Dolphin Plays Hide-And-Seek With Dog On Boat , And It’s Going To Melt Your Heart.

You're probably wondering how a Rottweiler-Husky mix named Lucy and a dolphin named Gus could ever become friends. After all, when you think of your dog and how he or she reacts whenever you try to give them a bath, you realize that some dogs just don't like the water. But dolphins do! It's their proverbial playground and where they live, eat, and do things that all living creatures do. But somehow, this unlikely duo managed to meet and they hit it off right away, and despite the fact that they have very little in common, they don't have to explain their friendship to anyone, because it simply works!

This sweet puppy named Lucy is a nearly three-year-old Rottweiler-Husky mix who loves humans.

You can tell that Lucy is adorable by the way that she licked her best friend, Cliff Gilchrist's face, who also happens to be a charter company owner. Lucy smooched Gilchrist while they sailed through the waters near Captiva Island in Southwest Florida. Gilchrist and Lucy were also joined by Eileen McGunagle on this charter trip.

Lucy might seem like your average land-loving dog, but she's definitely more than she appears to be.

You see, Lucy has been venturing on these charter trips since she was a tiny puppy, so she has definitely grown some proverbial sea legs. This came in handy when Lucy befriended an animal who popped out from under the sea.

In a lot of the cases, most dogs would give in to their natural instincts and just jump off the boat.

For a lot of folks who bring their dogs along when they head out to sea, it seems difficult, if not impossible, to keep them from heading into the water, especially since there are lots of sea creatures that can peak a pooch's curiosity.
