An amazing video of a Golden retriever puppy struggling to get out of a backyard swimming pool plays like a scene in a dramatic movie. Just when you think the little dog is not going to make it, its hero mother jumps into the water, pushing and pulling the puppy to safety.
The video, which has gone viral, has received a lot of attention, criticism and cynicism from viewers. However, it doesn’t seem like anyone will know the real facts behind the melodrama anytime soon.
Some animal lovers have applauded the bravery and intelligence of the mother dog, while others have criticized the person filming the video for idly standing by while a young dog nearly drowns. And then there are the cynics who think the video is a staged trick with two very well trained animal actors.
Watch the video and come to your own conclusion. Hopefully this is a case of a clever owner and his/her two talented family pets.
