A dog on a waterslide? Well, you know how it is... You look to make a splash at a child's birthday party by renting a giant waterslide, wait patiently for it to be set up and get ready to have a go yourself – only to find your dog is determined to have all the fun.
This is exactly what happened to a couple in Schertz, Texas, when they decided to give their young girl a treat.
“We rented a water slide for my boyfriend's daughter's birthday,” they wrote beneath an hilarious video posted on YouTube. “Turns out my chocolate Labrador had more fun playing in it.”

As the smartphone camera zooms in during the 35-second clip – filmed on a gorgeous sunny day – you can see the dog suddenly emerge down the slide.
He then spins around, darts back up the steps to the right with all the enthusiasm anyone would have with such an impressive inflatable sitting in the garden, before waiting while a child takes her turn and following her back down again.
The dog's owner is clearly delighted that everyone in the family is enjoying themselves because she films again, this time from a different angle, chuckling as the Lab plunges into the pool at the bottom and shakes the water from his fur.
