I like the last one "Where'd the water go?!?"

what a big silly dog!

i'd be doing the same thing if there was no one in line at a big theme park!

Anyone who disputes that animals (esp. dogs) lack the mental capacity for "having fun" should watch this video.

Seriously. I doubt any scientist could find a reasonable explanation involving "instinctual behavior".

 |  Sep 08, 2007 at 06:51 AM

That was so *freakin* hilarious.

Did you see where he stops because the water stopped and looked at his owner with a "Dude! what are you doing!?!?"

 |  Sep 08, 2007 at 06:54 AM

That doggy is having the time of life! So cute!

 |  Sep 08, 2007 at 06:57 AM

Doggie's got the right idea.

You know, it reminds me of those little liquid filled clear plastic boxes, in which toy animals were lifted up to a slide and then splashed back to the bottom. It also reminds me of a wet version of "Plastic Penguin Race."

 |  Sep 08, 2007 at 07:04 AM

Holy crap, hilarious!

That's a pretty bitchin' pool, too. :)

 |  Sep 08, 2007 at 07:07 AM

My turn! My turn! Runs to be the next down the side....

 |  Sep 08, 2007 at 07:09 AM


 |  Sep 08, 2007 at 07:09 AM

Lucky dog! I wish I had a setup like that in my yard!

In one of his books, James Herriot describes watching a local dog repeatedly climbing up and sliding down a slide in a children's playground.

 |  Sep 08, 2007 at 07:30 AM

PS My cat Dante launches himself off the couch to slide across the hardwood floor-- lather, rinse, repeat. Animals dig momentum.

 |  Sep 08, 2007 at 07:31 AM

I knew a woman whose dog would jump into the pool, swim around it along the edges for a few laps, then swim to the steps and get out. The pup didn't need any prompting or someone watching, and he wasn't trained to do this...

 |  Sep 08, 2007 at 07:33 AM

I want to play tooooo! Doggy's having so much fun!!! :D

 |  Sep 08, 2007 at 07:38 AM

hehehehe so funny... funny dog.

 |  Sep 08, 2007 at 07:52 AM

That looks like a happy dog to me! So lovely.

Of course, isn't this the part where someone should be commenting on how cruel it is to train/force your dog to jump into a pool filled with chlorine and how this shouldn't be on Cute Overload because the owner is obviously using this poor, sad dog to gain notoriety?

 |  Sep 08, 2007 at 08:05 AM

I love the fact that here's a big "scary guard dog" acting like a overgrown puppy! He's having the time of his life. I wonder if he bugs his owners till they turn the slide on for him :).

And that pool/hottub/slide/waterfall setup? Pretty darn sweet!

 |  Sep 08, 2007 at 08:33 AM

WHEEEE! Man, this brings back *good* memories. I want to go to a waterpark now...

hehehe I loved watching it the other day and YES Meg I do want to be this dog complete with my very own waterpark slid ride.

 |  Sep 08, 2007 at 08:47 AM

How Flippin' awesome is that hound. He knows where the funs at.

 |  Sep 08, 2007 at 09:01 AM

All I can say is "Life is GOOD!" Heh Heh!

His joy is contagious, thank God. It needs to be spread around a little. Love it!

 |  Sep 08, 2007 at 09:03 AM

I wanna be that dog! Wheeee!

 |  Sep 08, 2007 at 09:20 AM

that doggeh is gonna need a big nap after that play session!

I mailed about this one too. Great to see it shared with the other cute-loving people on this page. And yeah, dobermans might look big and scary, but every single one I've met has acted like a boisterous puppy! Gotta love'm!

absolutely, positively, no-doubt-about-it, indubidably, undisputably AWE to the SOME.

*man,* i needed that!!! 'twas a positively joyless saturday 'til this video. much better now.

 |  Sep 08, 2007 at 09:42 AM

Oh no. Now I'm going to watch this all day. But how smart is that dog that he knows the water must be flowing down the slide and not the rocks for maximum slideage?

 |  Sep 08, 2007 at 09:42 AM

I like how he keeps sliding down on all foursees.

I wish I was that dog too, but I also wish I just had that much ENERGY.

That's a dog you never need to wash. He's self-washing!

 |  Sep 08, 2007 at 10:06 AM

Cute dog, great video, stupid pool design. With the momentum that dog has he could easily smack himself against the concrete edge. I mean it looks great, but whoever thought of that sloping edge should have pushed it 5ft-10ft back.

Ok...enough with the disapproving...back to caturday!

 |  Sep 08, 2007 at 10:12 AM

wish i had that in my garden. lucky doggeh

 |  Sep 08, 2007 at 10:26 AM

Hehe! My dogs hate water; I wish they would have so much fun with it. I also wish I had this sweet pool in my backyard. ;_;

 |  Sep 08, 2007 at 10:29 AM

I want that pool!

And the dawg too! He looks like a great swimming buddy.

 |  Sep 08, 2007 at 11:05 AM


 |  Sep 08, 2007 at 11:09 AM

Dog has to be part Lab.....

 |  Sep 08, 2007 at 11:55 AM

Hee! Did you see the little doggeh run for the hills as soon as the water came on the first time?

I don't need the pool. I just want the awesome waterfall!

 |  Sep 08, 2007 at 12:31 PM

Dog Heaven.

 |  Sep 08, 2007 at 01:13 PM

Well, Liani, since there are no children in the video, the chances of a potential commentroversy are greatly reduced.

Either that or internet's about to ovulate and therefore is not likely to burst forth in a PMSy rage. :D

 |  Sep 08, 2007 at 01:59 PM

Boy that looked like fun! I always loved the James Herriot story about the sliding dog, too! Dogs are *serious* about fun!

 |  Sep 08, 2007 at 02:29 PM

I think Dobermans have eventually triumphed over their reputation. I;ve never known a dobie that wasn't a first-class wuss. Now I wish the same thing could happen for pit bulls.

 |  Sep 08, 2007 at 03:42 PM

My first dog loved to slide over and over, but on a regular slide. She competed in agility when she was young, and it was impossible to keep her off playground equipment if we ever went to a park. What an awesome video!

 |  Sep 08, 2007 at 04:12 PM

Wow! My doberman was also a wuss! Terrified of the snow. Even freaked out walking across the tiles at the pet store. Are you sure this one hasn't just eaten the Caturdays and celebrating?! Meep!

 |  Sep 08, 2007 at 04:12 PM

Is he trying to catch the water? His head keeps going down close to where the water emerges.

 |  Sep 08, 2007 at 05:16 PM

@ Vicki: Actually, seeking pleasure (having fun) does have an instinctual basis. ;) More precisely, it has to do with neurotransmitters. We (and that includes dogs) are hardwired evolutionarily to feel pleasure, and we have instincts to seek it (especially when we figure out what gives it to us). It's still fun. But it has an instinctual basis.

 |  Sep 08, 2007 at 07:04 PM

Wanna talk about animals having fun. Somewhere out there there's a video floating around of an Elephant playing tricks on it's trainer. The thing clearly has a complex sense of humor. I'll try to dig it up.

wow THE coolest dog evr my dog is afraid of water

 |  Sep 08, 2007 at 10:15 PM

How long did he carry on doing this!?!?!?
