Life can be incredibly taxing when you're incredibly cute. So, sometimes you just need to get away for a little summer fun.

While Mattis K9 is adorable, he's also hard at work as the first ever therapy dog in training for the Franklin County Sheriff's Office.

The six-month-old pup started a road trip last week that has him going westward. After passing through Indiana, Illinois, and Iowa, Mattis stopped by Mount Rushmore and Badlands National Park in South Dakota.

His trainer says his progress is going well as is his interaction with people he's meeting along the way.
