We know it’s hard to focus on just one of these dogs – they’re all completely adorable, of course. But you’re going to want to keep your eye on one: the little guy on the left. These hilarious little pups are all lining up for a race in the water. Good fun, a little lighthearted competition. But the one on the left is in it to win it – he’s so ready to go! Watch the video below for the moment when they zoom in on him.
Did you see it? He’s paddling before he ever hits the water! Have you ever wondered why dogs do that? Well, according to The Daily Puppy, it could be for a variety of reasons. He could be panicking, if he really doesn’t like the water or doesn’t like being picked up in general. It could be reflex, like he’s getting ready to get in the water. It could even be learned, like if the people around him gave him positive attention when he did it the first time so he kept doing it.
It seems like the little guy is born for the water, but according to Everything Dachshunds, not all dachshunds like the water. And even if they do, they need to be watched closely, because they can actually sink. This guy looks like a winner though! If you haven’t watched the video already, make sure to go see it and watch this adorable pup swim to victory. If you already watched it, send it to some friends!
