This adorable video shows a dog’s priceless reaction to seeing a pod of frolicking dolphins for the first time.
Professional fisherman Brian Evans, 32 and partner Natalia Smith were on their fishing boat with one-year-old Australian Shepherd Darla, when the dolphins began to leap from the water.
The dolphins swam alongside the boat off Anacapa island, on the coast of Ventura, California, USA, prompting a curious, and heart warming reaction, from Darla.
Dental Technician Natalia Smith, 31, from Ventura, said: “Darla is an adventurous water dog. She’s loving, smart and seems more human sometimes than animal.
“My boyfriend and I go fishing all the time on the lake and ocean and we bring Darla every time. We’ve taken her on the water since she was three-months-old, so she has better sea legs than most people!
“She loves to inspect the fish we catch, stare at the sea lions and this was the first time she got to see dolphins.
“First, we made sure she was safe, on a secure leash. We loved being surrounded by the dolphins and enjoyed seeing it from her perspective. The moment was pretty surreal to be able to show her something so beautiful.
“She loves having the wind in her face on the water and isn’t scared of anything out there. Everyday we try and show her something new just to see her reaction.
“We don’t have kids so this is our fur-child.”
