Transcript for Puppy takes a dip into lake
[MUSIC - STEPPENWOLF, "BORN TO BE WILD"] Be wild. - Back now with our Play of the Day, and this is perhaps a very sweet example of learning the hard way. Take a look. Three-month-old golden retriever, he's thinking it's green. He's thinking it's grass. Whoa! Whoa! So apparently, this is Walter's first swim lesson. Yes, he learned the hard way. But I love how his friends along the side are like kind of cheering him on like, you got this, you got this. You can make it! You can make it! ROBIN ROBERTS: Aww. AMY ROBACH: And he does, in fact, make it. And, you know, the good thing is, golden retrievers apparently like to swim. And so-- ROBIN ROBERTS: Yeah! AMY ROBACH: --everything was great. But it is one of those moments where you think it's firm, and plop. - So he thought it was grass? - Yeah. - Aww. - I mean, we don't know what he was actually thinking. It's just a guess. I'm thinking he thought it was grass. [LAUGHTER] - I didn't want to say, but I was wondering. But thank you for answering that. Thanks, Amy.
