I find it impressive that the dog knows to grab onto the rope.

Always time to play tug of war

Practice for the real tug of war with life.

Yeah, my first thought was " that dog is a lot smarter than mine"

Just a friendly advice. If you find yourself in a situation like this, don't bite the rope, use your hands instead. Much better, believe my experience.

Or he's done it before.

I'm not sure I understand how this precludes the wonder they had about how it knew how to do it, whether it was today or a week ago xD

Good boys are always down to fetch or play tug of war. Glad he did in any case though, because that big guy was going straight through the ice if he got too much closer.

Lol same. I looked over at my big idiot and he’d probably pull us both in.

That dog is much smarter than its owner it seems.

I found it interesting that it didn't drop the rope and run when it got free - almost "just in case YOU fall in, I'll hold it and pull YOU out."

My guess is most dogs will try anything to get out my dog crawls all over me if he gets tired of swimming (even though I’ve got a life vest on him :/ )

Yeah I've seen one bite the ladder and just hang on but that even though the shore was 5 feet in the other direction.

That is what impressed you and not the ice holding up the not very thin guy?!


FantasmaNaranja t1_jaacc9k wrote

that's presumably what the stick in front of him was for, find out if the ice is thin enough to crack with the pressure he's applying or not


Tandemdonkey t1_jaay3ti wrote

The ice he's standing on could easily still be thick enough to hold a small vehicle, ice is far stronger than most people realize, generally when ice opens up it's not because of something on top of it necessarily, there's usually already a crack or something that was pushed by something on top, holes also open up seemingly at random all the time, particularly on larger lakes, you'll be out on the ice and hear what sounds like an explosion in the distance and see a large whole open up(my dad saw one open up about 100 feet from a dude who drove his truck out onto the ice, dude was shook), large cracks will also often be quite loud, but are generally harmless

That's because this isn't the first time homie has thrown his dog in icy water for attention.

Dogs will respond to a human pointing where as wolves will not. There has to be a sense of understanding between the two even if it's not spoken

Had it been a shitzhu it would have looked at the rope and crapped itself.

that's the only thing dogs do with a rope
