Just in case you missed it, the video below is the viral clip of a Labrador who taught his puppies to swim. This footage has been making rounds for some time now, and a definite hit! The vid shows how awesome dogs can be and that they have this survival instinct in them. It is one of the proofs that even the ‘modern’ dogs that we have tamed in our homes still have the characteristics of their ancient ancestors. Aside from that, what is really adorable in this video is the show of love and communication between the father and his puppies. It is just so lovely to see that they can really communicate in a way that we may not understand but often see in their interactions.

Now, this is really fun to watch. Play the video and watch how dogs are able to do swimming lessons on their own and without supervision from anyone else.
