Clever Dogs: To Swim or Not to Swim? (2 videos)

  • 1 of 2

Watch these two videos of two dogs and a ball thrown into a swimming pool. They both get the ball but one has a nice swim and the other one stays dry. Guess how he does it.

Scout the Water Dog

Scout, the yellow Lab, seems happier in the water than on dry land. Throw a ball into the pool and he will dive right in for it and swim as though he lived there.

To the tune of a Strauss waltz you will see him, from above and below, doing what he seems to like doing best.

His doggie friends watch with envy but with no desire to emulate his exercise.
