I want to get this out to you before the video disappears again. 'Maddy' the cute little dog, doesn't quite know how to react to her new friend, 'Mr. Crab.' Enjoy!!

Got it the second time.

Amazing how fast the crab can move... Yep, the pup kept playing until the crab disappeared
into the water wave... Cute...

Ty, Barb.

Thanks Barb, for this one. Cute little puppy, and very energetic for both of them to play. Tho' the crab made a beeline for the surf. Last picture was adorable, Maddy looking into the surf looking for her playmate.

Got the video the 1st time. So adorable. And my favorite breed of dog. My Doxies would have eaten the crab if caught.

That was cute. Pity that the crab didn't understand what a play bow is for.

That crap darted for that ocean escape in every direction s / he could move in, even backwards! I would have called off my dog much sooner as the crap was clearly terrified, but smart, too. Relief that he outsmarted that dog. The dog was wagging her tail, which is playful, of course. Well shot video, with the epilogue of Maddy searching one final time in the wake of the last wave that had returned the crap to safety.

This proves no animal is stupid. That crab was aiming for the water with a vengeance. Who knew they could move that fast on land?

Very cute! Thank goodness the dog never got pinched on the nose as it would have been a lot less happy and playful!
