They’re charming, fluffy and squishy, resembling a stuffed teddy bear from the store. Their eyes are warm and friendly, and they have a personality that is over exuberant and cheerful. A mixture between a Labrador retriever and a Poodle, Labradoodles have got to be one of the most adorable hybrid puppies that I have ever laid eyes on. Place them in water, and they become one of the cutest creatures to grace the earth. If you are in the mood for a heartwarming video that is sure to make you smile, you have to check out this Labradoodle puppy clip. Featured on Animal Planet’s Too Cute! series, we get to take a peek at a litter of eight Labradoodle puppies taking their first swim.
Known to be water retrievers, these delightful five week old puppies are about to get their paws wet for the first time in a backyard kiddie pool. As you watch the video, pay close attention to the mother Labradoodle attentively watching from the side of the pool as her pups experience water for the first time. It’s so sweet how she walks back and forth as each puppy takes a plunge into the great unknown. Rocky the biggest of the litter is up first. He is quite a natural, paddling back and forth showing off for the camera. Next you get to see some of the other puppies take a turn showing off their aquatic DNA. They all seem to take this first swim with grace and thoughtless effort. It’s as if their bodies subconsciously know how to react when transitioning from land to being submerged into water. That is at least until the smallest puppy of the litter, Stanley, takes a turn at a first swim. When he is first placed into the water it appears that he is missing the swimming gene, bobbing around trying to get his bearings straight. However, with enough perseverance and determination he finally gets the hang of it and boastfully shows off to his brother Rocky. Poor little Stanley’s pride is short lived once it’s time to make their way out of the kiddie pool. Rocky climbs over the side with ease, but for Stanley it’s a little different scenario. He kicks his tiny paws and tries so hard to get over the edge of the pool, but his small frame doesn’t have enough oomph to make it over. Thank goodness there is a helping hand to give him the little extra push he needs to send him on his way. He is rewarded with a loving lick from his mom and well deserved cuddle for his adventurous day.
