Dogs are beautiful, sometimes majestic, sometimes bumbling creatures who love us unconditionally.
Some are athletic. Some are graceful. Some are tough, some are silly, and some are this dog that absolutely, 100 percent cannot swim. While Holly M. was enjoying a beautiful day at the lake with her sister and the doggo in question, the humans thought, “Hey! You have four legs. You must be a good swimmer.” So with that, they strapped him into a life jacket. Holly’s sister hopped in because she was eager to get in on the fun, which was great right up until it hilariously wasn’t.
Meet Sam. He’s adorable, obviously. But despite being a golden retriever, he never really caught onto the whole swimming thing.
Last week, while Holly, her sister, and Sam were at the lake, they decided to take a dip. Of course, they gave the pooch a life jacket so he’d be safe… the girls just never expected that they would, in turn, need more safety gear.
“HELLO, HUMAN. YES, HI. PLEASE HELP ME.”
Holly’s sister took the brunt of Sam’s frantic attempts to stay above the surface, despite the fact that he was wearing a very buoyant life vest.
“OH! WAVE TO CAMERA, HUMAN!”
“THERE CAN ONLY BE ONE.”
Fortunately, Holly’s sister lived to tell the hilarious tale and eventually, the two of them made it out of the water before things truly got out of hand. Naturally, Holly took to the internet to mock her sister’s hysterical “swimming lesson” with Sam.
True to Twitter form, barely anyone was worried about the girl even though the dog was clearly fine and the human was visibly drowning.
Of course, people turned the experience into a meme and the results are hilarious.
So when the urge strikes and you feel like teaching your dog to swim, remember this ominous warning. They may pretend to love us, but they’ll throw us into a watery grave the first chance they get. All joking aside, Sam and Holly’s sister are fine.
Share Sam’s ridiculous day at the lake to make someone else laugh!
