  1. They give their lives to save ours, and prove it everyday…that’s why they are called “Man’s Best Friend”…amazing video!

  2. My dog did this naturally… She “saved” me (constantly) every time we went for a swim. It was one her favorite pastimes! Any break I had was when she would sit on her raft(s), but I had to stay right with her or she would jump off and “save” me again 🙂

  3. Lets hope my two-legger doesn’t get any bright ideas here. For goodness sake I have been through obedience, agility, and heaven help me if she decides she wants me try this….Gee all I want to do is guard the couch!

  4. Being from Newfoundland, can’t help ALWAYS feeling great pride in “OUR” dogs…..AWESOME video….first time I’ve seen them used with the chopper….and OF COURSE, AWESOME dogs!!!!!!!!
