homepage Thursday and is scheduled to appear on the “Today” show this morning — and beyond, including Spain, Australia and the U.K.
