This one-of-a-kind dog could walk on water.
The hunter was looking forward to showing off his new acquisition to his friends.
He invited a friend to go duck hunting.
After some time, they shot a few ducks and the man ordered his dog to fetch the birds.All day long, whenever there were birds to be fetched, the dog ran on water to retrieve the birds.
The owner was expecting his friend to comment or compliment him about this amazing dog, but never got one.
The friend replied, Yes, in fact, I did notice something unusual. Your dog cant swim.
