    Dogs are believed to feel comfortable in the water, and they usually are quite happy to accompany their owners for a swim. However, they have their fears too and a fear of water is not that rare among dogs.

    A video was shared on Twitter earlier this week, showing a golden retriever playing with a ball on the shore.

    Once the ball fell onto the wet sand, the dog tried to approach it but the toy was so close to the water that the tide - and not the retriever -  almost grabbed it.  

    Although the dog looked a bit scared of the waves and was crouching, it eventually managed to 'release' the ball from the ocean's 'captivity'.

      Best of Frenemies: Shiba Inu and Kitten Learn How to Fight

      Everyone knows that dogs and cats have form when it comes to scrapping, but the expectation that the fur will fly and the air be thick with a load of barking, yowling, and spitting whenever the twain shall meet may just be a stereotype. Sometimes, however, although it looks like a fight, the animals are really playing and are the best of buds.
